Think about this: graduating high-school seniors were peeking out there little heads from their momma's when Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction changed the face of music with the initial Lollapalooza tour. I was in 8th grade and missed that show, but became a huge Jane's fan and caught the next four Lollapaloozas ultimately propelling me to my love of live shows. So now in 2009, Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and the rest of Jane's have (temporarily) put the bullshit aside to milk the cash cow one more time. I'm all for it - I was only able to see the band once when Flea toured with them circa 1997 and that was a very memorable show.
Evidently tickets aren't selling like hot-cakes; craigslist is flooded with good seats at cost, and they're even selling lawns for 1990's prices: $20. Joseph the Broseph is expecting tickets to be falling from the sky by showtime. He's also hoping to sell some Camel's and Yuenglings to cover costs. We have a wild crew for the show tonight: tatooed, middle-aged perverts, some big-tittied silicone hotties and a recently graduated frat-daddy-bro.
