Fans of Nine Inch Nails, get ready to rejoice. Your favorite hard rock/industrial act not only has a new album due out next month (the six-song LP Bad Witch) but is embarking on a 14-city tour this fall.
And they're kicking off in Phoenix with a two-night stint at Comerica Theatre in September.
Better start picking out some pleather pants and combat boots.
Nine Inch Nails has announced that they will perform at Comerica Theatre on Thursday, September 13, and Friday, September 14, which will be the first shows of their “Cold and Black and Infinite Tour.”
A number of other cities across the U.S. will be visited by NIN during the tour, including L.A., New York City, Chicago, Detroit, and New Orleans. Phoenix, however, gets the honor of being the first.
NIN be joined by alt-rock/noise pop band The Jesus and Mary Chain, who will serve as openers.
As with any band that's been around as long as Nine Inch Nails, which started in 1989, you can expect them to perform a variety of songs from throughout their lengthy discography, as well as numerous tracks from Bad Witch. (Personally, we're expecting to hear “Head Like A Hole,” “Closer,” “Wish,” and “We're In This Together.”)
Tickets for the shows go on sale to the public on Saturday, May 19, but you'll have to pull yourself away from the computer to purchase 'em.

NIN has announced they will sell tickets to the tour, including both shows at Comerica Theatre, at in-person pre-sale events that will take place at each venue's box office. (Full details can be found here.)
According to the band, it's “an attempt to get tickets directly into the hands of fans instead of resellers.” All seats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and people can purchase up to four tickets each.
In other words, get ready to stand in line outside of Comerica Theatre for a few hours if you want tickets.
And given all the warm weather this time of year, you'll probably want to leave the
