Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Hey Pheno, looks like you got your Broken+ B-sides set last night! It was fucking nuts! With the exception of the Intern show in 2009, which I believe you were also at, this was the best nin gig I have ever seen. The set list was phenomenal. Yes, Broken and nothing post 1994. While I certainly am n...

Re: Kind Heaven Orchestra's 12/2 show: Will it happen or not?

I've said this before in relation to NIN/JA but, while that might hold true in the US, this side of the Atlantic (the UK anyway) that suggestion's a joke. Perry, and Jane's, are all but forgotten to all but the hardcore, long-term fans. NIN have massive recognition across all generations, and not j...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

It'll just be one in the run for me. Had tickets for Tuesday and Wednesday, but now don't have the time to stay down there two night, so ditching Wednesday. I think a lot of people had particularly high hopes for these shows, though the first two were pretty run of the mill (unless you count the HTD...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Thanks for the rundown re the ticket scenario. Have only been to the venue once (for nin, oddly enough), so don't know it well. As for merch- the cash grab is on. Apparently they're selling merch in the parking lot from 2pm each day.....to anyone. You don't need to be a ticket holder, which given th...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Here's hoping there is a section where one will be spared Reznor bringing his Mrs out on stage for three songs during a nin set! Not even Perry inflicted giving Etty a microphone on JA fans. To be less snarky, plenty of people seem be stoked with having the HTDA re-hash, but I really don't get that ...

Re: Kind Heaven Orchestra's 12/2 show: Will it happen or not?

Thoughts? Who...me? Honestly, I knew it would be a mess going in. I had expectations of nothing more than a car crash, and it was exactly that. Had this been billed as anything other than their first performance, I wouldn't have paid the absurd price they charged for the show. I honestly don't see h...

Re: Kind Heaven Orchestra's 12/2 show: Will it happen or not?

I checked with the Fillmore BO about a month ago to see how well the show had been selling - after having been on sale for about a week, it was halfway sold. The venue is still trying to promote the show, so I suspect there are still quite a few tickets left, but the room won't be completely empty.

Thanks for the audio - I barely listen to them anymore, but am not too jaded to pass on listening to some shows I have never heard. Cheers. :cheers:

Re: 10 Years Since La Cita

I almost feel bad for having this be a near-perfect night. Almost. I don't recall the exact chain of events, but as I recall....I was hounding the venue and promoter for ticket information the day before, and the guy promoting the show answered the phone at some point. When I mentioned that I would ...

Re: The last time you saw Jane's live

24 Feb 2010. Pretty sure this was the last EA club/theatre show. The ones he did after that were festival shows. I fucking loved it. Indeed, the Melbourne show was the last headline show with EA - I think there was one festival show after that...in Perth? Went to the one before yours in Sydney and ...

Have been in the Bay Area for 11 years now, but while I cheer for the locals, I don't trade allegiances. As painful as that is right now. ...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Trent seems determined to recapture some of the old energy and unpredictability of better days. He is that, I think, though I am not sure he is quite delivering on the unpredictability part of it. Will be curious to hear what you think come mid-December. For a handful of the tours (pre and up to th...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

Have seen them on every tour, multiple shows on each tour from The Fragile onwards. For me, that really was their peak. Both in terms of the studio material but also live performances (the last shows of Wave Goodbye notwithstanding). Part of this is probably down to age and the aggression of those s...

Re: PERRY FARRELL Signs With BMG For New Solo Album, 'Kind Heaven'

If you want to hear it the way it's supposed to be, go to the show. Because I guarantee within 6 months they will just be a Jane's Addiction cover band. Oh, I know...all too well. Saw SP in June 2007 ( :tiphat: Dannyboy) and they were entertaining enough, if memory serves. Then again in October and...

Re: NIN + Jesus And Mary Chain Tour

They've now played 62 songs so far across 15 shows, apparently - quite the haul. Sadly, most of them have been unremarkable set lists, with the exception of the two nights 'Broken' has been trotted out. I've seen a couple of shows so far on the tour and have four more, but I really think this is the...
