JANE'S ADDICTION Returns To Hollywood For Unique Shows

September 19, 2011

The idea of big bands playing small rooms is always a special experience for the fans, but for JANE'S ADDICTION, their special engagements that have them partnering with Citi in September and October to launch their newest offering "The Great Escape Artist", will also take them back to re-play some of their early classic shows in legendary venues. On Monday, October 3 and Tuesday, October 4, the alternative rock pioneers will perform at Hollywood's historic John Anson Ford Theatre where in April of 1989 they completed a series of sold-out shows for their ground-breaking debut album "Nothing's Shocking" (originally released in August 1988).

These dates for JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass are a part of a one-of-a-kind series of two-night stands that will also take place in Chicago at the Metro (where they initially launched "Nothing's Shocking" with two sold-out shows in 1988) and New York (details to be announced).

"In '89 we created a unique atmosphere at John Anson Ford. Back then it became a community and a party. Stephen Perkins even played drums in the parking lot for everyone as they entered the venue," says Navarro. "Now we are going back to play this special L.A. venue and intend on making these shows just as unique."

Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets for the Los Angeles shows beginning Tuesday, September 20 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time through Citi's Private Pass Program.

"The Great Escape Artist" will be released on Tuesday, October 18 via Capitol. For the CD, JANE'S ADDICTION joined forces with producer Rich Costey (MUSE, FRANZ FERDINAND, INTERPOL),with TV ON THE RADIO's Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV ON THE RADIO, YEAH YEAH YEAHS and THE FOALS, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album.

JANE'S ADDICTION parted ways with bassist Duff McKagan (DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) last September after only five months of working together.
