Nine Inch Nails kicked off their highly anticipated “Cold and Black and Infinite Tour” at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday night. Fans in attendance were treated to something truly special, as the band chose to open the set by playing their Grammy-winning 1992 EP, Broken, in full for the first time ever.

As such, NIN played “Happiness in Slavery” for the first time in 23 years. Other Broken tracks, including their cover of Adam and the Ants’ “Physical” and “Last” were performed live for the first time since 2009.
