Nine Inch Nails+Soundgarden
Nostalgia is a dish best served loud, and even sans Death Grips' noise-rap maelstrom, this tour's marquee acts are beasts. In the late 1980s and early 1990s Soundgarden helped invent grunge idolatry, and can guarantee a snoutful of sludgy, telescoping guitars. At the same time and for some years thereafter (and recently), Nine Inch Nails auteur Trent Reznor made industrial pop angst a bankable concept. Expect gratuitous headbanging, tinnitus, and bruise-inducing fist-bumps galore - plus considerably inevitable confusion, among the target market, over the musical stylings of opener Oneohtrix Point Never.
