Nine Inch Nails Confirm First 2013 Tour Dates
There were a lot of Nine Inch Nails fans losing their minds earlier this week when it was revealed that the Trent Reznor-led band was being resurrected this year. Now we’ve got the first two confirmed performances from the reactivated and reconfigured Nine Inch Nails lineup.
Consequence of Sound reports that the band will play the Fuji Rock Festival at Niigata Prefecture, Japan the weekend of July 26-28. While the festival lineup has yet to be revealed, Bjork is also expected to take part. Fans can stay updated on the Fuji Rock Festival’s lineup additions and ticketing details by checking here.

The music weekend will take place Aug. 16-18, with the band playing alongside System of a Down, Volbeat, Deftones, Tenacious D, Biffy Clyro and Enter Shikari among others.

As revealed earlier this week, the reconfigured Nine Inch Nails lineup will feature Reznor and returning instrumentalist Alessandro Cortini and drummer Ilan Rubin alongside former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, King Crimson’s Adrian Belew and Puscifer‘s Josh Eustis.
