Well, that was short lived. Jane’s Addiction have booked a live show for Sin City. The gig is booked for May 8th through the 10th at the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, a new venue that opens March 8th. After a tour last year, front man Perry Farrell stated that there were all kinds of trials and tribulations with the band, hinting at not having much of a good time while touring. Then, just this month, Farrell said he would be taking a long break from the band to work on a musical about the sex and drug trade in Thailand. But, that break apparently is only until at least May. It’s unclear if the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas venue jumped the gun when they posted the Jane’s Addiction shows for May, but Farrell acknowledged the show this week in a Rolling Stone interview saying Vegas is the perfect place to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album. The band will be performing their album Nothing Schocking in full during those Vegas shows.
Trent Reznor sent out a heartfelt “F**K YOU” to the Grammys Sunday and now the executive producer is sending out a heartfelt apology, but is still making excuses. Reznor launched the criticism via Twitter Sunday after discovering the joint Nine Inch Nails/Queens of the Stone Age performance was cut off in some broadcasts to make way for promotional considerations. He said it was music’s biggest night to be disrespected. With nearly 18,000 retweets and nearly 14,000 favorites the Grammy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrilch said he’s sorry Reznor was upset, but says that there were time constraints that forced the show to end abruptly. That doesn’t cover all the other acts of disrespect, including removing certain categories that would have been more inclusive for more genres of heavy metal and rock music. Here’s to not giving a F**K about the Grammys!
Kick his ass out
