Nine Inch Nails have announced they’ll return to the UK for a pair of gigs at Cornwall’s the Eden Project this summer.

The industrial rock pioneers, led by Trent Reznor, will play two dates at the tourist attraction on June 17 and 18, which comes mid-way through the band’s previously announced US tour.

But with the UK dates occurring a mere week before Glastonbury, fans have inevitably speculated that the band could potentially hang around for their first performance at Worthy Farm since 2000.

Tickets for the Eden Project shows are available via a Nine Inch Nails presale which kicks off today (February 14) at 10am. Eden Project members can buy tickets on Wednesday (February 16) from 10am, before a general sale begins on Friday (February 18) at the same time.

The band’s last UK dates took place in 2018, when they played the Meltdown Festival at the Royal Festival Hall and a follow up date at the Royal Albert Hall.

They were previously set to play a string of US shows in 2021, but subsequently cancelled all of their scheduled live performances for that year due to ongoing coronavirus concerns.

“When originally planned, these shows were intended to be a cathartic and celebratory return to live music,” the group wrote in a statement at the time. “However, with each passing day it’s becoming more apparent we’re not at that place yet.”

Their last release came in 2020’s ‘Ghosts V: Together’ and ‘Ghosts VI: Locusts’, their tenth and eleventh albums respectively.
