Jane's Addiction has long been a favorite of ours here at and I've had the pleasure of shooting them live a handful of times, in addition to covering Lollapalooza for decades. So, we're thrilled to see this new release coming in August to celebrate 25 years of Jane's unique sound and showmanship.

Rock Fuel Media, in association with Sonic Films, Cleopatra Records, and MVD Entertainment Group, is excited to announce the August 4th release of the state-of-the-art DVD, Blu-ray, audio CD and vinyl collection by legendary, multi-Platinum rockers Jane's Addiction, called Ritual De Lo Habitual Alive At 25

Directed by Mark Ritchie (Madonna, Kanye West) and produced by Barry Summers (Rock Fuel Media), Jane's Addiction - Ritual De Lo Habitual Alive At 25 features a complete concert filmed at the historic Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre on September 23rd 2016, which was the last stop on the band's 20-city worldwide "Sterling Spoon Anniversary Tour." The powerhouse line-up of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney performed an explosive 90-minute show consisting of their entire landmark album Ritual De Lo Habitual, as well as some of the band's biggest hits spanning their 30-year career. It was all captured with 20 cameras throughout the venue and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound. 

As Perry Farrell explains, "25 years - what a beautiful milestone for both Ritual De Lo Habitual and Lollapalooza. As both were great achievements in our lives that also helped change the course of music history, we really sought to come up with a special show for this tour so that the fans could celebrate it with us."

Award-winning producer Barry Summers from Rock Fuel Media explains, "The band's great visual and very edgy performances always kick ass on stage. Ritual De Lo Habitual  is such an iconic album that changed the landscape of alternative rock and we wanted to capture the 25 year anniversary in stunning 4k. It's quite mind-blowing and we think fans will enjoy this package for years to come."

Jane's Addiction One For The Books at The Metro 9-25-11

Energy and emotions ran high last night, and in a strange deja vu, Jane's Addiction at The Metro is once again one for the books.    It was pure, visceral pleasure to see the boys back together again (with the addition of Chris Chaney on bass) playing the best of their old favorites and amazing new material.   The thirteen song set ended all too soon, and left fans hungry for more.    But it was quality over quantity.    And Jane's Addiction's still got it.    

They opened strong with Whores and gave the crowd a little tease with dancers.   Then they went into a tight Just Because, Ain't No Right, and Then She Did.   The crowd was right there with them on Stealing, Lies and Ocean.   Then the haunting 3 Days took things up a level.   

So many times new material takes a while to seep into the collective unconscious, and fans endure it while waiting for more well loved favorites they have a history with.    That is just not the case with Irresistible Force, which is quickly living up to it's name.    The energy stayed up and the crowd loved it.  Idiots, had the audience screaming and dancing.   Mountainwas poignant and amazing.  Stop had the whole floor of Metro teeming, writhing and crushing against the stage.  Jane Says rounded out the strong set and capped off an entirely memorable show.    

There's such a different vibe when a well loved band plays an intimate venue versus an arena show, and Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro in particular, made the most of the space and interacted liberally with the audience.  Many male and female admirers took the opportunity to get hands on with the boys in the band.   It's impressive to me that Perry's over 50 and can still pull off that frenetic energy and crackling sexuality he had over 20 years ago in the 80's.   Of course, the gorgeous, soft-core bondage dancers didn't hurt any either, for stirring up the crowd.   

Jane's Addiction still exudes that androgynous, sensual alt rock miasma that makes the darkest lyrics sexy, and has captivated audiences for decades.  This show truly came across as a thank you to the fans.   Amid the rock star posturing and showmanship, a good dose of genuine gratitude, and affection for the fans came through.    As Perry shared red wine and chocolates with fans and Dave crouched at the edge of the stage and serenaded individuals in the front row, the audience/ band rapport was elevated from one night stand to long term romance.   And with a 20+ year history, even an off again on again history, maybe that's just what it is.

Local Chicago band, Apteka, and Boys from Denver opened.  Boys claimed their hard won spot as openers by nailing a national unsigned bands competition.
