Jane’s “Fans’ Addiction” Concert
by Dave Navarro on June 29, 2009
Jane’s “Fans’ Addiction” concert will take place this Friday July 2nd at The Roxy on the Sunset Strip.
The Roxy has always held a special place in our hearts because it’s where we recorded our first record. And as we said we want the majority of tickets to this show going to our fans so there will be a few ways to get them from us. Sign up for tickets on janesaddiction.com starting tomorrow. Also look for tweets from Perry or myself this week to win tickets. The remainder of seats will be for those who choose to wait in line at the Roxy on Friday. Doors will open at 8pm.
This show is part of the Sunset Strip Summer Concert Series presented by Bing and is being filmed for use at a later time so come dressed to have fun.
Perry Farrell revealed via Facebook that this Friday’s show will be at The Roxy Theatre:
Jane’s is heading up to the Sunset Strip. Returning to the location of our first recording; The Roxy this Friday night. I’m serious. There will be some tickets given away through the week. I will get more details tomorrow. I am looking for a local performance artist to startle my friends.
Jane’s Addiction announced tonight that they will be performing at a special show for the fans on July 2nd in Hollywood. We’ll pass along venue details and ticket info as soon as we can.
Dave Navarro posted the following on his 6767 site:
We in Jane’s Addiction have done several intimate LA shows over the past year or so… Little places with 100 or so tickets set aside for the fans. It was tough for a lot of fans to get in even after waiting all day for entry. With all of our friends and family in LA, it’s sometimes hard to accommodate everybody. Well it looks like we are doing another show and we have decided to make this show an event that is mainly for the fans. We are going to strip back the guest list, inviting only our immediate loved ones and let the majority of tickets be made available to the people who have given us so much over the years, the fans.
This show will be in Hollywood on July 2. Ticket information will be made available soon.
BlabberMouth has announced that Rich Costeywill be producing the upcoming Jane’s Addiction album, tentatively due in early 2011 on Capitol Records. Rich Costey produced Dave Navarro’s solo album Trust No One.
Costey has also previously worked with bands such as Rage Against The Machine, who Jane’s Addiction recently played two shows with in Europe, Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Mew and others.
As predicted, Jane’s Addiction played Been Caught Stealing and Mountain Song at Activision’s E3 event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night. We’d previously described it as a Guitar Hero event, but the event was actually celebrating all of Activision’s upcoming titles including DJ Hero and Call of Dudy: Spec-Ops.

The show’s lineup was as follows:
DJ Z-Trip, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Usher with an appearance by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, Maynard Keenan of Tool (backed by a full orchestra), Jane’s Addiction, Chris Cornell (backed by a full orchestra), N*E*R*D, Rihanna, Eminem.
Tony Hawk also appeared on stage to promote his upcoming game. You can check out a review of the show here. You can also check out the forums for pictures and discussion about this show.
Dave Navarro tweeted the following just a few minutes ago.
We are playing 2 songs at E3/Guitar Hero event on Monday… We made sure to get 10 pairs of tickets to give away. More to come…
E3 is the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, which kicks off this Monday.
UPDATE (6/13): According to another tweet from Dave, Jane’s will be playing at 9pm at the Staple Center. They’ll be playing “playing 2 songs (that appear in video games)”, which should be Mountain Song and Been Caught Stealing as the first appeared in Guitar Hero World Tour and the latter is set to appear in Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock.
Interestingly enough is that both songs appear in the rival Rock Band series of games as well. Mountain Song appears in Rock Band 2 and Been Caught Stealing is set to appear in Rock Band 3. The entire Nothing’s Shocking album is available as download-able content for Rock Band.
Fresh from Dan Cleary, Jane’s Addiction guitar tech extraordinary, we have the set list from today’s concert at the Gelredeom in Arnhem, Netherlands with Rage Against the Machine. The set list is as follows:
