thank you boys
This was just a great show period. Perry seemed in much better
condition than he did when I had seen him four months earlier. The
whole band seemed relieved that it was almost over and they played A
LOT more loose and spontaneously. Perry never stopped moving around
and bantering and seemed genuinly interested in what the audience was
doing. He seemed to be watching us as much as wer were watching him.
(And of course he had two beautiful girls in white dresses on a swing
making out during "Ted Just Admit it", as I'm sure he did at the other
Lolla shows. The whole stage was set up with flowering trees and
statues and there were also two human "marionettes". It was an
eclectic show and one I will never forget.
Lollapalooza FROM THE WASHINTON POST 8/18/91.
Considering the number of acts, the marathon concert ran surprisingly
smoothly and right on time. Jane's Adiction closed the proceedings
with its fluid meld of smart metal and postmodern angst. Farrell
can't decide whether to rock hard or rock art, so he does both, giving
songs like "Summertime Rolls", "Been Caught Stealing" and "Three Days"
a tense elasticity whether they race along or merely canter.
Farrell's a kinetic showman who'd like to be a shamen- his
between-song patter sounds like what Bob Dylan might say if he talked.
Very interesting and spontaneous like the music itself.
