Jane’s Addiction Sell Out UK Shows Then Head for Europe

Jane’s Addiction Return To The UK For Their First Headline Tour In Eight Years With All Other Shows Now Sold Out. The Legendary Band Will Also Be Headlining Bearded Theory Festival This Weekend.

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. 

The band will be returning to the UK and Europe for their first set of headline dates in Europe in over eight years. The band will also headline the wonderful Bearded Theory festival at Catton Park, Derbyshire on the 24th May 2024, tickets on sale for that now, HERE

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
