NIN's 'Last Show Ever' in United States?

Nine Inch Nails performed Saturday at Tennessee's annual Bonnaroo Festival -- and band leader Trent Reznor shared a big announcement from the stage: that the show would be NIN's last on U.S. soil.

"It just dawned on me that this is our last show ever in the United States," the Associated Press quoted Reznor as saying. "Don't be sad. I'll keep going. But I think I'm going to lose my ... mind if I keep doing this, and I have to stop." Reznor, NIN's only constant member since its inception in the late 1980s, has been recording, releasing new music and touring almost non-stop since 2005.

Reznor's remarks shouldn't come as too much of a shock; the musician announced in December that the group's just-completed North American outing, dubbed the "Wave Goodbye" tour, would be its last for the "foreseeable future." Co-headlining with Jane's Addiction, they're now slated to play a series of shows in Europe and Asia that end in August (note: click on the image above for more information on the tour).

Still to this day, the band's hit "Closer"gets to me every time. WARNING: uncensored video version here.
