I saw this tour when it came to the Cameo Theatre on Miami Beach in November of 1987. Love and Rockets were touring off Earth Sun Moon and boy did I love “Mirror People” (still do). I’d never heard of Jane’s Addiction, as they’d yet to release their first album.
 
I won’t say Jane’s Addiction blew Love and Rockets off the stage; I don’t know that. What I do know is that I have no recollection whatsoever of Love and Rockets playing, while the image of Jane’s Addition sitting in their drum circle playing “Chip Away” seems indelibly etched into my memory after lo 24 years. No band I’d never heard of ever impressed me so much, and I ended up seeing the band four times before they broke up (the first time).
