As this is the 25th anniversary for the Ritual de lo Habitual album, Jane’s Addiction will be performing the album in its entirety at shows later this year. The first confirmed Ritual show is at the 2015 Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin, TX at the Auditorium Shores. The FFF Festival runs from November 6-8th. The exact date Jane’s is performing isn’t know at this time.
According to Blabbermouth, Jane’s Addiction will be performing on the second night of the 2015 Aftrershock Festival at Gibson Ranch in Antelope, CA (outside of Sacramento).
Jane’s Addiction will be playing their first dates ever in the state of Alaska. The guys will be in Fairbanks at the Blue Loon on July 24, and in Anchorage Alaska at the Moose’s Tooth Pub the following night on July 25. In the band’s near 30 years, they have never played in the state of Alaska before.
Jane’s Addiction will be playing in the Crystal Ballroom in Portland on July 21, and the Shadowbox Sodo in Seattle on July 22. The guys will also be playing a pair of festivals in western Canada, although we don’t have the exact dates yet. First up is Rock The Shores in Colwood, BC, and the second is the Pemberton Music Festival in Pemberton, BC. These two festivals overlap dates a bit. Once the schedules for each are announced, we’ll update our show records.
New dates announced include The Electric Factory in Philadelphia on May 14, The House of Blues in Cleveland on May 21, and The LC Pavilion in Columbus on July 7. Despite word that last year’s final Vegas shows would be the last of the Nothing’s Shocking performances, these all appear to be Nothing’s Shocking shows. Maybe it was just the final NS show in Vegas? I’ll keep adding dates as I find out about them.
Jane’s Addiction will also be playing the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY according to BrooklynVegan.com; the site also says that all three NYC area shows will be full performances of the Nothing’s Shocking album.
In addition to headlining a night at Common Ground Festival in Lansing, MI on July 8, according to NextMosh.com, Jane’s Addiction will be performing at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on May 15, and The Paramount in Huntington, NY on May 18. According to Postcrescent.com, Jane’s Addiction will be performing at Summerfest at the Marcus Amphitheater in Milwaukee, WI on July 4.
According to Fox 59 Indianapolis, Jane’s Addiction will headline the Carb Day music festival on May 22, 2015. O.A.R. and 38 Special will also be performing. From Fox 59:

Dave’s good friend Todd Newman has done a documentary about Dave and the murder of his mother. There is a very powerful trailer online for it now at: http://mourningsonthefilm.com/
No word yet on when the complete film will be out, or how it will be available. I’ll post when I know more.
