The final show of Nine Inch Nails as a live, touring entity was also the longest NIN show ever, running over three and a half hours with a 37 song set list.

Featured guests included avant garde pianist Mike Garson, Gary Numan, Atticus Ross, Dave Navarro (who originally performed on a remix version of "Piggy" 15 years ago and performed that version tonight), and the whole of Dillinger Escape Plan (who demolished a significant portion of their gear).

Before "The Day The World Went Away," Reznor thanked his band and various crew, then stopped the opening of the song twice to thank more crew in different parts of the venue.

And I hung out in line with some filmmakers/actors/editors. The one guy I spent a lot of time talking to (about The Prisoner, among other things) was familiar looking to me and his name was familiar, but I couldn't place him. With the amount of TV I watch, it could have been from any number of shows he'd mentioned having done recently. Turns out, it was because he was Kyle from three seasons of Roswell.
