December 15, 1999 - New York, NY - nine inch nails have announced that their first-ever concert television special will air exclusively on MTV on Tuesday, December 21st at 11:00pm (ET/PT). The 30-minute television event will provide fans with the first televised peek at the band's sold-out, critically lauded European "Fragility" tour.

In reviewing nine inch nails' London show, Melody Maker stated, "Pretty great machine...there's no one who uses the word fuck quite like Trent Reznor... Reznor is a law unto himself...Reznor has the mystique of a dark angel, a presence that permeates every awe-filled onlooker." In Milan, La Republica stated, "hard, intense, visionary music...nine inch nails have literally driven to collective exaltation the people gathered at The Alcatraz in Milan...it was the hardest and most fascinating rock show of the year."

The footage for the special has been culled from shows in Barcelona, Milan, Munich, Vienna, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, Dusseldorf, Tilburg and London, and was shot by both fans - picked randomly from the crowd - and professional cameramen.


The MTV special was a way to document the first of I hope many legs of the 'fragility' tour. The size of venues, the choice of music, the scale and approach to production of those shows will most likely not be reproduced EVER with the exception of possibly Japan. I was pleasantly surprised at the reaction and felt the need to somehow fill everybody else in on what happened.

Technical notes: all the video was filmed by friends and fans on consumer level DV. The audio was mixed in a studio, but not 'fixed' or re-recorded as is so often so.

What you see is close to what it was - close but not the same.
