Nine Inch Nails footage from Big Day Out 2000!

 

The legendary Trent Reznor is in top form in this now vintage set filled with classics. More bands should have this much energy and passion when they play live.  It's not the whole set, but it's 7 amazing tracks. The Channel V footage aired on March 4th & 5th, 2000 and were filmed at the Big Day Out in Sydney, Australia.
