As this is the 25th anniversary for the Ritual de lo Habitual album, Jane’s Addiction will be performing the album in its entirety at shows later this year. The first confirmed Ritual show is at the 2015 Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin, TX at the Auditorium Shores. The FFF Festival runs from November 6-8th. Jane’s Addiction performs on the night of Saturday, November 7, 2015
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.
