Jane’s Addiction to play Rolling Stone Super Bowl Party

According to this article, Jane’s Addiction and The Roots will be playing a special Tailgate Party for the Super Bowl hosted by Rolling Stone on February 5th in Indianapolis.

Rolling Stone has put together an all-star talent roster for the Volkswagen Rock & Roll Fan Tailgate Party just before the Super Bowl on February 5th in Indianapolis, with performances by Jane’s Addiction and the Roots. Joining them on the bill as guest DJ will be ex-Fall Out Boy and current Black Cards member Pete Wentz.

The Tailgate Party follows the previous night’s Rolling Stone concert with LMFAO, Gym Class Heroes, Lupe Fiasco and Cobra Starship.

Beloved for their parties – frontman Perry farrell founded Lollapalooza – their artistic sense and their showmanship, Jane’s Addiction have turned their live show into performance art. At the core, though, is a band of exceptional musicianship, as seen on their critically acclaimed release of last year, The Great Escape Artist.

Just as Jane’s are hailed in the alternative field, the Roots have been widely regarded for years as arguably the greatest live hip-hop band on the planet. Together, the two bands promise to dazzle Indy.
