Jane's Addiction will release a concert document called Live In NYC on June 25th. The set will be issued on DVD/CD, Blu-ray and double LP vinyl, as well as standalone DVD and CD. The show was filmed and recorded at New York City's Terminal 5 on July 25th, 2011, while the band was touring in support of its first studio album in eight years, The Great Escape Artist.
The highly theatrical stage production on that tour featured flying burlesque dancers, trapeze artists, carnival sideshow antics and an extensive laser show, while the band's set list included classics such as "Stop!", "Been Caught Stealing," "Jane Says," "Whores," "Up The Beach," "Ocean Size" and "Mountain Song."
Guitarist Dave Navarro told us that technology has made it easier to play the old songs live nowadays: "In the old days on the old records, I had, you know, maybe 10 tracks of guitars per song, and live I just play the ones I can. You know, especially with technology today and being able to run, like, samples of keyboards and stuff without actually having to have a player onstage, it helps us to be able to fill out the sound sometimes."
Jane's Addiction and Alice In Chains will lead the lineup of the fourth annual Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival, which kicks off on August 9th in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Other acts on the bill include Coheed And Cambria, Circa Survive, Walking Papers, New Politics, Danko Jones and more.
Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell told Rolling Stone last fall that he had written some 60 songs for the band's next album, saying it would be "something that the world has never experienced . . . I'm building it simultaneously with the live show in mind and it's just going to be out of sight!"
