During the 2008 Lights In The Sky tour we began an open camera policy for stills and video during all NIN shows, inviting fans to capture the events with anything from a cell phone to a hi-def video camera. The results have been overwhelming, filling our own galleries with thousands of images and videos from every show, and inspiring a number of ambitious fansourced video projects within the NIN community. Some of those projects are starting to surface now, and we couldn't be happier with the way the fans have organized themselves and created some truly impressive work.

On the recent Wave Goodbye tour, we were unable to professionally film the band's performance of The Downward Spiral at Webster Hall, due to exorbitant fees requested by the LiveNation venue. Our open camera policy, however, remained in tact, and as soon as the show ended fans took matters into their own hands, organizing online to track down everyone who had filmed HD footage of the show. Now, only two months later, the group has released a polished, edited, downloadable DVD of the full Downward Spiral performance from Webster Hall. The entire thing has been recorded, edited, and distributed entirely by fans, and it's the latest example of the amazing things fans will do when their creativity isn't limited by outdated, misguided restrictions.

You can watch "The Downward Spiral: Live" in HD on this YouTube playlist. You can download it via torrent as a burnable DVD or an iPod/iPhone-friendly video from this page (click the question mark link on that page if you're new to downloading with torrents).

We filmed all of the other final Wave Goodbye shows professionally, and you can expect to see that footage surface in some form or another in the future. In the meantime, we appreciate the efforts of The NIN Hotline, This One Is On Us, and everyone else who helped to immortalize the Webster Hall performance.

Don't you see, Trent?

You set the benchmark for the wave of the future.

MY only negative comment is that I missed seeing you perform TDS live in LA on September 2nd, which was my 27th birthday.

Still, you inspire me.

And congrats to you and your wife!

And to the rest of the NIN team (especially the performing team and the visual team (Rob) thank you. You are all amazing!)

thanks for all who contribute to this, an awesome memory of an awesome show now in awesome format to live forever on my HD.

I was fortunate enough to be there myself but I'm not much of a video guy, here is what I have to offer from that show.

This is awesome. Thanks to everyone involved.

One question, though- the open camera policy enabled high-definition video, but how did we get the audio?

Same way we've always been able to get audio quality really. The audio tapers out there seem to know their equipment really well, and are able to get the best out of the situation, and the audio mixer is really good at optimising those recordings.

Watching it now. It's terrific and I can't thank those involved enough. Nice work!

 

10/23/09 5:12 PM

Yay!!! I was unable to attend because I love Nine Inch Nails but it is not a 500 dollar kind of love. So cool for posting this.

 

10/23/09 6:15 PM

Loved this show...lucky to have been there...so happy this live footage was put together so I can experience it again, smiling smiley

You and everyone else involved have done and are doing something truly great that will be appreciated and admired by old and new fans. Not just of NIN, but of other bands too. 15 years ago, when people were selling bootleg copies of concerts, no one would have seen something like this happen.

Thank you so much for making something great (especially with the varied degrees of footage you had to work with), and know that we REALLY appreciate it. Not just those of us that were there. (although my wife and I have an amazing keepsake of that show now).

Cheers,

J

I look forward to watching this in its entirety on a big screen. Thanks to everyone who put in all the long, tedious hours that these kinds of editing-intensive projects involve. Much appreciation for your dedication! thumbs up

 

10/23/09 5:52 PM

Thank you.

Just thank you.

That's all I can think to say. Even beyond the technical aspects of this (and other fan-based projects), thank you to all involved for the extreme generosity in making this available to literally thousands of total strangers, for the low, low cost of $0.

And, it looks amazing smiling bouncing smiley !!!

 

10/23/09 6:12 PM

Downloading, downloading! smiling smiley
Your camera policy was deeeeeeeeee best! Thanks all! grinning smiley
