I saw Jane's at the Bowl. Good show. It was the one where Hole (they were great) opened and she went on a shitshow tirade against Perry. They cut power in response. Peter came out and played with Jane's. Nice night.

TOURDATES:

10/24 – Scotiabank Arena @ Toronto, ON**

** with guests Jane’s Addiction + opener Poppy
*^ with guests Jane’s Addiction + opener Meg Myers
Nope. Even the nosebleeds will at least $60 at Scotiabank Arena.

The last time I saw the Smashing Pumpkins was in 2015 with Marilyn Manson. I think it was called "End of Days" tour or something like that. SP were okay, not terrific but not horrible either. I had seen them a couple of times in the 90s and this show was a bit of a deflation compared to their earlier shows.

I'll have to see if the Howard Stern is on Youtube...I'd like to hear it.

That was a very good interview on Stern. And Jane Says actually sounded really good! I got floor tix for the MSG show. Sadly it looks like there is no pit. WTF! All seats.

Cheap seats are $46. Floor $147.

I'll absolutely go for $46 and make an evening of it, but I'm going to wait. These venues are way too big and I'm guessing the majority will not sell out.

I checked tickets for the Anaheim Pond aka Honda Center and the first dozen rows on the floor and on the sides are all "VIP" package seats running near $700 to $350+ per ticket. Anything further back on the floor runs about $99 - $150+. Interest looks pretty low, I'd guess this show might sell about 60% of available seats max. Hollywood Bowl prices are even more outrageous - Orchestra Pit runs $550 - $1,450. Expect the typical "Dynamic Pricing" bullshit to drop ticket prices way down as November approaches.

Hard Pass.

Janes as a purely nostalgia act, like a Beach Boys of the 90s. I just can’t. Saw them first in ‘89, last time 09. Every iteration in between. Came full circle in ‘09 seeing Eric again. Something poetic about that. I’m good from here on out.

I caught that show as well. That "performance" by Courtney Love completely solidified my dislike of her completely overshadowing whatever merits her music may (have) had. The Janes set was really the last time I thought the band had any of the old vibe left in them.

I can understand the poetic aspect.

But even '09 felt like a let down to me. '12 was better because Perry was being less ridiculous.

If I do go, I'm not really looking at it as seeing Jane's Addiction and Smashing Pumpkins. It's more like a snapshot of those bands and an evening of entertainment.

Yes, she's an idiot. Her behavior with the rights, etc and aggressive posture with the balance of Nirvana did it for me. And probably things I've long forgotten.

I wouldn't go to this because I hate the Bowl for concerts these days...and the prices. But, I had an absolute blast at the NS 25th anniversary thing on Sunset Blvd some years back. They were well into their cash in/lost voice/cosmetic surgery/B list TV show host era, but I can't completely remove what I loved about em in my youth when I'm there. Met a couple of peeps from here there, but once the show got started, I was in my own world and 24 again. Left drenched. Enjoy for those going. :rockon:

I agree regarding the Hollywood Bowl. I cannot stand being stuck in those 4 seat boxes with typically at least 2 other drunk idiots. Parking is like the 7th level of Hell. I think the last show I caught there was Arcade Fire back in May of 2007 and since then, I've blown off some shows there I would have otherwise made a serious effort to see.

The last Janes show I had a really good time at was Duff's last gig with them at the Roxy the Summer of 2020 which was I think the first time they used the Suspension Girls gimmick. The 2012 Great Escape tour show at the Wiltern was just ok.

Holy shit I completely forgot Duff was a member of Jane's Addiction. What a weird few years that was.

I love how any time another serious musician tries to invest in modern Jane's they never stick around.

Bit the bullet and grabbed a floor seat at the end of the row

Was it more than I wanted to pay ? Yes. But at least it wasn’t unlimited platinum BS prices. Just cover price.

I haven’t see Jane’s since 2013 and it seems that the band may not tour much based in recent histories. So…eh…

I think MSG may weirdly be a great setting for them —I don’t think they have played there since …01? Did they play during the reunions? Regardless it might bring something great out of them.

Yes they are a nostalgia act but…I’m in my forties it was blind to happen!

I’m excited though —haven’t seen Pumpkins since 1994!

Looks like hardly any tickets sold for St. Louis so far. Still plenty of seats up near the front. I'll wait until close to the show, and if it's still happening without a covid cancelation I'll grab some cheap tix, squint, and pretend it's still the 90s for a few hours.

Would it kill Navarro to add some little solos like Corgan!

It would require him to actually care about doing anything beyond going through the motions. Fat chance.

But that sounded pretty good. It's always lovely when Etty isn't somehow inserting herself in to things.

Smashing Pumpkins/Porno For Pyros tour I would like better since they're both 90's groups. Could have made their return really good.

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...
