During the Dissonance tour in 1995, when Nine Inch Nails opened for David Bowie, Bowie sang “Hurt” in a duet with Reznor, backed by an original melody and beat. This served as the conclusion to the dual act that began each Bowie set.
I was lucky enough to see this last incarnation of NIN twice during it’s last tours (Atlantic City & NYC). I was completely blown away. I went to their next to last show in NYC and was hoping to see Gary Numan. He wasn’t there but they did play “Metal.”
