Just to let you know that you can find some picture from the first and last Porno For Pyros concert in Italy on my web page at link under the section Photos and live report. The quality is very poor but i think it's good anyway for jane's fans. Porno for Pyros played at Festival dell'unità in Correggio, a sort of national politic festival made by italian communist every year, in that region/district named Emilia Romagna. It's not a musical festival, but sometime they organized music show to increase the public. Correggio it''s a province of Reggio nell'Emilia, one of the big city of this region that counts today 140.000 citizenz. This city it's near to most famous main city named Bologna. Anyway i was there for a great gig and i met entire staff of the band, especcially Stephen and Perry. I gave to they a little slap in their face just to let they know my anger about murdering Jane for a porn. They signed my ticket. Perry has All Star short tight pants and orange hair with deep black around his eyes. I was shocked. Perry was (and i think is) my idle! Porno for Pyros that year was the most expected band, the next week of that year was the turn of Bad Religion.

ps: i grow up with Jane's Addiction. the best band of my generation and without any doubt the better of the last 30 years. I love they so much!!! Hallo

Yes of course Mike. I can scan my ticket for all of you Jane's fans as soon as possible! As i said, i confirm this date! I was absolutely there! You can update the page info! Another details about that venue: a girl arrived in front of me, take a picture at me and said: You look like to Perry. It's much impressive in my mind and it's a pleasure to remember. I really don't know where's that picture. Then, just a little time before i went to the table where Porno for Pyros sit down, i was eating some chips and drink a bottle of wine, Perry and the staff arrived to sit down at the table near mine with security people. There was a guy with a signed board: POPE PERRY. Probably that guy was there in Rome, 2/3 years before, at the Jane's addiction concert when Perry says: I know you have a Pope. I'm a Pope two. I'm a Pope Perry! I wasn't there but i have a bootleg of this venue! Anyway Perry was a little bit antisocial or probably his status depended by the first Porno for Pyros concert in Italy after three or four great gigs under the name Jane's Addiction. Anyway he snubbed that guy, so i get up from my chair to went to their table. Security blocked but they understood i was in peace so they left me went at the table. Stephen was absolutely very nice, he was very dear!! I'm still remember his face, and his movement. i slapped (caress) his face and he smiled at me tolding to the band and some indian dancer: "He's a fan" so i gave to him another caress, then i turned to Perry i narrowed (sorry but i don't know if the verb it's correct) his neck invite him to sign my ticket...he signed on the part of the ticket to get out so i slapped his face (caress) invited him to sign on the right part, he done it looking at me in my eyes and he was very surprised, but he said nothing, keeping the same expression on his face! Probably this moment is the one of most beautiful memory in my life! Absolutely stuck in my mind! Sorry for long message and my not perfect english. Bye!

Hello shadow, thanks so much for sharing your story, your pictures, and your ticket! :cool:
It's always fun to read other fans experiences at the show but your information on this show is very valuable and appreciated. It is really cool that you were able to meet the band and have your ticket signed too.

Your English may not be perfect as you say but I was able to understand what you were saying perfectly. :)

One more question for you about this show.
Do you happen to have a recording of it?
Right now we list it as "no known recording" but I figure it is worth asking.

hallo to all of you! Thank you Helicine i've seen you updated the page telling the source.
Hallo handsome, you're absolutely right! I'm sorry for my English. My knowledge of your language is quite good because I have studied, but unfortunately since I stopped traveling the opportunity to speak english today are less than in the past. When you read me, please be patience! My mistake it's all about thinking in italian and not in english.
For the truth i haven't any recording of this show and i'm sorry to be not able to help you. Anyway, the world web site it's quite large and if i'll find the source it will be my pleasure give this recording to you.
Certainly you still have this material but let me tell to you that i can share
Jane's Addiction at City Square - Milano 1991 (recorded by me from old italian video music on video tape and then on music cassette, and finaly converted in mp3)
Jane's Addiction - Roma 1991
Porno for Pyros - Lollapalooza New Orleans 1992
The Mephisto Demo

ps: happy to have become a cat even though I prefer the dog cause the dog rules the night!

Question from someone new to the board: On the confirmed tour dates section where it says that the audio was recorded does that mean that the audio is available somewhere? I am specifically referring to the 10/4/1996 P4P show at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Long story short my (now) wife was pulled from the crowd to sing backup for that show and I would love to find a recording of it (even if the backup is inaudible) for her for Christmas.

Thanks in advance for any assistance in tracking down the audio.
