Thursday evening, Jane’s Addiction recorded an appearance for the upcoming TV series Guitar Center Sessions, a high-definition 3D television series for DirecTV. This included the band performing a handful of songs and doing a Q&A with the show’s host. The band discussed their roots, their past break ups, the addition of Duff McKagan, writing new songs, and much more. The live performances included semi-acoustic versions of Ain’t No Right, Been Caught Stealing, Jane Says, and the introduction of a new song titled Broken People. If that weren’t enough, after the band finished playing Been Caught Stealing, Dave asked Perry “do you remember this one…” and broke into the classic song City, which Perry joined right in on. This marks the first time since 1988 that the guys performed this song.
This session was an extremely intimate performance in front of approximately 30 people, and to our own amazement, included JanesAddiction.org’s own Mike and myself . After the performance, we were able to watch the playback in 3D, which was truly amazing. We’re not sure when this episode will air, but as soon as we know, we will let you know.
