North / South America (Fall Arena Tour)

Stage setup

This leg incorporated a very elaborate visual display, incorporating a screen behind the stage, light columns, geometric light monitors, a grid of overhead lights, and a sheer silver screen that would drop in front of the stage. Each show began with the screen dropped down in front of the stage and would be raised as the second song in the set began. It would drop down again halfway through the set for "Eraser", "Right Where It Belongs", and "Beside You in Time", with film footage projected onto the screen for the former two songs.

Roy Bennett and Martin Phillips were responsible for the lighting design and stage design respectively. [1] Bennett explained in a 2005 interview that much of the lighting was done using a series of LED lights arranged in "stalactites or stalagmites [formations] to tie in to the album artwork". DLP projectors were also used to project images onto a gauze screen in front of the stage. Using the gauze projection-screen, Phillips, Trent Reznor, and Rob Sheridan devised a "gag" where they projected "a sheet of glass shattering onto a downstage kabuki scrim that would drop as the glass shatters fell. ... We settled on Trent swinging his guitar at the gauze [and] shattering it, but with all the pieces falling up as the [screen] flew out". [1]

North America (Summer Amphitheater Tour)

Stage setup

The lighting for the summer Amphitheater tour was a change from the arena shows' "teeth" panels. A grid of Versa RAY pixel lights arranged in a cage hung over the stage, occasionally moving down and up to display visuals, through which the band may be seen. Seven large, vertical, immobile rectangular panels were in the background akin to the three mobile ones from Fragility v2.0. Each performance on this leg (except 5/26 in George, WA) had a unique poster for sale.
