I Would had great reverb on Perry's vocals. Finally!!! They jammed out Stop too. Great energy.

Jane's blew P4P out of the water.

Just saw the whole thing. Loved it. Agree that they are better without the dancers.

Hope they tour next year. I will be there.

My first thought is Eric should be playing that....what was the left in the dust ex girlfriends songs...he now drags back out as a last gasp....but it did sound fine...good to see Dave playing guitar

Etty must fucking hate the power of those old love songs

I don't think she knows the difference anymore; or, just doesn't care by now...

On the opposite, I loved it.
I would love to have a tour with "rare" or not-much-played songs.

My Time, 1%, Kettle Whistle, Obvious, etc. And even songs from Strays and TGEA that didn't appear live.

Those Jane's songs inspired me to put on a vintage Jane's show on YouTube.

Always loved this boot. Shot close, from the side of the stage in a small british club early on the Ritual tour.

That Ziggy version is the best live performance I’ve seen in Perry’s final form of “The old punk/lounge act/Vegas showman”

He was GOING for it while he sang and it was sorta awesome.

Perry sounded really good for all the songs that were shown over the weekend. Were they touched up a bit? Good stuff. Hopefully Lolla 30 (2021) has a Porno set one night and a Janes set one night.

I was pleasantly surprised , all the songs(Bowie cover, PFP, JA) sounded great! :cool: :rockon:

Perhaps ditching the dancers and doing these streaming performances is the way for PF to get his groove back.

My jaw dropped at the opening bass lines....really did not think 'I Would for You' would ever get played again, so this was a fantastic surprise. As was the fact that Perry actually delivered something. Genuinely enjoyable to listen to him. It's been a while since I can say that of a JA song.

Also, full credit for leaving out the stripper + for not just airing the most standard pair of JA songs. It ALMOST makes be curious what else they played for the session that's not been aired.

C'mon kv, "I Would For You" is no "Applause For You"!

Yeah, what PB said basically. I thought both Jane's songs sounded great but IWFY was wonderful and I've played the arse off it today.

Hoka has said it a bunch I think but I'd just love a tour with all of them on stage jamming the shit out of Jane's and Porno songs... call it what you want.

Perry was surprisingly decent with both the Janes and Porno For Pyros sets. Not a fan of the lounge act Ziggy cover though. It's nice to see Dave finally at least accepting and maybe embracing growing old with his naturally grey beard and granny glasses. He can still play which is what counts. I haven't been much of a fan of Jane's last few money-grab classic album tours but I'd be onboard if they could do a set of mostly rare tracks including stuff from Strays and a few new songs for one more tour with just the four guys playing like they mean it with no pew pew keyboards, distracting onstage wife and swingin' bondage bimbos.
