Nine Inch Nails played its first live show since 2018, opening its U.S. tour with a sold-out concert at Raleigh, N.C.’s Red Hat Amphitheater Thursday night, April 28, 2022.

“I’ve missed being up here,” said Trent Reznor to nearly 6,000 screaming fans midway through the concert. “I’ve missed the connection. Thank you.”

The band was forced to cancel concerts in 2021 due to the pandemic.

In an hour and 45 minute set, NIN played 21 songs spanning over three decades of their catalog.

The tour continues with stops in Atlanta, Franklin, Oregon, Nevada and California before wrapping up in Cleveland.
