Jane’s Addiction To Return To Intimate Club Shows; Delay Album

The following was sent out by Jane’s Addiction’s official fan mailing list.  Note the Great Escape Artist is now due out on October 18:

JANE’S ADDICTION TO RETURN TO INTIMATE CLUB SHOWS

On November 23 and 25, 1988, alternative rock pioneers JANE’S ADDICTION took to the stage of Chicago’s legendary Metro—the city’s destination for exciting new music–to launch their seminal, ground-breaking album Nothing’s Shocking.  On September 24 and 25, 2011, frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass, will return to the venue partnering with Citi to launch their newest offering, THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, now due out Tuesday, October 18 via Capitol.

These Chicago dates mark the start of a one-of-a-kind series of two-night stands that will also take place in New York and Los Angeles. Citi® cardmembers will have access to presale tickets for the Chicago Metro shows beginning Tuesday, September 6th at 10AM central time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. For complete presale details including exclusive VIP packages, custom launch show merchandise and unique opportunities to interact with the band visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

Tickets go on sale for the Chicago Metro shows on Saturday September 10. Keep checking www.citiprivatepass.com, www.JanesAddiction.com and www.facebook.com/JanesAddiction for ticket information on Los Angeles and New York.

The idea of big bands playing small rooms is always a special experience for the fans, but for JANE’S ADDICTION, this will also take them back to re-play some of their early classic shows in legendary clubs. JANE’S 1988 two night stand at the Cabaret Metro for Nothing’s Shocking are still considered by many Chicagoans as some of the greatest rock club shows of all time.

9/24         Chicago, IL                                Metro
9/25         Chicago, IL                                Metro
