Cabaret Metro (Chicago)

General Comment

This date used to be said as a support to Jesus and Mary Chain. This is of course wrong for various reasons :

  1. why a NIN promo on newspaper if this is a Jesus and Mary Chain show
  2. Jesus and Mary Chain are at Vancouver for a second night show !
  3. NIN can't have a 1 hour show as support. This is mostly 30 to 40 min. This is for example why Something I Can Never Have could be played
  4. Ticket is clear : this is a NIN show !
