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.

Underground to be the next Jane’s Addiction single from TGEA

According to the following that was sent out via the official Lollapalooza email list, Underground will be the next single from the Jane’s Addiction album The Great Escape Artist:

Lolla Exclusive: Be The First To Download Jane’s Addiction’s New Single

Lollapalooza and Jane’s Addiction share intertwined legacies. With that in mind, Perry and the band have decided that it makes perfect sense that Lolla fans should get a special sneak-peek of the new album.

After eight years, Jane’s Addiction fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief: on Tuesday, October 18th the band’s long-awaited new release The Great Escape Artist is hitting the streets. It was well worth the wait.

Frontman Perry Farrel‘s forward-thinking musical ideas anchor the album while pushing the songs into daring new territory. His iconic vocals soar across the mix, perfectly counter-balanced by guitar god Dave Navarro‘s relentless, psychedelic shred. On drums, Stephen Perkins‘ propulsive tribal stomp is nothing less than hypnotic. Along with a talented creative team, including producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) and TV on the Radio’s multi-instrumentalist Dave Sitek on bass, the new LP blazes brave, new trails for the alt-rock pioneers. Together, these massive talents have architected another timeless record by simply doing what they do best – being real.

The band wanted to treat the Lolla-Nation to a special sneak-peek of the new album, offering a free download of the groundbreaking opening track before it’s released tomorrow. So, without further ado, here’s Jane’s Addiction’s brand new single… Underground.

Lollapalooza returning to Chile, expanding to Brazil in 2012 (Updated)

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Lollapalooza festival, kicking off today at Grant Park in Chicago, IL, festival organizers are set to announce that Lollapalooza is returning to South America in 2012.  Lollapalooza will return to Chile for a two-day festival at Equestrian Club of Santiago on March 31 and April 1, 2012, and then head up to Brazil for the inaugural Lollapalooza Brasil festival the following week from April 7-8, 2012 at the Jockey Club in São Paolo.  No lineups have been announced so far, but I would expect a blend of North and South American artists, similar to what was done with Lollapalooza Chile last year.

Update:  The regular Lollapalooza festival will return to Grant Park in Chicago, IL from August 3-5, 2012.
