Janes Addiction

As previously mentioned, Jane's Addiction, the band (give or take a member) responsible for 1988's Nothing's Shocking and 1990's Ritual de lo Habitual, not to mention 1987's Jane's Addiction, are playing a free show at NYC's Terminal 5 on July 25th (7:30pm doors, 9:00pm show).

The show is free, but you need a ticket to get in. There were a bunch of Ticketmaster-based "presales" this morning, but they "sold out" quick. Around 1pm today Jane's posted this message to Facebook: "Terminal 5 tickets are officially gone! Sorry to those who couldn't get them, and to those that did, see you on the 25th."

Well, that's not completely true. We have a bunch to give away, and we're offering two ways for people to win a pair (if you are 21+, not our rules). You can email us an entry (instructions below), or enter via the BrooklynVegan Facebook (via a contest post which will be up soon - keep an eye out for it).

So why this concert? Well in the words of show sponsor LG:

The technological force of LG is uniting with YouTube, the largest video-sharing site on the web, to create a one-of-a-kind concert experience that will push senses into another dimension. On July 25, LG Mobile Phones and YouTube will give Jane's Addiction and tech fans the exclusive opportunity to watch and be a part of the World's First 3D User-Generated Concert event. Adding a whole new dimension to the concert experience, attendees will use LG Thrill 4G devices to shoot their own 3D video of what is sure to be an electrifying performance. The 3D creations will then be collected and combined by LG into one 60-minute documentary - culminating in what will soon be known as the World's First 3D User-Generated Concert. Consumers watch the concert live on YouTube (7/25) or at an AT&T store on the new LG Thrill 4G. Fans can tune back into the LG Thrill YouTube 3D channel on August 4th to view the premiere of the 3D documentary. Visit LGThrill4G.com for more information about the concert and the awe-inspiring glasses-free 3D LG Thrill 4G exclusively on AT&T.
So there you have it. Sounds pretty cool. Contest details below...

If I'm not mistaken, you get a "3D Concert Experience" from buying a ticket, getting off your ass, and going to a concert.

sounds way lame to me

Are they handing out phones to all the attendees?

One of the biggest things that ruins concerts nowadays is everyone holding up their phones and taking shitty blurry photos while obscuring my view of the show.

They are so focused on taking a shitty blurry camera phone photo that they aren't even paying any attention to the show that they paid to see, and will leave the show with a wonderful memento: a shitty blurry photo of the concert you weren't paying attention to.

Agreed so much 8.57. Glad I'm not the only one. Wish there was a strict no cameras policy at clubs(except possibly press, and then preferably limited to 10 shots). It's so fucking aggravating. I am usually a pretty laid back person, but I really have had a couple concerts ruined completely by those hijinks.

remember when stupid frat boy mosh pits would obstruct your view? Let us get rid of all tall people because they also obstruct the elfin' creatures view. How about getting rid of the guy pretending to not smoke yet a cloud of smoke rising from his body like a ethereal comic character.

this is the first time in a while I have thought that the comments section has done the story justice.

Every time I see Dave Navarro's face I want to slap him with a big fish

Dave Navarro looks like he's even phoning in the bad-boy lean he's rocking for the press photo. Sophia Coppola should make a movie of that asshole's tired and privileged existence.

Did that fuck-face ever do an episode of Cribs? I'd love to get a look at his linen closet.

i was at a show on sunday and a girl was dancing and filming with her phone at the same time. i looked at the screen and it was all over the place. do people actually watch what they record?

wow, what a bunch of filthy haters you all are. It's free, stop bitching.

SOUNDGARDEN!

does this show come with an instruction manual?

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2011 12:29 AM

agree too @8:57. that's why i rock balconies now if i can. usually people are more mellow up on balconies than they are on the dance floor. and you're guaranteed a better view.

If Jane's continue this malarkey, they'll be going the way of Queensryche!

Posted by Devon | July 13, 2011 7:06 PM

Yup, more phones in your faces. I hope all your future concerts are ruined and that you all have a shitty day. Your anger = my laughter.

i would love to see jane's addiction! the only problem is that i live on a tiny rock called st. thomas!

Posted by deeznuts | July 13, 2011 9:45 PM

Wow... what's wrong with you guys?? I hope Janes puts on the best f'n show ever!!! The concert is free. What's all the bitching about. Sometimes people aren't happy unless they are complaining. I'm psyched to be able to get to see one of my favorite bands EVER! Phones, no phones... whatever!!!!
Devon said it perfectly.. get with the times or fade to black..
THREE DAYS!!

Every one knows that Eric Avery's bass lines are what make Janes songs.

Love Perry.
Bring back the Enit Fest!
