They're just not that
big. And I don't know anybody who would pay to see Jane's Addiction, their name precedes their music.
The AIC/Deftones/Mastodon tour filled small arenas, and in San Jose it didn't even quite sell out. I don't think JA/Coheed can even match what Deftones/Dong draw, plus all the other bands are basically moot because it's not a summer show and a lot of the shows are happening during the week.
