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.
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.

Jane’s Addiction will be performing on the second night of the Bayfest Music Festival in Mobile, Alabama.
AltRock group joins Alabama, Ludacris, CeeLo Green, among others
Jane’s Addiction, with lead singer Perry Farrell and lead guitarist Dave Navarro, will be coming to BayFest in Mobile, event organizers said on Wednesday, July 30.
The announcement completes the 2014 lineup of the October 3-5 festival, which also includes Kid Rock, Alabama, Earth Wind & Fire, CeeLo Green, Stone Temple Pilots Foster the People and more.
“We are extremely excited to have Jane’s Addiction play our 20th Anniversary Festival,” said BayFest President and CEO Bobby Bostwick. “The energy and enthusiasm of Jane’s Addiction continues the BayFest tradition of great entertainment, atmosphere and the best variety in music at Alabama’s largest music festival.”
2014 marks the 20th year of the music festival and organizers say it could bring up to 200,000 people, to downtown Mobile. The organizers said in an earlier release that the festival started out with about 50,000 people during its debut in 1995. They said that, since then, the festival has generated $325 million in revenue.
According to NME, Stereo Board, and Get to the Front the two previously announced Jane’s Addiction shows in England this summer have been revealed to be concerts where the band will play their WB debut album Nothing’s Shocking in it’s entirety. This is similar to the trio of shows the band is playing in Las Vegas next month.
Here is the article from NME:
Jane’s Addiction announce London and Manchester dates
Band will perform ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ album in full during August gigs
Jane’s Addiction have announced details of live dates in London and Manchester later this year.
The band will perform their 1988 debut studio album ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ in full at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on August 20 before doing it all over again at the O2 Apollo in Manchester on August 21.
Speaking to NME, the band’s guitarist Dave Navarro, who has been lobbying the rest of the band to perform the album “for years and years”, said it will be the first time the band have played ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ in full.
He said: “Shows around that time were always a collection of new songs and older songs. I remember on the ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ tour we were playing songs from ‘Ritual (‘Ritual De Lo Habitual’, the 1990 follow-up)’, which was yet to be released.
“I’m really, really looking forward to playing it through. Stephen Perkins, Chris Chaney and I have played it a number of times together backstage where we have another set of guitars, amps and drums for warming up on. Last tour we played ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ all the way through and it sounded fantastic.”
Navarro went on to say that even though the band had performed some of the songs from the album in the past, playing the album from start to finish will give each of the tracks a different energy.
He revealed: “We’ll be more focused for sure. We’ve drifted from the original recordings when we play live, that’s just what happens, but at these shows in August, they’ll sound as they did all those years ago.”
He also added that even though he is now a more technically gifted guitarist, he hopes to recapture some of the youthful energy of the original recording, flaws and all. He stated: “I’ve not really listened to ‘Nothing’s Shocking’ since it came out but I have done recently. It was very strange and struck me how fearless we were, even though the playing’s not as good. It’s weird for me to have to relearn my own band’s music. A lack of education on your instrument can lead to more visceral music. But these shows are going to be great, and I can’t wait.”
Tickets for the show go on general sale on 2 May at 9am. To check the availability of Jane’s Addiction tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
