Due to logistical issues with event insurance and other local regulations, a handful of dates on the “The World Is a Vampire” tour in Australia were changed. I’ve updated the tour date records accordingly. An updated tour ad from One World Entertainment is below:
Jane’s Addiction touring Australia with Smashing Pumpkins

Jane’s Addiction releases statement about Dave & 2023 tour dates
Jane’s Addiction have released a statement on whom will be performing guitar on the upcoming tour dates later this year. Unfortunately Dave Navarro will not be talking part of the currently announced tour dates. Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, whom played with the guys on some of the dates of the Spirits on Fire tour in 2022, will be stepping in to play with the band.
The statement the band release is as follows:
We’d like to address the questions surrounding Dave and the upcoming
Jane’s shows. As a band we are in a great place, writing new music, and the bond is tighter than ever. We all hope Dave can be out playing with us; when he feels healthy and ready.
For the near future, our brother Josh Klinghoffer will jump in for the upcoming shows on the West Coast, South America and some additional international shows to be announced soon. We want to thank you for being there with us over these thirty some odd odd years. You know, we’re going to keep throwing down for you.
Perry, Eric & Stephen
Jane’s Addiction announce 5 US shows in March

Misc Jane’s Addiction Tour News
Jane’s Addiction cancelled their two Pennsylvania shows this past weekend due to an undisclosed “physical injury”. No word on whom is injured, or what the injury is. Obviously we wish whomever it is a speedy recovery.

Jane’s Addiction to tour without Dave Navarro
According to Rolling Stone, Dave Navarro will not (at least initially) be part of this fall’s Jane’s Addiction tour with Smashing Pumpkins due to his ongoing battle with Long-COVID. He’ll be replaced by Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen. This will be Jane’s first shows without Dave since he joined the band 37 years ago. The RS article is a good read, I recommend checking it out. It also confirms that Eric Avery will be part of the tour, which will be his first shows with the band since 2010.
Eric Avery in the studio with Jane’s Addiction!
This photo, originally posted by Etty Lau Farrell on Instagram, and later shared by Eric Avery on IG and Facebook, shows Eric, Perry and Steve Perkins in the studio together. This would be the first time Perry and Eric have worked on new music together since their ill-fated attempt after the 2009 NIN/JA tour.
This comes literally days after Perry revealed that he’s been in the studio with Peter DiStefano, working on new music for Porno For Pyros.
