11/07/2021: Downloads Disabled For The Time Being. . .

Last week we had gotten an email from our host that the archive was 'storing' files in our download directory and I was hit with a breach in the terms of use by the host. Even though going through the agreement, each file is linked to an HTML of this site and actively used. Not to mention we do not allow hotlinking for any of our files.

I have been at the same host for over 11 years. Paid the bill on time and made sure every file was properly linked to a physical page of the site. This archive started off with almost 600GB worth of data and not a peep... For 11 years. Slowly, the amount of live recordings preserved went up to 1.8 TB. If you have tried to download a recording in the last week. This is why. They have disabled the downloads folder and made it into an 'storage/archive solution' option. So at this time there are no downloads available on the NIN Live Archive. We are working on trying to find a solution with our host provider as well as additional options to possibly migrate the archive. I am extremely gutted and hopefully we will find an answer soon. I will update on our Twitter/Instagram. Thank you for your patience during this time. I knew this day would come at some point. I was just hoping by now data would be affordable enough where this would not have to get to this. As I really like the host I have now.

Soon. . .

10/19/2020: Welcome to the Nine Inch Nails Live Archive:

Welcome to the small corner of the internet that pertains to everything Nine Inch Nails' live! From here, you can browse and download almost 1,100 different audio recordings from 642 concerts, as well as over 310 video recordings dating all the way back to 1988. This includes other performances from Trent's related acts as well. To keep up to date with what is being added, check the archive updates column to the right on this page. I also have social media accounts to help make people more aware of this project in order to unsurface recordings that are not here on the archive. You can follow the archive on many of the standard sites here. In order to browse the archives, click the "NIN LIVE ARCHIVES" tab above to browse each year that includes every tour. Click on the "NIN DRIVE" tab if you wish to download everything that has been added to the archive in audio format thus far (v3.0 is the most recent, more updates to follow).

I am always looking to add more recordings to the archive. Any source is welcome to the archive (including an extra source for shows that have recordings available!). I am able to transfer just about any sort of media you can think of. DAT, MD, CD, Cassette, Microcassette MiniDV, HDV, VHS etc. etc. Nothing is off limits. This site is here to preserve all of Nine Inch Nails' performances over the years and I would love to gather anything possible. This also includes any setlists, ticket stubs, posters that aren't already here on the website. Please get in contact or send me a message on one of the other social media sites. I would love to chat!

Take a look around! Hope you enjoy listening back to a show you have seen in the past. A lot of great stuff in here.

05/21/2020: Download The Live Cold And Black And Infinite 2018 Video:

With the recent update on nin.com from TR that they did have a fall tour planned this year but has been cancelled due to COVID-19, we all have been a little down. Silver lining about all of that is that it would be my guess that those same cities will be on the next tour in 2021 of rescheduled dates. Which means you have a full year to make plans! Let's all throw some positive vibes out there! I am feeling it will happen!

In that same email/update, Trent posted a video of a fan edited Live Cold and Black And Infinite 2018 video from user, Videotape, on YouTube. Using multiple video sources and ToolDVN's audio recordings from the run in New Orleans 2018 (which can be downloaded on the archive). They have released an amazing representation of the tour and it's asthetic... dark, gritty and raw. I was able to reach out to videotape to get the finished video and host it on the archive for your downloading pleasure and preservation. Most of the time it's very hard to get hold of users on YouTube, so I am grateful that videotape answered my call! Trent asked, "how the fuck did you pull this off?" We've got a great fanbase who knows how to tape shows! Looking forward to 2021 and seeing some shows with all of you again. In the meantime, below you can watch the performance on YouTube or click the download link to download the 3GB video file! More coming on the archive. I hope to have some special uncirculated recordings coming in the next few weeks. Enjoy.

Need Your Help NIN Fans:

NIN fans, I need some help from you!! I am looking for any ticket stub/poster/setlist sheet from any past Nine Inch Nails shows! A lot of you have been awesome already and sent me in a few hundred concert stubs to add to the archive, THANK YOU! But obviously, there are still a lot to acquire! Check the date in the archive to see if there is a stub, if not, please send it over! Photos or scans are totally fine! As usual, always looking for new recordings as well!
