Jane's Addiction reveals final leg of "Escapists" run
Alt-rockers Jane's Addiction have unveiled the final leg of their "Theatre of Escapists Tour," which will finish up on the West Coast this fall.
The rock outfit, comprised of frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Chris Chaney, are in the midst of a summer leg, which continues Wednesday (8/8) in Syracuse, NY.
Since last check, another six stops have been tacked on to the itinerary, beginning with an Oct. 17 show in Santa Cruz, CA, and finishing up with a hometown performance in Los Angeles, though that date has yet to be confirmed.
The "Escapists" outing merges music and immersive theater at most stops, with local talent filling lobbies of theaters across the country to entertain concertgoers before the show.
Jane's Addiction released "The Great Escape Artist," produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Nine Inch Nails), in October via Capitol Records. The effort, which marks the band's first studio release in eight years, peaked at No. 12 on The Billboard 200 and follows 2003's gold-certified "Strays."
On Saturday (8/4), Jane's Addiction performed a sold-out show at Chicago's Aragon Ballroom. The Lollapalooza afterparty before approximately 4,000 fans also featured Franz Ferdinand, Skream and Benga, Ume and DJ Mom Jeans (aka Danny Masterson), as well as theater actors throughout the venue to keep up with the "Escapists" theme.
Farrell founded Lollapalooza in 1991.
