Starting February 22, Jane's Addiction will kick off a special run of North American shows—called "Theatre of the Escapists." The shows will bring Jane's Addiction to intimate venues, most of which are classic theatres. The alternative rock pioneers--frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass—are poised to deliver an immersive theatrical experience as only they can. Tickets go on sale Jan. 14.
There will be a special package on JanesAddiction.com where fans can pair up their presale ticket with a high-quality lithograph. The lithograph will be signed by the band and sold only at the JanesAddiction.com presale.
"We chose to play as many of the great theatres that we could find because we wanted to immerse the audience in a unique experience unlike any they have ever seen at a rock show," said Perry Farrell. "Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights. We like orgies, and hope you do too."
Orgies! Who doesn't like an orgy? Well, people who are monogamists and serialists!
