(Chicago, IL) – Legendary alternative rock pioneers Jane’s Addiction, have announced a spectacular addition to their sold-out Lollapalooza after show at the Aragon Ballroom on August 4 – the U.S. debut of a new 360 degree livestream technology, known as PanoCast Spherical 360 VR, that will allow fans the unique opportunity to not only watch the concert from their computers, but see the venue from every angle with a click of their mouse.   

PanoCAST Spherical 360 VR moving imagining technology represents a radical departure in moving image production. Described as an immersive and interactive experience for audiences, it allows viewers of the PanoCAST livestream to be immersed in a radically innovative audience experience delivered to their home computers. This interactive technology gives each participant a unique, real-time point-of-view from which to experience the live concert. Viewers will use their computer mouse to "look around" and zoom in and out on the action at the live concert scene.

“It’s going to be a historic evening for Lollapalooza and Jane's Addiction. All those who couldn't get a ticket (4,000 lucked out of 300,000) can view our after party as if their eyeballs were rolling around the ballroom,”says front man Perry Farrell.

The livestream will be carried on and is scheduled to start at 10:15pm CST on Saturday, August 4, 2012.  The link will be live just before show time.

Tickets for this extraordinary Lollapalooza after show event sold out in 5 minutes, and will feature Jane’s Addiction, very special guests Franz Ferdinand, dubstep pioneers Skream and Benga, and Ume, a Texas-based rock band that was handpicked by Perry Farrell from the hundreds of bands featured on

    Agreed, great show, I enjoyed it immensely, David's playing as usual is immaculate, stylish, perfected, legendary, Perry was in fine form and from how he addressed the audience had they of performed "PIZ" with that mid-stream chat, for lack of a better word, he has done before much to the delight and amazement of the fans, would have been brilliant, I've only one complaint, not at all about The Legendary Iconic Classic Brilliant Pioneering Jane's Addiction, but of and to the PanoCast personel and that is: no matter what I tried and how many times I pressed the fullscreen button, it gave an error of the inability to do so, thus making their statement of an all around 360 degree experience of the show a fallacy in my view, did anyone else have that problem? My LapTop is brand new and loaded for bear, so I know it wasn't my machine, just wondering if anyone else had the same issue, all in all Jane's Addiction is, without a single doubt or moment of hesitation the Best Band in Musical History! Thank you so much David, Perry, Stephen, Chris for the best show ever! --Marie
