New NIN tour dates at tiny venues announced, nin.com asplodes

If you aren't following us on Twitter, you may not have heard that NIN are playing intimate venues in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles in the near future. Trent tweeted about it and nin.com subsequently crashed.

Lucky for everyone, @she_shines92 thought fast and posted a screenshot of the news on Twitpic, where you can read it now while you wait for nin.com to brush itself off from the stampede.

The text of the update is as follows:

Getting right to the point, we're going to play a handful of shows in NYC, Chicago and LA starting August 22nd. They will be informal affairs in medium to small venues with longer set-lists, possible special guests, cool openers and other surprises. Upon reflection, the NIN/JA tour felt like we had to rush through sets due to a limited allotted set length and many shows were in daylight - it just didn't feel right to end NIN that way. An offer to headline a festival (being announced soon) set the idea in motion to play some FUN shows to end this up with. If we can get it together we'll film these shows, too.In NYC we'll be playing Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5. In Chicago, the Aragon Ballroom. In LA we'll be at The Wiltern, The Henry Fonda, The Palladium and The Echoplex. These should be cool, unusual and unique shows and I hope you come out - this is it.So far, The Horrors will be joining us for some shows in NYC, Mew will be with us at other shows in NYC, Chicago and LA, and perhaps more.Details and ticket info will be announced shortly, so check back.Thanks,Trent
