NEW YORK (Billboard) - Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor said Tuesday the band will play a final "handful of shows" in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles beginning August 22.

While NIN originally planned to stop performing in the U.S. for good after the tour with Jane's Addiction that wrapped June 12, Reznor wrote in a post on the band's website that "the NIN/JA tour felt like we had to rush through sets due to a limited allotted set length and many shows were in daylight -- it just didn't feel right to end NIN that way." NIN also has dates scheduled across Europe and Asia through August 15.

No dates have been announced for the extended tour, but Reznor did reveal that the New York shows will be at Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall and Terminal 5, all smaller club venues. The Chicago show will be at the Aragon Ballroom, while Los Angeles stops will include The Wiltern, The Henry Fonda, The Palladium and The Echoplex. Supporting acts will include the Horrors and Mew, and "possible special guests." Reznor also said he intends longer set lists for the shows than were planned for the NIN/JA tour.

The post also announced that NIN will be a headline act at Toronto's Virgin Fest, with dates to be announced shortly.
