For live event professionals, the Parnelli Awards are the industry’s version of the Oscars. Earlier this year, the 17th annual Parnelli Awards gala took place at the Anaheim Hilton during The NAMM Show 2018. Since 2001, this prestigious awards ceremony has recognized individual professionals and companies within the entertainment industry for their visual masterpieces.
For the infamous rock/metal band Nine Inch Nails, putting on a great show is more than just about the music. As front man Trent Reznor says in the video below about the tour, “My goal when we’re playing a 70 or 90 minute set is that it’s almost a film where it starts off one way and not only musically, but visually evolves into something that keeps your attention and frames the music in a way that makes it feel like a journey from one place to another. It’s cool to give people an experience.”
