According to JanesAddiction.org, JANE'S ADDICTION will play a special show for its fans on July 2 at an as-yet-undisclosed venue in Hollywood, California.
Commented guitarist Dave Navarro: "We in JANE'S ADDICTION have done several intimate L.A. 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 L.A., 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."
JANE'S ADDICTION — singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Duff McKagan — has tapped Rich Costey as producer for the band's next album, tentatively due out in the winter of 2011 on Capitol.
Costey's extensive experience in the studio includes album production for such bands as MUSE and FRANZ FERDINAND as well as having studio credits for engineering, programming and mixing for WEEZER, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, DOVES and JURASSIC 5, among others.
JANE'S ADDICTION — which wrote the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience — is now in Los Angeles working on the new CD, having returned from potent concerts overseas in at the Gelredome in The Netherlands June 9 (with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and GOGOL BORDELLO) and Rock In Rio in Madrid, Spain June 11 (with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and CYPRESS HILL).
JANE'S ADDICTION debuted a brand new song, "Another Soulmate", during an intimate one-off Cinco de Mayo concert on May 5 at Bardot, Hollywood in Hollywood, California. The Corzo-sponsored event marked the official live debut of McKagan.
