Jane’s Addiction Reunites & Perry Farrell Covers David Bowie For Lollapalooza’s ‘Lolla2020’
Jane’s Addiction reunited to perform for Lolla2020. The band’s frontman Perry Farrell also delivered a David Bowie cover for the Lollapalooza livestream event, which spans the same weekend the famed festival was set to take place but was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jane’s Addiction reunion came on the heels of the Farrell-led Lolla2020 Porno For Pyros reunification. Performing from their native Los Angeles, Jane’s Addiction — guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Chris Chaney, drummer Stephen Perkins and Farrell — delivered “I Would For You” from their 1987 semi-live self-titled debut. It marked the first time Jane’s Addiction played the song in eight years during just the band’s second performance in three years, as per Rolling Stone. The legendary rockers also offered up “Stop!” from their 1990 LP, Ritual de lo Habitual.
Additionally, Farrell — who co-founded Lollapalooza and is a co-host of Lolla2020 — teamed up with longtime David Bowie keyboardist Mike Garson for a piano-backed rendition of Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust.” The two musicians also discussed the iconic artist’s legacy.
