Soundgarden took me right back to high school and my youth last night and I was seriously just elated during their entire set. When “The day I tried to live” started, I went right back to last period Spanish class where I used to sing the lyric “One more time around” to indicate every loop the second hand did on the clock to get through the class so I could get the heck out of there.
2 songs I was really hoping to hear that I didn’t: “Blow up the outside world” and “Room a Thousand Years Wide” but overall I was super happy to finally hear Chris Cornell’s epic voice in person (he sounded fucking amazing), along with Kim Thayil’s wailing guitar, Ben Shepherd’s booming bass and Matt Chamberlain’s awesome percussion even if he wasn’t original member Matt Cameron.  Here’s the setlist:

Searching With My Good Eye Closed 



Spoonman 



Been Away Too Long 



The Day I Tried to Live 



Let Me Drown 



Outshined 



Black Hole Sun 



Jesus Christ Pose 



Like Suicide 



Fell on Black Days 



Superunknown 



A Thousand Days Before 
(with “Rowing” interlude)


Rusty Cage 



Beyond the Wheel

(Photo courtesy of David Seidman)NIN started with the main lights still on and Trent just waltzing onstage by himself and going right into “Somewhat Damaged” which I was not expecting at all b/c the last two times I’ve seen them they started with “Copy of A” and I thought for sure that would be the opener.  It was a pleasant surprise all around; while the setlist certainly did contain a lot of favorites (“March of the Pigs,” “Piggy,” “Wish” “Closer”) it also had a song I’ve never heard them perform (that I can recall) “The Great Destroyer” and apparently this was the tour debut of “The Wretched,” my absolute favorite NIN song, and my twitter and several other internet handle namesakes. I like to think Trent played it for me. ;-) Shz took a lot of video which I’m hoping to look through and post soon but all I can say for my Lucky Number Nine show, this did not disappoint in the least! Soundgarden had a very stripped down show while NIN brought out all the lights and FX.  They don’t really need it though. Trent’s energy is enough to fill the stage. Here’s the set list:



Somewhat Damaged 



1,000,000 



March of the Pigs 



Piggy 



The Frail 
(Tour Debut)


The Wretched 
(Tour Debut)


Closer 



Burn 



Gave Up 



Disappointed 



Find My Way 



The Great Destroyer 



Eraser 



Wish 



Only 



The Hand That Feeds 



Head Like a Hole 


Encore:

The Day the World Went Away 



Hurt

The Lego Movie - Batman’s Song (Untitled Self Portrait)


Yes, this is REAL music!

Dark; 
Brooding
Important; Groundbreaking

Check out the lyrics

DARKNESS
NO PARENTS
CONTINUED DARKNESS
MORE DARKNESS, GET IT? 
THE OPPOSITE OF LIGHT
BLACK HOLE
CURTAINS DRAWN
IN THE BASEMENT
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
BLACKED OUT WINDOWS
OTHER PLACES THAT ARE DARK
BLACK SUIT
BLACK COFFEE

You get it, that’s just the first verse!

DARKNESS
NO PARENTS
SUPER RICH
KINDA MAKES IT BETTER

My new favorite song.
