Underground
Mountain Song
Just Because
Been Caught Stealing
Ain't No Right
Irresistible Force
Jane Says
Chip Away
Up the Beach
Whores
Ted
Splash a Little Water On It
Ocean Size
Stop!
(straight set—no encore)


Is there any point in writing reviews/thoughts on a Jane's Addiction show anymore? (Unless you're Pandemonium)

Solid musically, with a few interesting twists to old material—Dave's performance stood out for me and I am not one who is frequently wowed by him. Perry seems to have cut out the karaoke antics (or at least did so tonight), and his vocals were....almost good. As much as I loved the NIN/JA shows, they would have been even better if he'd delivered this kind of performance.

I enjoyed the show more than I thought I would, but I went in with NO expectation. I'm not a soft drink drinker, but seeing them now is like wanting a Coke and only having the option of Diet Coke. It's kind of the same thing, but it's not at all the same. I won't milk the poor analogy by talking about the funny aftertaste...

Edit: last song of the set (after 'Stop!') was 'Summertime Rolls'.

And I agree about Dave, lately he has been the only shining star in show I saw in the summer
