According to Etty Farrell and Eric Avery’s twitter feeds, Perry Farrell tore a calf muscle last night during the NIN/JA show in Atlanta, GA last night. The injury happened during Three Days, Jane’s Addiction’s opening song. Perry, the consummate performer, powered through the pain and Jane’s was able to complete their set. Perry has been given the recommendation to stay off his leg for a week. I doubt this will lead to Jane’s canceling any dates, it will just limit what Perry can do on stage. If any dates are canceled, I will let you know.

Trent announced the launch of the NINJA2009.com website next Friday, March 20th on his twitter feed. No word on what is going to be there, but Trent is always good with providing online content to his fans. He also announced new NIN shows in Austin on 5/12 and Mansfield, MA on 6/3. No word on if those are NINJA shows or not. NIN and Jane’s have a previously announced date on 6/3. As soon as I have something concrete, I’ll be sure to post it.
