"Fragility" tour garnered rave reviews, including Melody Maker?s review of the London date, which stated, "Pretty great machine...there?s no one who uses the word f*ck quite like Trent Reznor...Reznor is a law unto himself...Reznor has the mystique of a dark angel, a presence that permeates every awe-filled onlooker."

The footage for the special has been culled from shows in Barcelona, Milan, Munich, Vienna, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, Dusseldorf, Tilburg and London, and was shot by both fans - picked randomly from the crowd - and professional cameramen.

In their review of the Melbourne show, Rolling Stone magazine noted, "?Trent Reznor, by sheer force of will, delivered the event?s best set?musically ferocious and personally magnetic?transcendent."

The band plans to announce their U.S. tour shortly. Watch the band?s official website ? www.nin.com ? for tour dates and more.
