Not too many acts have as streaky a career as Nine Inch Nails. One tour they're playing the Marquee, the next they're headlining at Cricket Wireless Pavilion with Jane's Addiction, as they will in May. The bands are joined by Tom Morello's new band Street Sweeper. That show is just one of the big concerts announced last week. Read on for full listings and a vintage NIN video.
