Nine Inch Nails recently canceled a series of June dates in Russia and Eastern Europe, including gigs in St. Petersburg on June 13th, Moscow on the 15th, Kiev on the 17th and Budapest on June 19th, according to Antiquiet. No official reason was given for the Trent Reznor-led act scrapping the shows, but there is speculation that Nine Inch Nails might have been offered a headlining slot at Tennessee’s massive Bonnaroo Festival, which takes place between June 12th and 15th.
- The official lineup for Bonnaroo is scheduled to be unveiled on Wednesday (February 19th).
- Nine Inch Nails begins a heavy touring schedule on March 1st in Thailand, and will spend most of the spring in Australia, New Zealand, South America and Europe. More North American dates are in the works as well.
- The latest Nine Inch Nails album, Hesitation Marks, came out last September after Reznor put the group on hiatus for five years.
- Reznor recently alluded to Rolling Stone that he was working on a new project that could arrive later this year, although he declined to provide further information about it.
- He and collaborator Atticus Ross are also composing the score for Gone Girl, the new thriller from director David Fincher. This is the third Fincher film in a row that the pair have scored, with their work on The Social Network in 2010 winning them a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
