Reznor also spoke about their upcoming North American arena tour, which kicks off in St. Paul, MN on September 28, explaining that the band will ditch the current stage set-up they’re using for the festival shows and construct something completely different. Something Reznor admitted was a little crazy.

“The fact that we’re doing all this only for these few shows, and then we have to do it over again, throwing all this out to do a completely new thing, with new things that won’t work,” he said. “That feels a little insane.”
