Jane’s Addiction To Return To Intimate Club Shows; Delay Album

The following was sent out by Jane’s Addiction’s official fan mailing list.  Note the Great Escape Artist is now due out on October 18:


On November 23 and 25, 1988, alternative rock pioneers JANE’S ADDICTION took to the stage of Chicago’s legendary Metro—the city’s destination for exciting new music–to launch their seminal, ground-breaking album Nothing’s Shocking.  On September 24 and 25, 2011, frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass, will return to the venue partnering with Citi to launch their newest offering, THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, now due out Tuesday, October 18 via Capitol.

These Chicago dates mark the start of a one-of-a-kind series of two-night stands that will also take place in New York and Los Angeles. Citi® cardmembers will have access to presale tickets for the Chicago Metro shows beginning Tuesday, September 6th at 10AM central time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. For complete presale details including exclusive VIP packages, custom launch show merchandise and unique opportunities to interact with the band visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

Tickets go on sale for the Chicago Metro shows on Saturday September 10. Keep checking www.citiprivatepass.com, www.JanesAddiction.com and www.facebook.com/JanesAddiction for ticket information on Los Angeles and New York.

The idea of big bands playing small rooms is always a special experience for the fans, but for JANE’S ADDICTION, this will also take them back to re-play some of their early classic shows in legendary clubs. JANE’S 1988 two night stand at the Cabaret Metro for Nothing’s Shocking are still considered by many Chicagoans as some of the greatest rock club shows of all time.

Jane’s Addiction Announces July 2nd Hollywood Show

Jane’s Addiction announced tonight that they will be performing at a special show for the fans on July 2nd in Hollywood. We’ll pass along venue details and ticket info as soon as we can.

Dave Navarro posted the following on his 6767 site:

We in Jane’s Addiction have done several intimate LA shows over the past year or so… Little places with 100 or so tickets set aside for the fans. It was tough for a lot of fans to get in even after waiting all day for entry. With all of our friends and family in LA, it’s sometimes hard to accommodate everybody. Well it looks like we are doing another show and we have decided to make this show an event that is mainly for the fans. We are going to strip back the guest list, inviting only our immediate loved ones and let the majority of tickets be made available to the people who have given us so much over the years, the fans.

This show will be in Hollywood on July 2. Ticket information will be made available soon.

Cinco de Mayo Jane’s Addiction Style (Pt. 1)

This is part 1 in a 4 part article series about our trip out to L.A. to see Jane’s Addiction.  We’re posting one part per day over the next four days.

How do two guys who live near the Great Lakes get out to Los Angeles to see Jane’s Addiction?  By going to North Carolina of course!  Well, that’s at least what Mike and I did.  We met up at the airport in Charlotte, NC for our flight to LAX.  Thanks to a little bit of seat switching, Mike and I were able to sit together.  We were both groggy from lack of sleep, but we were excited at what the day would bring.   We had five and a half hours to talk Jane’s and make our plans for our two-day adventure in L.A.  Of course not all our plans would work out, but neither of us is complaining.  This was the start of an amazing journey.
