Trent Reznor was among the masses who watched the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert this past weekend. Like many fans, the show made the Nine Inch Nails singer very emotional.
The clip below was shared to the NIN TikTok. The footage was recorded during the band’s show at the famed Red Rocks Ampitheater in Colorado, which took place the same night as the Hawkins tribute.
Reznor addresses the crowd saying, “Did any of you happen to catch the tribute to Taylor Hawkins today? I thought, ‘I’ll tune in, I knew Taylor. He was a really sweet guy.’ I know a lot of friends were playing, I started watching it, and three hours later I’m still watching. And I’ve got tears in my f—ing eyes. It got me thinking. If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth checking out, ’cause it’s really well done. It’s very touching and sincere.”
Reznor continues, “And it got me thinking about, you know, in my life these days I try to be mindful of what’s happening right now and appreciating what’s happening right now instead of worrying about tomorrow.”
He then adds, with a laugh, “I sound like an old person saying this s—, don’t I?” Then, Reznor concludes, “I am grateful to be sharing this moment with you guys, and it really is a privilege and I’m going to remember this. This is one of those good memories, so thank you.”
