Jane's Addiction get intimate

Legendary US rock band announce special one-off intimate show at Bush Hall, London

It’s 8 years since their last fleeting visit in 2014, when they played Download Festival and Kentish Town Forum, but this time around UK punters are being relatively spoilt. Not only are they headlining the excellent Bearded Theory Festival, as well as a further 4 dates in Glasgow, Manchester and London, they have now announced details of a special warm-up show at Bush Hall in London to blow away the cob-webs on Friday 23rd May, the night before their headline slot.

Formed back in 1985, JANE’S ADDICTION are a world renowned, much loved, hugely ahead of their time classic American rock band from Los Angeles, consisting  of vocalist Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Eric Avery. Founded by Farrell and Avery, following the disintegration of Farrell’s previous band PSi Com, Jane’s Addiction’s first release was the stunning, self-titled live album ‘Janes Addiction’ (1987), which lead to two studio albums, ‘Nothing Shocking’ (1988) and ‘Ritual De Lo Habitual’ (1990). The band’s initial farewell tour, in 1991, launched the first Lollapalooza which has since become a perennial alternative rock festival. The band have broken up and reformed (once in 1997 with Flea taking over bass duties for Avery on a one off tour, then in 2001 with Martyn LeNoble and later Chris Chaney on the bass), and in 2003 released the hugely acclaimed ‘Strays’ album, before dissolving again the following year. 2008 saw the band reform and tour the world and in 2011 they released the brilliant ‘The Great Escape Artist’ album (with Chaney on bass again). They have since then  continued to play shows and remain active, when in 2022 Eric Avery returned to the group ahead of a joint tour with The Smashing Pumpkins.
