Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction tour dates announced

Posted March 4th, 2009 by eric

Despite some individual members’ supreme awfulness over the years as well as the automatic lameness of the whole cash-cow reunion charade, I’m kind of intrigued to see the original line-up of Jane’s Addiction play again. Lone hold-out Eric Avery had long said he had no interest in pursuing the past, but I guess he caved for the cash, as most eventually do. A new Trent Reznor-produced record is in the works with the reunited quartet, so we’ll see if they can drum up any of that early tension,which is now two decades in the rear-view mirror. I have my doubts, but I must admit watching clips of the band’s recent show at the Echoplex in LA brought back a few nostalgic teenage moments. Reunions are tricky. They toy with your emotions and your memories. Nostalgia can make logic fuzzy and seem unimportant. Yes, all the danger is long gone, and, yet, there’s still some semblance of something exciting for those four guys to be playing together.
