Hello, I just had to tell you about the big show last night at the Toledo Sports Arena in Toledo Tuesday night, February 21st, the first big show to come to Toledo so far this young year.

Nine Inch Nails was the headliner, and the opening band was a band I'm not familiar with called Moving Units. Moving Units played about 8 or 9 songs, and I'd say they're a cross between The Cure, Taproot, and Incubus. Not as heavy as Nine Inch Nails, but appropriate enough for the show. For any information on them, their website is http://www.movingunits.net.

They were okay from my standpoint, given the fact I've never heard any of their songs before and never heard of them before the day before the show.

After them was Nine Inch Nails, who used a pair of smoke machines before and during their set. I tell you what, I've seen A LOT of bands, at the Sports Arena and at various places in Toledo, Detroit, Cleveland, Grand Rapids, and Madison, WI, and I'd have to say that Nine Inch Nails is somewhere in the top 6 or 7 I've seen, and definately the top two or three best band I've seen at the Sports Arena being the mighty Pantera and Rob Zombie. They hardly stopped inbetween songs, hardly ever said anything to the crowd except the periodical "Thank You" to the crowd after a song. It was pretty much nonstop from one song to the next, in all about 20 songs they played.

As far what they played, third song in they played "Terrible Lie," about ten songs in they played a pair of songs that had seen some radio play back to back, "Closer" (or as I like to call it, the "I want to fuck you like an animal" song) and "Burn" off of the "Natural Born Killers" soundtrack. They played several songs off of their new CD "With Teeth" as well as several other songs off of arguably their biggest CD "The Downward Spiral". Including "Closer" they also played "March of the Pigs" among others. They ended their over two hour set by playing "Dead Souls" off of 1994's "The Crow" soundtrack, "The Hand That Feeds" off of their "With Teeth" CD, and my personal favorite-"Head Like A Hole". There was no encore set unfortunately, which leads me to my only disappointment of the whole thing. Of the songs left off the set, NIN didn't play "Piggy," "Hurt," off of "The Downward Spiral", or "We're In This Together" from "The Fragile" CD.

The light show throughout was awesome, and the band was very hypered up. Through the whole set Trent Rezner was literally bouncing around like a jackrabbit that just drank ten cups of coffee, going from guitar to guitar, to keyboard, to tamborine, to just throwing his mic stand around like he was trying out for the New York Yankees.
