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...
