Watch Nine Inch Nails' Tension Tour Film

Nine Inch Nails has received nearly as much acclaim-- a tremendous amount-- for the incredible visuals as they have the music that comprised their 2013 Tension tour. Reviewing their New York show for FADER, Michael Zelenko raved:

The lighting, arranged by legend Roy Bennett, was jaw-droppingly good, alternately framing the band in light boxes, veiling them in undulating sheets, blanketing them in fireflies, and flooding the crowd without ever drowning out the performance itself. Though there was none of the onstage brutality of NIN’s heady salad days, the group’s lost little luster or energy over the years—and neither had the crowd.

For those who didn't get to witness all that greatness first hand, a consolation prize: Today the band posted Nine Inch Nails Tension 2013, a full-length concert movie filmed last month at the Staples Center in L.A. Not quit a full set, it runs 77-minutes or 14 career spanning songs long. It's still not be the real thing, but it'll at least get you a little closer than another spin of Hesitation Marks Spotify will.
