JANE'S ADDICTION ADDS U.S. DEBUT OF 360-DEGREE LIVESTREAM TECHNOLOGY AT LOLLAPALOOZA AFTER SHOW

REDBULLUSA.COM TO CARRY UNIQUE PANOCAST LIVESTREAM

(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 Jane's Addiction performance 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 redbullusa.com/aftershow and is scheduled to start at 10:15pm CST on Saturday, August 4, 2012. The link will be live just before show time. Jane's Addiction and openers Ume will be the only featured performances for this livestream.

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 RedBullSoundStage.com.

The livestream was made possible by sponsors Red Bull Soundstage, Citi Private Pass and Miller Lite, who teamed up with event sponsors Rolling Stone Magazine, Rock Revival Jeans, and Dobel Tequlia on what promises to be a truly memorable evening for all involved.
