Street Sweeper (Staciaann Photography)
Boots Riley and Tom Morello

"Nine Inch Nails and the original Jane's Addiction lineup will embark on a May/June co-headlining tour that will see these seminal artists sharing a stage for the first time since the historic debut of the Lollapalooza festival in 1991...

The NIN/JA tour will feature a streamlined NIN with Reznor on vocals, guitars, keys, Robin Finck on guitars and keys, Justin Meldal-Johnsen on bass and keys, and newest NIN member IIan Rubin on drums and keys. NIN's stripped down configuration for the upcoming dates was inspired by a pair of club shows toward the end of last year's wildly ambitious Lights In The Sky tour. Leaving the massive production in the trucks for those two nights freed up the band for spontaneous performances including several seldom-aired NIN classics and inspired NIN to take a similarly unencumbered and unpredictable approach to the May/June dates, which include previously announced NIN appearances at the Sasquatch and Bonnaroo festivals...

...Support for all NIN/JA dates will be Street Sweeper, a collaboration between Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine/The Nightwatchman and Boots Riley of The Coup.

Tickets go on sale beginning March 13th, visit NIN.com, JanesAddiction.com and LiveNation.com for additional ticket and tour information.

anon 1:37, when it is available NIN.com will have it first. Also if you want to get in on the pre-sale I suggest joining NIN.com. The pre-sale experience for the Lights in the Sky show for the Meadowlands last year was pretty awesome.

Jane's should be headlining this

No, Jane's should not be headlining this and the ticket info is coming soon, don't expect the presales for the local shows to come for another 2-3 weeks because no shows presales have even been announced yet

"So does anyone know the latest with tailgating at PNC? I have not been to that place in years1 I know last year they gave a list of gigs where they would allow drinking"

That is a fantastic question that I would also like to know the answer to.

I went to PNC last summer for STP (horrible show), but we were able to drink no problem in the parking lot. They only cracked down on certain shows with younger audiences, like 311, John Mayer and OzzFest.

does PNC have a GA Pit area or is it all seated (+ lawn)?

Posted by wembley | March 9, 2009 4:16 PM

seated plus lawn, pits are usually up on the lawn.

The Street Sweeper is a shotgun. When do they go after the hipsters? Count me in!

If Jane's headlined, 60% of the audience would leave when Trent walked off the stage.
