Jane’s Addiction canceled their appearance at the “Not So Silent Night” in Oakland at the last minute due to Steve Perkins’ father’s illness. Green Day stepped up to replace them. This obviously put tonight’s show in Universal City into question. However according to this post on twitter by Dave Navarro, the band is still planning on performing:
Jane’s show at KROQs Acoustic Christmas tomorrow is on!
Perry Farrell announced earlier today via twitter that Jane’s Addiction have been forced to cancel their Holiday Havoc Las Vegas show due to a family emergency.

Update (12/8): Word is that Steve Perkins’ father is battling cancer. From everyone at JanesAddiction.org, we wish Steve’s family our best. Your fans understand that family comes first.
After Jane’s Addiction was forced to cancel this past weekend’s performances at the Reading and Leeds festivals due to Perry Farrell losing his voice, tonight’s show in London was put into question. Well, Dave Navarro posted this to twitter minutes ago:

Etty Farrell re-tweeted the following from Tony Hawk:
Jane’s Addiction is playing at our next Stand Up For Skateparks fundraiser! It’s like Spicoli getting Van Halen to play at his birthday.
According to the Stand Up For Skateparks website, the next event is Sunday October 17, 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA at the Green Acres Estate from 12-4pm. The site makes no mention of Jane’s yet, so we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
