And in the end, the love you take...

#NINLast night, in front of a few thousand diehard fans at the Wiltern Theatre in LA, Nine Inch Nails wrapped up their final live show in grand fashion by playing through a blistering 37 song setlist that lasted over three hours. Guests at the show included Mike Garson on the piano, Gary Numan, Atticus Ross, Dave Navarro and The Dillinger Escape Plan. On Twitter, #NIN became the number one trending topic during the evening as thousands, if not almost millions of fans across the world shared their favorite NIN moments over the last 20 years. It was truly a great night to be a NIN fan.

If you were at the show, ETS's tour journal entry is still wide open and could use all of the memories from those in attendance. Head here and remember, you don't have to be a member of the board to post in the journal. If you weren't at the show, SPIN.com has an article/review of the show along with a few pictures.

Now, the future. There have been various articles around the internet (and hopefully they've all been entered into our archives) where Trent has stated that although he is done touring, this does not mean that he is done making music. If there's a moment in history that this mirrors, it would be The Beatles making the decision to stop playing live. Although the Fab Four finished touring after Revolver was released, they still went on to record classic albums like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles and Abbey Road among others along with each member expanding and furthering their solo careers.

What am I getting at here? There's still a lot of story to be told in the great big, epic book of Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails. We'll keep everyone updated on what's going to happen next as soon as the news breaks. It's still a great time to be a NIN fan!
