Throwback Concert: Jane’s Addiction at Palace Theater 2012

Throwback Concert: Jane’s Addiction at Palace Theater 2012

By Drew Carrano

We’re lucky to have some beautiful classic theaters here in Connecticut. The Shubert in New Haven, The Warner in Torrington, and The Kate in Old Saybrook are just a few of the great historic venues here in our state. But the theater that hosted perhaps the biggest names in rock is the classic Palace Theater in Waterbury. Bands like Pink Floyd, Queen, Grateful Dead, Santana, Genesis, Alice Cooper, and Frank Zappa all performed on The Palace stage.

Today we look back at a more recent show featuring one of the biggest names in alternative rock: Jane’s Addiction.

Today’s Throwback Concert:

Jane’s Addiction

The Palace Theater – Waterbury


About The Tour: In 2012 Jane’s Addiction announced a series of intimate live shows in support of their new album, The Great Escape Artist, which was released in October 2011. The U.S. tour played mostly in classic theaters across the Northeast and Midwest and kicked off in St. Louis  in February. The show at The Palace Theater in Waterbury in March was Jane’s Addiction first appearance in Connecticut since their memorable headlining performance at The Gathering of The Vibes the previous summer.

Jane’s Addiction 90-minute performance at The Palace opened with the new single, Underground, and then followed by hits Mountain Song, Just Because and Been Caught Stealing. The rest of the evening was filled with brand new songs from The Great Escape Artist, a mid-show acoustic set and fan favorites like Jane Says.
