Janes Addiction

Jane’s Addiction played their first concert in NYC in a really long time on Monday night (7/25). The reunited band did hit NJ and Long Island as part of their 2009 tour with Nine Inch Nails, but not NYC proper, not to mention not at a venue as small as Terminal 5 where this one took place.

Unlike in 2009 though, original bassist Eric Avery is not playing with them anymore. His return to form the complete original lineup was shortlived. Chris Chaney was back on bass for the show along with original members and reality TV stars Perry Farrelll & Dave Navarro and original drummer Stephen Perkins. TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek is playing bass on, and helping produce, a new album. I didn’t notice him anywhere though, but maybe he was in the house.

The free show was the “world’s first 3D user-generated concert event”. The concert itself wasn’t in 3-D, but it was being filmed (and streamed live on Youtube), and the footage is going to be turned into “one special 3D 60-minute documentary film which will be premiered on the LG Thrill 3D YouTube channel on August 4.” Those in attendance at the show were able to get their free tickets from various sources including Brooklynvegan, from LG, and via an allotment the band gave out via Ticketmaster.

Jane’s played a 12-song set (encore included) including classics and hits like “Ocean Size”, “Three Days”, “Been Caught Stealing”, “Stop!”, and crowd favorite “Mountain Song” which spawned the most moshing and ended with the loudest applause. They also played “Just Because,” off their first reunion album, and new track “Irresistible Force,” off the upcoming album The Great Escape Artist. When the band returned for an encore, they played the great “Jane Says” acoustic at the front of the stage, complete with bongos, though everyone’s attention was mostly on the massive amounts of confetti, regular balloons, and balloon animals that were falling from the ceiling. Two scantily clad female dancers, on stage for parts of the show, added to the glam of it all. The show probably could have been a bit longer, but it was free (and they got their footage).
