Today Marks 8 Years Since Nine Inch Nails Performed In El Paso
It has been a really long time since Nine Inch Nails performed in El Paso, Texas. The last time some of us remember seeing Nine Inch Nails in El Paso was 8 years ago. For me, my first and what seems to be my last time seeing Nine Inch Nails was at the Don Haskins Center in 2013.
I remember looking forward to that show and as soon as I and my plus one finally got seated, I started coming down with something. I felt the chills and body aches starting to consume my attention that evening.
But regardless of how I was physically feeling, I was definitely not going to miss any action because who knows when I could experience it again. Which now that I look back I am so glad I stayed instead of leaving the concert early.
Because look at how long it has been since Nine Inch Nails returned to El Paso. Now I waited through 25 songs just to not hear one of my favorite Nine Inch Nails songs.
I was hoping to hear "The Perfect Drug" which Nine Inch Nails sang for the soundtrack to Lost Highway many years ago. This was one concert I actually kept my cell phone tucked away after recording just a snippet of Nine Inch Nails finally taking the stage.
But Brian Ruiz had a damn good view at the Nine Inch Nails show and captured good footage of "While I'm Still Here" as he sat in front of the stage. While Alejandro Garcia recorded a perfectly great clip of Nine Inch Nails "Hurt" from the middle section at Don Haskins Center.
Savage Amber must have had an unsteady stance as she recorded "The Hand That Feeds" during Nine Inch Nails concert.
Just the fifteen seconds of Nine Inch Nails opener should be easy to point out. Nine Inch Nails kicked off the El Paso show with "Copy of A" at the Don Haskins Center. You can see the full set list from Nine Inch Nails show in El Paso 8 years ago by clicking here.
