Nine Inch Nails played not one, but two headlining sets at the Boston Calling festival this past weekend.

In addition to their previously announced performance on Friday, Trent Reznor and company took the stage again on Saturday to fill in for The Strokes, who had to cancel their headlining set to due a positive COVID-19 case.

Fans who caught both NIN sets got to experience two different shows, as the band varied the set list for each night.

In filling in for The Strokes, Nine Inch Nails ended up taking the place of two-thirds of the originally announced 2022 Boston Calling headliners. Last month, it was announced that NIN would be performing in place of Foo Fighters, who canceled all of their tour dates following the unexpected death of drummer Taylor Hawkins in March.

The third announced headliner, Metallica, performed as scheduled.
