Mexico tourdate rumours.

Reactor 105, a Mexican radio station, are apparently "confirming" a June 2nd Nine Inch Nails tourdate at the Palacio de los Deportes. Nothing is confirmed until it appears on nin.com, but several people have been citing the station as the most important rock radio station in Mexico. Are these rumours carefully crafted pieces of hype? Hey, who knows. At this stage, we can only speculate.

Thanks to everyone who sent this news in.

spuente sends a link to a news article on what looks like a Spanish television station called Esmas, part of which reads:

"MEXICO CITY, Mexico February 9, 2005 - The American group Nine Inch Nails (NIN), a popular industrial rock group, will perform for the first time in this capital on June 2, after 15 years of waiting by its fans. The band led by the musician Trent Reznor will arrive at the Sports Palace to promote his most recent CD With Teeth, that will be on sale in March and that is considered one of the most anticipated rock albums of 2005, six years after finishing The Fragile. Sources near the concert promoters bringing the band to Mexico, a radio station, some Internet websites and the official page of the group have confirmed the visit of the group known for songs like "Closer". On NIN's website, Reznor days ago assured his fans that yes the tour would arrive at Mexico, not naming a specific date."
