The first Nine Inch Nails tour in support the double album, The Fragile. This tour can be split up into Fragility 1999 (the European dates) and Fragility 2000 (the Japanese, Australian, and New Zealand dates). Tour shirts don't list all of Fragility v1.0's dates on them (this is where the 1999/2000 separation comes in) but the official site (www.nin.com) groups all these dates together as Fragility v1.0 (v2.0 is the North American tour that started in April of 2000). The opening act for the European dates (1 through 11 below) was Atari Teenage Riot. For the Australian and New Zealand tour dates (17 through 22), NIN played as part of the Big Day Out music festival. This tour was NIN's first to include shows in Japan. There is some archived footage from this tour at NIN's website. The band for this tour was:

Though the set list varied on certain nights (and was noteably shorter for the festival performances on the Big Day Out dates), what was played generally went something like this:

  1. Pinion
  2. Somewhat Damaged
  3. Terrible Lie
  4. Sin
  5. March of the Pigs
  6. Piggy
  7. The Frail
  8. The Wretched
  9. No, You Don't
  10. Gave Up
  11. La Mer
  12. The Great Below
  13. The Way Out Is Through
  14. Wish
  15. Into The Void
  16. Down In It
  17. Head Like A Hole

  18. The Day The World Went Away
  19. Starfuckers Inc.
  20. Closer
  21. Hurt
The show on stage included giant LCD screens displaying various imagery during the songs and some of the equipment destroying antics NIN was known for on the self destruct tour in 1994 (though considerably less this time around).
