Fans surely knew the day was coming, but Trent Reznor offered a reminder early this morning in Manchester, Tenn., telling the crowd at the three-day Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival that his performance with Nine Inch Nails would be the band's last in America.
"It just dawned on me that this is our last show ever in the United States," Reznor is quoted
by the Associated Press. "Don't be sad. I'll keep going. But I think I'm going to lose my ... mind if I keep doing this, and I have to stop."

Nine Inch Nails' farewell tour with Jane's Addiction, and didn't find the band's vitality remotely diminished, writing that Nine Inch Nails would be going out on a "creative hot streak." With 2007's "Year Zero," and last year's "The Slip," Reznor's ambitions, and aggressiveness, haven't shown any signs of waning. Reznor brings the Nine Inch Nails goodbye tour to Europe later this month.
