By Craig Rosen for launch.com on March 1, 2000

Nine Inch Nails will kick off its first U.S. tour in five years -- dubbed Fragility v2.0 -- on April 12 in Cleveland, Ohio. The U.S. trek follows the band's Fragility v1.0, which included dates in Europe and Japan, as well as stops in Australia and New Zealand, where the Trent Reznor-led band headlined the Big Day Out festival.

Fragility v.2.0 will give U.S. fans their first taste of music from NIN's The Fragile in a live setting, will run approximately 10 weeks, and will include 45 dates. The first nine dates of the tour were announced today (March 13); the full itinerary will be announced shortly. Supporting NIN on the tour is A Perfect Circle, a new band featuring Maynard James Keenan of Tool that recently inked a deal with Virgin Records.

The current line-up of Nine Inch Nails features Reznor on vocals, guitar, keyboards; Robin Finck on guitar, vocals, and keyboards; Danny Lohner on bass, guitar, keyboards, and vocals; Charlie Clouser on keyboards, theremin, and vocals; and Jerome Dillon on drums.
