About Janes Addiction
Jane’s Addiction is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band’s original line-up featured lead singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery and percussionist Stephen Perkins. After breaking up in 1991, Jane’s Addiction briefly reunited in 1997 and again in 2001, both times with Avery declining to participate. In 2008, the band’s “classic” line-up, featuring Avery, reunited and embarked on a world tour. Avery subsequently left the band in early 2010 as the group began work on new material.
Jane’s Addiction was one of the first bands to emerge from the early 1990s alternative rock movement, and gain both mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States. Their initial farewell tour launched the first Lollapalooza which has since become a perennial alternative rock festival. As a result, Jane’s Addiction became icons of what Farrell dubbed the “Alternative Nation.” The band was ranked 35th on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” list.
The band released a live album, Live in NYC, on July 8, 2013, recorded during the “Theatre of Escapists” tour. On August 8, 2013, the band released a stream of a new single, “Another Soulmate”.
Jane’s Addiction was awarded with the 2,509th star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame on October 30, 2013. Their star is located at 6436 Hollywood Boulevard.
In January 2014, Perry Farrell stated that Jane’s Addiction is on hiatus, and he is currently working on a new musical, “Kind Heaven.”
Jane’s Addiction performed their debut album, Nothing’s Shocking, at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on May 8, 9 and 10 2014, and again at O2 Academy Brixton on August 20 and O2 Apollo Manchester on August 21.
