Nine Inch Nails played their first live show since 2018 Thursday night in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the set included a pair of David Bowie covers.

In addition to a performance of Bowie’s 1997 song “I’m Afraid of Americans,” the video for which co-starred Trent Reznor, the concert also featured the live debut of NIN’s rendition of the 1980 Scary Monsters tune, “Fashion.”

Reznor previously covered “Fashion” in 2021 for a Bowie tribute livestream concert. That performance also featured NIN’s Atticus Ross, and Reznor’s wife and How to Destroy Angels band mate, Mariqueen Maandig Reznor.

Nine Inch Nails’ tour continues this weekend at the Shaky Knees festival in Atlanta.
