Nine Inch Nails played their first live show in more than three years last night, kicking off a tour at the Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh, N.C.

The concert featured many of their classics, plus back-to-back performances of two David Bowie songs which you can watch below, “I’m Afraid of Americans” and “Fashion.”

A complete set list (via is also available below.

Nine Inch Nails toured with Bowie in 1995, the same year frontman Trent Reznor co-produced “I’m Afraid of Americans,” one of the singles from Bowie’s 1997 album, Earthling.

A particularly close bond, both musical and personal, formed between the two singers. Reznor has even credited Bowie with encouraging him on a path to sobriety.

“His music really helped me relate to myself and figure out who I was,” Reznor said to Rolling Stone, shortly after Bowie’s death in 2016. “He was a tremendous inspiration in terms of what was possible, what the role of an entertainer could be – that there are no rules.”

Nine Inch Nails are currently scheduled to perform a few more U.S. concerts before heading overseas in June for a run of shows in the U.K.
