Self Destruct Warm Up Tour Setlists

Self Destruct Tour Setlists

Typical Setlist
Pinion
Terrible Lie ("What do you think you're for." sample used after Terrible Lie)
Sin
March Of The Pigs
Something I Can Never Have
Closer
Reptile
Wish
Suck
The Only Time
Get Down Make Love
Down In It
Big Man With A Gun
Head Like A Hole
encore break
Dead Souls TR: sings "God damn this noise inside my head" at the end of Dead Souls
Help Me I Am In Hell
Happiness in Slavery

This setlist remained unchanged throughout the tour, at least for known recordings.  Of the 43 shows, 26 were recorded and circulated.  All setlists are taken from these actual recordings apart from a couple of personal accounts, such as my trigonometry notebook and alt.music.nin.  Without there being discussion boards back in 1994, it's hard to tell where any recordings were truly made.  The only shows with different setlists, apart from dropped songs, were the Woodstock show and the show before it in Fairfax.  Therefore, finding key characteristics of each show are essential in order to identify and separate recordings.  For this tour, shows were just about 80 minutes in length which is the amount of time that fits on a compact disc.  Silver pressed bootlegs for this tour usually contain the entire show, but sometimes end after Head Like a Hole.

From the text file that came with the torrent: This is centre stage shot, with no obstructions. According to tour references it was A and V recorded by the crew, which would explain why its over everyone's heads but NOT shot from the balcony! (Knowing the Forum as a venue Id say it was shot from the mixing desk area from a tripod.)  Sound is audience rather than soundboard, which is a shame! The camera is steady, though it has a slightly annoying autofocus to it, which means after every blast of lights and strobes it takes a second to refocus. I got this show from Camden Market on VHS a dozen or so years ago, and only recently converted it to DVD using a standalone recorder, so its not crystal clear, but well worth adding to your collection!

This soundboard show is available on thee different silver pressed bootlegs.  "Hammering It Home" and "Shallow Grave" (Insect Records) are clones.  "Pure as Fuck" is the same recording with different track breaks.  They are mislabeled as 5/25/94.  The correct date for all of them is 5/26/94 Duration 78:30

"Hammering it Home"   "Shallow Grave"        "Pure as Fuck"
                            

Head Like a Hole and Big Man With a Gun were used in "A Mix of All That Was"

The video I have of this show contains the soundboard audio and has the entire show.  This show is certainly from May 26, 1994 as evidenced by the date on the video camera.  The time and date displayed in video cameras are always correct.

This is a good audience shot from the balcony with very good sound quality.   Trent gets mad at his keyboard and pours a bottle of water on it during Closer.  The filmer roams the venue for a few minutes after the show.  Scary Monsters played again afterwards.

Good audience recording, edited version made it's way onto a silver pressed bootleg.  56:46   I have 2 versions of this recording.  The first is an mp3 rip of "Terrible Live Lie" which cuts The Only Time and Head Like a Hole.  The second is a FLAC copy that has those tracks but is missing Down In It and Closer.  It doesn't make any sense since the entire show could have fit onto a CD.

This show was the last time Nine Inch Nails played Big Man with a Gun.

This is probably the best video recording of this leg of the tour.  It's almost entirely close-ups.  The sound is very good.

This may very well have been one of the greatest concerts ever.  The lineup at this festival included Marilyn Manson, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Reverend Horton Heat, You Am I, Nine Inch Nails, and Soundgarden.  (That makes two fake reverends at one show!) 

Decent audience recording of NIN, unknown lineage, ever present hissing and some crowd chatter.

This was the first time Burn was ever played.  Ruiner had been played at least once during the warm up tour.  This was also the first time the setlist had any variation, no doubt to get ready for Woodstock two days later. 

Video of this show is remarkable bad.  It is dark, murky, jumpy, and usually out of focus, however it has very good audio.  I have a separate FLAC audio which seems to be from this video although it is slightly longer at the beginning.  Audio duration 86:24.

Soundboard of this show is available on a whole bunch of silver pressed bootlegs but all are edited since the show was just over 83 minutes and only 80 minutes fit on a CD..  "When the Whip Comes Down" (duration 75:41) has the beginning of Reptile cut and "Closer" (duration 79:41) is missing Trent talking before Burn.  I have not tracked down any others since the Pay Per View broadcast is available on DVD. 

"When The Whip 
Comes Down"          "Closer"         "Hellbound"        "Mudpigs"      "Mudstock"   "Painful Convictions"    "Reptile"   "Reznor Sharp"     
 
                                

    "Scratches"   "Woodstock 94"      "Nothing is Next"
