The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
They kicked off their Tension 2013 tour over the weekend in St. Paul, MN, and we’re revving up for them to take over St. Louis Tuesday. Nine Inch Nails’ first North American Tour in years in support of their new album Hesitation Marks is on. With the new tour comes some more onstage firepower. People won’t just be blown away by the amazing stage show with a ton of interactive and moving screens and laser light shows, but there will also be some new faces and voices on stage. Bassist Pino Palladino has signed on for the tour as has backup singers Sharlotte Gibson and Lisa Fischer. A 12-second clip posted to front man Trent Reznor’s Instagram shows a bit of the onstage happenings during a live performance. There may be some tickets still available for Tuesday show at the Chaifetz Arena.
They wanna play
More on the possibility of Gwar playing a future Super Bowl Halftime Show—the band has now come out and said they want to play the show. It started as an official petition on the White House created website Change.org. Fans put together a petition that has garnered tens of thousands of signatures. Now the band is ready to put in a bid. Front man Oderus Urungus says Gwar enjoys submitting us pathetic humans to the tortures acts of having groups like the Black Eyed Peas or Bruno Mars perform at halftime, but he says he supports the petition to get Gwar on stage but he wants it to go a bit further. Oderus says that players should be stripped naked, be blindfolded and play with battle axes and the field should be littered with land mines and random harpoons should be hurled by random whalers in the crowd. That may actually get me to watch a game!
