Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has postponed the band’s August 8 concert at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. The performance has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 9, 2008.
A recurring throat ailment has left the rocker unable to perform. NIN recently postponed an August 2 concert in Minneapolis, MN, due to the same illness.
Deerhunter was scheduled to open for NIN’s Worcester performance.
In a message posted on NIN.com, Reznor expressed his regrets about the postponement. “I never take postponing a show lightly, and if there were any possible way I could pull this off, I would,” Reznor wrote. “This is a very frustrating and maddening situation for me, and I appreciate your understanding.”
All tickets purchased for the August 8 concert will be honored on the new date. For those unable to attend the rescheduled date of November 9, a refund will be available at the original point of purchase.
NIN started its Lights In The Sky 2008 summer tour on July 25 and has North American shows booked through September 6. The tour will venture south of the border into Mexico in October and then extends to include five South American dates. Trent Reznor handpicked supporting acts — including Crystal Castles; Deerhunter; and Does It Offend You, Yeah? — to accompany NIN on various legs of the tour.
