Nine Inch Nails Cancel Grand Rapids Show, Donate Merch Sales to Food Banks
Forced to cancel their tour due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Nine Inch Nails is donating merchandise sales to local food banks in the cities the band was scheduled to play.
This includes Grand Rapids, The Detroit News reports.
If you're like, huh, NIN was coming to Grand Rapids? The show actually had not been announced yet. Frontman Trent Reznor the news on Twitter:
I was just reminded today marks the two year anniversary of when we made you show up in person for the Cold and Black and Infinite tour. Strange to think about with the world the way it is now.I look forward to the day we can once again safely be in the same space & share the experience of screaming at the top of our lungs. Speaking of which, I suppose I can let you know we HAD a tour booked this fall that continued & expanded Cold & Black & Infinite.
So NIN had planned to play at the DeltaPlex Oct. 15, 2020.
Will it be rescheduled?
Reznor says in the Twitter thread "the current plan is to finish up some scoring projects, work on my limited patience skills, deep dive into new NIN material, and hopefully be playing music live for you in 2021."
So hopefully the GR concert will get a new date! And in the meantime, NIN is helping to feed the hungry here in Grand Rapids, which is awesome.
You can check out the merch from the now-canceled tour on NIN's website.
