Watch A Clip Of The Nine Inch Nails “Austin City Limits” Performance

“Austin City Limits” announced a special broadcast featuring Nine Inch Nails, who are making a rare television appearance in the full-hour performance. The new episode premieres on April 5th as a preview of “ACL”‘s 40th Anniversary Season.

The NIN show featured ten songs. It will encore during the PBS music series Season 40, which is launching in the fall of 2014.

“ACL” airs weekly on PBS stations nationwide. Full episodes are available online immediately after the initial broadcast.

Trent Reznor said: “We didn’t want to make ‘ACL’ a NIN show. We wanted to be out of our element. I have a lot of respect for ‘ACL’ and I wanted us to be a guest on their show, not to convert their show into our concert. It was unusual to perform in that environment, and ended up being one of the best shows I think we played.”

KISS WILL NOT PERFORM AT ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME CEREMONY

Kiss officially announced over the weekend they will not perform in any form at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in April.

After not being able to agree with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on which lineup to perform and celebrate with, the band has pulled out of performing altogether.

Read the statement from the band here:

“Out of respect, Ace and Peter’s recent statements demand a quick response to you, our fans.

Our intention was to celebrate the entire history of KISS and give credit to all members including long time present members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, and additionally Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr all who have made this band what it is, regardless of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s point of view.

Although KISS has moved forward far longer without them, Ace and Peter are at the very foundation of what we have built and this would all be impossible had they not been a part of it in the beginning.

It is over 13 years since the original lineup has played together in make-up and we believe the memory of those times would not be enhanced. Contrary to claims made through the media we have never refused to play with Ace and Peter.

We have spent 40 years dedicated to building KISS without quitting or wavering as the band has moved forward with huge tours and platinum albums through different important lineups for forty years, to this day.

KISS has always been a band unlike any other. That is why we started KISS. That is why we continue KISS. Being unlike other bands also means making choices and decisions unlike other bands.

This is understandably an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone.

To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play in any line-up and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

We are excited and are looking forward to seeing you all on the KISS 40th Anniversary worldwide tour.”
