Jane’s Addiction is playing this weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Clear Channel announced the show will be carried live on clear channel radio stations, and streamed on both iheartradio.com/vegas and facebook.com/iheartradio. Xbox Live subscribers will be able to watch the festival live and in HD via their Xbox 360.
As we reported yesterday, Duff McKagan has left Jane’s Addiction. Duff spent the last month recording a new album with his band Loaded, and maybe the rest of the guys knew what was coming. Today Perry posted the following on his Facebook page:
I met with an inspiring fellow tonight. Someone whom I admire for his creativity, and off beat genius. We listened to passionate music together. I found myself aroused… I can’t tell you who he is. He recommended we listen to Henrik Gorecki The 3rd symphony w/ Dawn Upshaw singing. It overcame me…
Does the band already have someone in mind to fill this important vacancy in the band? It sounds like it:
I love Rich Costey. We are about to add a new collaborator to our team that I met with tonight. This person is a genius, and an innovator. I will tell more in 10 days time…
Perry Farrell revealed via Facebook that this Friday’s show will be at The Roxy Theatre:
Jane’s is heading up to the Sunset Strip. Returning to the location of our first recording; The Roxy this Friday night. I’m serious. There will be some tickets given away through the week. I will get more details tomorrow. I am looking for a local performance artist to startle my friends.
There have been tweets and facebook posting keeping us up to date on the writing process since Jane’s Addiction began work on new material earlier this year. Dave mentioned on his Dark Matter show last night that the band were in the studio yesterday working on pre-production and that no tape rolled. Today however Dave tweeted the following:
Yesterday Perry and Tor Hyams (co-founder of Kidzapalooza) released the following video via Facebook announcing the line up for the 2010 Kidzapalooza stage.
