Jane’s Addiction showed their fans at the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas that the rock veterans still have what it takes to perform a cinematic live experience on Friday night. Named to VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” list, the band jammed out to hits such as “Jane Says,” “Been Caught Stealing” and “Mountain Song.”
Jane’s Addiction released their first studio album, Nothing’s Shocking, in 1988 with their most recent, The Great Escape Artist, being released in October of last year. The hardcore rockers have made a name for themselves at numerous music festivals including Lollapalooza and Voodoo Fest, and have been Grammy-nominated in three different decades. Their songs serve as the Ten Commandments for alternative rock, inspiring an entire generation of bands such as Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam and Tool.
Next up at the summer concert series at the Boulevard Pool is blink-182 on Friday, Sept. 28, and Saturday, Sept. 29.
