Jane's Addiction, Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Arizona State Fair, 10/24/12

Jane's Addiction @ Veteran's Memorial Coliseum|10/25/12
I have a confession to make. I've never taken Jane's Addiction all that seriously. I think it's largely due to guitarist and modern-rock caricature Dave Navarro. His dedication to choosing mascara over shirts remains laughable.

But you'd have a hard time convincing the crowd that the 27-year-old alternative band weren't kings, as the packed showgoers roared for an hour-long, greatest hits-style set.
