NIN Blitzkriegs the Henry Fonda Theater with Amazing Setlist and Guest Star

At last night's rescheduled Wave Goodbye performance at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, NIN put on a truly epic show featuring a number of surprise guest artists, reportedly including Gary Numan (people -- for the love of god -- his last name is spelled Numan, not Neuman or Newman), Mike Garson (who played piano for David Bowie and on The Fragile), Eric Avery of Jane's Addiction, Greg Puciato from Dillinger Escape Plan, opening act Health (joining NIN, Numan, and Avery for a cover of Gang of Four's Anthrax, "one of the most unique and interesting songs of its time"), and none other than prodigal son Danny Lohner. The historic event is being discussed here, there and everywhere. Look hard enough and you might find audio. To say the least, surely the show was more than enough to appease even the most disgruntled concertgoer affected by the rescheduling.

Thanks to charles lee for writing in and to everyone else for posting about it online. This is a great, although maybe bittersweet, time to be a NIN fan.
