When the announcement of a reunited jane’s addiction, to tour this summer along with nine inch nails was made it gave me chills and brought back some old memories of my first jane concert back in 1990 at the garden in n.y.c. this was a great show from start to finish. opening the gig was tom morello and boots riley’s Side Street Social Club. SSSC is a very hard and groovey outfit. nice songs and a bit of social comment/message along for the ride. NIN was next in line. though it was listed as a co-headline bill, many people thought that nin was headlining the event not providing support to jane. this was a lost point on many concert goers that began pouring in late as nin was playing during the early gigs in the tour. No matter who trent brings to play with him, his band always deliver the precision it needs to play nin songs on stage.
