JEORDIE WHITE | BASE TENDENCIES
Dates for the summer leg of Nine Inch Nails' tour, beginning May 26th at the Gorge Ampitheatre in George, WA, have been posted on nin.com's Performance page, along with ticketing information.
Remember Headband, the Jeordie/QOTSA/Amen collaboration which never quite got off the ground? The Angry Brigade over at Amen's refusemusicstore.com has now made available for download mp3's of unreleased Headband tracks, which were recorded during 2003 rehearsals. You have to be a member to have access to the downloads and options are $15.00 for a three month membership or $45 for a 12 month membership. In addition to Jeordie, Headband features Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri (QOTSA), Shannon Larkin (Amen, Godsmack) and Casey Chaos (Amen). Thanks to Richard K. for the link.
The NIN Live and Promo galleries have been updated. Thanks to melodic_soundz for the live shots.
Per an announcement this morning on nin.com, tonight's show in Ottawa is postponed until further notice. More information will be posted in the next few days.
An interview from yesterday's Ottawa Citizen has been added to the Press page. Those of you who still don't believe Jeordie's not on myspace or are convinced you are communicating with him in any way on the internet though you've never even met him, please take note.
For anyone who didn't see the announcement yesterday on nin.com, the Portland, ME show has been rescheduled to June 21st. All tickets for the cancelled performance will be honored for the new date.
This month's Rag Magazine features a great new interview with Jeordie. Click here and go to page 32 to read it. Thanks to randomgirlxxx73 for the heads up.
[9:01 a.m.] Due to ongoing illness, tonight's show in Portland, ME has been cancelled. According nin.com, the date will be rescheduled as a part of NIN's upcoming summer tour and Ticketmaster currently shows a date of June 1st. Tickets for tonight's show will be honored for the new performance.
[8:50 a.m.] Due to illness, tonight's show at the Mullins Center in Amherst, MA is postponed until Friday, March 10th. Tickets for tonight's show will be honored for the rescheduled date. No info yet regarding refunds.
[8:57 a.m.] According to a report in today's Billboard, NIN has been booked to play the Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge Ampitheatre in George, WA (about midway between Seattle and Spokane)on May 26th. Tickets go on sale on March 4th through Ticketmaster. NIN are also heavily rumored to be playing this year's Lollapalooza festival which will be held in Chicago August 4-6.
A rather amusing interview that Jeordie and Aaron did with Nardwuar when NIN stopped in Vancouver a few months ago is now available in mp3 format at this location. Also, I have added a photo from the Green Bay show to the Live gallery. Thanks to Rachel Thurman for the submission.
[8:41 a.m.] If you won't be able to catch NIN on this leg of the tour, you may still have another chance this summer. In a chat conducted via The Spiral fanclub on Friday evening, Trent stated that the band will take to the road once again over the summer, playing outdoor ampitheatres in major U.S. markets. No specific dates are available yet.
[1:00 p.m.] After a well deserved two month break, Jeordie will be hitting the road again later this week with Nine Inch Nails. Starting in Champaign, IL on Friday, February 10th, this tour will cover mostly the secondary markets, wrapping things up April 1st in Las Vegas, NV. Word is that the set list will be a little different this time out, possibly including some stuff yet to be played live. Be sure to check out the Tour Dates page for the complete tour itinerary and ticket information. For those of you going to any of these shows, I will be looking for in-depth reviews and good quality photos to add to the site. You can find contact information for the site here.
It wasn't all playtime for Jeordie during the last two months, however. Chris Goss confirms in an interview published today on billboard.com that he and Jeordie spent some time last week working on material for Goon Moon's debut album. Goon Moon's previously released EP, "I Got a Brand New Egg Layin' Machine" was thrown together at the last minute "just to plant a seed", Goss says, and indicates that there will be more work to come on the full length album, which does not yet have a projected release date. Go here to read the full interview.
[8:22 a.m.] This isn't exactly news on Jeordie, but I feel compelled to mention it anyway because I was so blown away by this artist's performance opening for Nine Inch Nails in San Diego back in November. NIN's official website has now confirmed that Saul Williams will be opening for NIN's upcoming tour from February 27th through April 1st. Some of you will recall that NIN performed a couple of songs with Saul during Voodoo Festival in New Orleans a few months back. You can find out more about Saul by going to his official website. The opener(s) for the first half of the tour will be announced in the next couple of days.
[9:08 a.m.] Jeordie, along with current NIN drummer Josh Freese, attended the premier of the animated film "Live Freaky Die Freaky!" last night in Los Angeles. As some of you may recall, both Jeordie and Josh were on board to lend their voices to the project but subsequently had to withdraw due to touring commitments with A Perfect Circle. The film, directed by John Roecker and produced by Rancid's Tim Armstrong, will hold late night screenings in select cities on January 27 and 28 and will be available on DVD on January 31. For more information, check out the film's official website.
[8:28 a.m.] Another new tour date has been confirmed: NIN will be performing at the Aladdin Theatre in Las Vegas on 4.1.06. Ticket info is TBA.
The NIN Live gallery has been updated with three photos.
[4:01 p.m.] NIN continues to add to their tour schedule, one date at a time. The newest date has them playing the Centurytel Center in Bossier City, LA on 3.25.06. Ticket info is TBA.
[12:38 p.m.] NIN has updated their tour itinerary with a newly announced date at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ on 3.11.06. Tickets go on sale through all Ticketmaster outlets at 10:00 a.m. on 1.14.06.
