NIN's return to Ohio was momentous in many ways

It's been a huge couple days for Nine Inch Nails, their former members and their diehards.

First, on Friday (September 23rd), the industrial-rock titans held Nine Inch Nails Fan Day at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the band's hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and did so with a massive reunion with former members including Chris Vrenna, Danny Lohner, Charlie Clouser and, perhaps most notably, Richard Patrick. The Filter frontman, who played with NIN in the early days and contributed to their 1989 debut, Pretty Hate Machine, has been very outspoken about the acrimonious nature of his split with the band, but recently mended fences with main man Trent Reznor. Patrick even partook in a live Q&A with current and former members at the Rock Hall.

Then yesterday (September 24th), NIN played a triumphant near-hometown show in the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, with core influences Ministry and Nitzer Ebb opening, and the aforementioned alums joined for a very special six-song encore. The six songs included a first-time-every cover of Filter's 1995 hit "Hey Man, Nice Shot," with Patrick taking on lead vocals. Watch video of the performance and the Q&A above and below.

Due to inductee limitations, Clouser and Patrick were not eligible to be inducted into the Rock Hall with NIN in 2020.
