The extension of Nine Inch Nails’ farewell tour and Paul McCartney’s new non-tour plans top the daily tour recap for July 8, as compiled by TicketNews.
Despite Trent Reznor’s frequent reassurances that Nine Inch Nails was going on a touring hiatus after its summer dates in the U.S. and Europe, the industrial band’s frontman has announced plans for a second farewell tour that will hit small clubs in three U.S. cities later this year. Whether this will be NIN’s final farewell tour remains to be seen….
Paul McCartney is still churning out the summer concert dates, though he’s still not calling his compact August itinerary a “tour.” Blues rockers The Black Crowes are calling their 2009 plans a tour, though, and they just added a nearly 30-date extension to their calendar. Interestingly, Panic at the Disco will also tour this summer, despite the fact that two of the band’s members just quit, leaving behind only a singer and a drummer.
Those are the complete concert and tour reports for this Wednesday, but if that’s not enough, you can also eyeball a few of the day’s other itinerary updates in brief below:
