Jane's Addiction Reunion Gig

Original Jane's Addiction Lineup To Reunite For Gig Tonight (10/23) in L.A.

Jane's Addiction
There has been some speculation online about a secret Jane's Addiction show this week. Well, there is no need to speculate... Jane's Addiction will be performing tonight (Thursday, October 23), at La Cita Bar (336 South Hill Street) in downtown Los Angeles. The night is hosted the band's friend, artist Shepard Fairey. This will be the first Jane's Addiction show in years with the original lineup of frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro bassist Eric Avery and drummer Stephen Perkins.

Cita Bar is pretty damned small, too

Still not regretting move from LA to SF, but this show will be sweet, and a shit show.

Their latest album wasn't anything special, but it'd be killer to see them rock out the older tunes at an LA bar.

When was the last time Eric Avery played with them too? That's fucking sweet! I just remember their new bass player and then Flea before that but I wasn't sure that Eric had ever played with them again after their initial breakup. Would love to see that.

Caught them on one of the last traveling Lolla's before it settled down in Grant Park. Perry is something else in person :) Not many men can rock pink leather chaps and make it work I must say.

I'm not hating on Jane's Addiction by any means, but Perkins is a ridiculously sick drummer in the context of Banyan.

Man I would love to see this. Wish they would release some older live stuff one of these days.

I haven't seen these guys since Lollapalooza '92...sounds like the happenings of great show in a killer environment.

They should call the Reunion Gig "Jane's Relapse".

Awesome! Very cool that Avery is back with Jane's. I believe 100% in chemistry and having all the original members in any band is a great thing. Coming Down the Mountain!!!

"Pretty crappy name for a band, I must say"

Officially the dumbest quote I have ever read on jambase. Nice work mattland, you should feel proud.
