Jane’s Addiction has added another date to their spring 2009 tour. They will be playing the nTelos Wireless Pavillion in Portsmouth, VA on June 13. This is not a NIN/JA date, as NIN will be playing the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee that same day. Tickets go on sale next Friday, April 23rd at 10am.
Perry celebrated his 50th birthday this past weekend at the Mirage in Las Vegas with the aptly named “Perrypalooza”. There were a number of performances that night from various celebrities. Jane’s Addiction closed out the night, but equally as important is the fact that this night was the first time in 12 years that Porno For Pyros performed together. Perry, Steve, Martyn and Pete cranked out Meija and Tahitian Moon.
Here are a couple of articles for those who want to read about all the fun:
Just a reminder, the Jane’s Addiction box set Cabinet of Curiosities comes out next Tuesday. There are two main flavors, a regular and limited edition version. Musically, the two versions are identical, but the limited edition version has a few extras inside the box for die hard collectors. This version is limited at 7500 numbered copies, and there are rumors that pre-orders have already claimed most of them. Also, Best Buy has a their own special edition which includes a bonus disc containing four live tracks taken from the Irvine Meadows Lollapalooza shows on July 23rd and July 24th, 1991.
Also coming out next week are Rhino Record’s vinyl reissues of Nothing’s Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual. Both are being released on high quality 180 gram vinyl. This is the second time Ritual has recieved the 180 gram vinyl treatment, but I believe it is the first time for Nothing’s Shocking. These are must haves for vinyl afficinacondos, and die hard Jane’s fans alike.
Edit: The non limited-edition “slipcase” version of the Cabinet of Curiosities box set is due May 5th.
The NINJA 2009 tour is heading to England. Jane’s Addiction and Nine Inch Nails will play the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England on July 14th and the O2 Arena in London, England on July 15th. Presale for both shows is this Tuesday, April 14th at 5pm local time at NIN.com. Jane’s website has yet to post any presale info for these shows. Regular tickets go on sale this Friday, April 17th.
