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.

The lineups of two of the three South American Lollapalooza ’23 shows have been released.  Jane’s Addiction will be playing Lollapalooza Argentina on Saturday, March 18, and Lollapalooza Brasil one week later on Saturday, March 25.

Update 10/26: Jane’s Addiction will be performing on the final night of Lollapalooza Chile ’23, on Sunday, March 19.

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.

Porno For Pyros Live on May 22

Porno For Pyros (yes P4P, that’s not a typo), will be playing their first public concert in over twenty years this Sunday in Daytona, FL, co-headlining the final night of the Rockville Festival, along with Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins.  Jane’s Addiction was originally scheduled for this show, but Perry and co. had to pivot after Dave Navarro reportedly contacted COVID.
