Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden to tour together
Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden have announced that they are to embark on a joint tour, heading out on 23 US dates together throughout July and August.

The tour will begin in Las Vegas on July 19 before finally winding up at the Hollywood Bowl on August 25.

Experimental Sacramento hip-hop group Death Grips, meanwhile, will open up for the two bands on all but two of the dates.

Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden have an interesting history together, since both bands released key albums on the same day in 1994. March 8 saw the release of both Nine Inch Nails' second LP 'The Downward Spiral' and Soundgarden's fourth album 'Superunknown'. The band also shared a bill at Ontario's Molson Park that same year - the last time the bands have played together to date - where NIN frontman Trent Reznor described the rivalry between the bands as "a kind of professional showdown".

Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden will play:

Las Vegas Planet Hollywood (July 19)
Morrison Red Rocks Amphitheatre (21)
Tinley Park First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre (24)
Clarkston DTE Energy Music Theatre (26)

Reznor was also in the news recently after he reacted to an incident at the Grammys by saying "fuck you" to the producers of the event.

Reznor's band joined Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham for the closing slot at the event at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, but their performance was cut short by the closing credits and a commercial break. The medley included Nine Inch Nails' 'Copy Of A' and Queens of the Stone Age's 'My God Is the Sun'.

The singer then took to Twitter following the event, tweeting "Music's biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys."

Footage of the full performance, meanwhile, can be viewed below.
