I would have been soooooooo into this in like 2005. Honda Center is an easy "in and out" for me... this concert is like 17 years too late.

I don't think I could physically handle the "cringe" of seeing Perry live ever again. I'd probably cringe so hard my heart and lungs would give out.

Billy is *almost* as bad as Perry...
I think I've hit both an age and level of acceptance that I just don't care enough to cringe. $100 for two tickets in the upper level is a reasonable price for an evening of entertainment for me. I won't be going for an "experience" like I used to, but as something to go do.

Side note - I've had a lot of people ask me to go to this show with them. I guess I'm the "Jane's Addiction guy" for some of my friends/family, and they figure it'll be more fun with me. I've had to explain things to all of them. :lol: I've tried not to be too negative, because non die hards tend to still like Jane's live. But I don't want them thinking "this is what he was always on about?"

bauhaus recently in a small venue, 10ft from the stage, was an experience. An intense and transcendent one. It’s because the band themselves have so much reverence for their own material. As they should. The Janes crew on the other hand? Let’s face it - Jane’s are just Karaoke Jane’s now. They have zero respect for what they made. Jane’s should never have warped into a thing to do.

I couldn't agree more. But that ship sailed a long time ago. If they were coming alone I'd likely sit it out. But TWO karaoke versions of once favorite bands?? Apparently I'm in. :lol:

Would it kill Navarro to add some little solos like Corgan!
Let's see whether he even makes the dates.

Agreed. I hope Dave is feeling well enough to do this tour when it starts, but I'm honestly wondering if it'll be switched to an SP/P4P tour at the last second.......which I would not complain about.

Yeah I’m a little concerned- I’m sure Taylor is weighing heavily on his mind. Chaney hasn’t acknowledged the tour either. Weirdly enough Jane’s insta used an old photo with Eric to promote the tour- lazy and misleading imo

Dave did get engaged the other day so congrats to him

If I am not mistaken, he (and numerous others on and off stage) came away with Covid from the Above Ground gig in December. If six months on from that, he can't do a single festival, a date, a full tour before the end of the year seems ambitious. But, who knows...nobody, it seems, when it comes to long covid. When the Daytona gig cancellation was announced, I did question the SP tour - for whatever reason, they didn't feel the need to delay the tour.

FWIW - I can't see a band switch on a tour like this working. They're been marketing it too aggressively with JA on the bill. More likely to have a stand-in guitarist. Comedy moment for Dan!
