Trent and Dave

After compiling a list of FAQ, the most popular inquiry on Twitter has been, "When are we gonna get tour dates?" Well those are coming SOON! Right now we are in high gear routing the upcoming tour with NIN and as soon as we have a confirmed tour, you will know. Trust me... It's not like we have the dates and are holding them hostage... We want you to come! I can't think of a better way to start up again then a tour with the original four members of Jane's and NIN.

The original Jane's line up: After many years of different versions of Jane's Addiction, Eric Avery has re-claimed his position. We have had the honor of working with some great bass players over the years... Flea, Martyn Le Noble and Chris Chaney... But the Jane's sound was never complete without Eric. With Eric holding down the bottom, the Jane's rhythm section is once again complete. It's almost as if he and Perk live together symbiotically, to create a singular overwhelming sonic onslaught that ebbs and flows like a musical ocean. Perk and Avery not only bring out the best in each other, their ability to lock and weave with one another challenges and inspires me as a guitarist.

NIN/JA: Since our reformation, we have been spending a lot of time with Trent in the rehearsal studio and in the recording studio, working on new stuff, addressing some old stuff and more importantly, creating a friendship and working relationship. It's rare that touring partners have an opportunity to spend so much time together creatively before a tour. Regardless of the collaborative outcome our time with Trent has brought forth a new focus and sense of purpose that we plan to share with you on a nightly basis. NIN and Jane's are vastly different bands, for sure, but we have always had a connection as a result of our time together on Lolla One and various shows together. NIN/JA shows have always been "events" more than anything. Back in the day, Jane's was winding down as NIN was taking off. Our musical lives crossed each other at a very important time in music. A time where artistry and live performance meant something more. A time when the corporate structures took notice of the value in what was happening, but hadn't yet destroyed it. Touring with NIN is an invitation for us to re-capture that spirit that was at a time, inspiring, dangerous and emotionally compelling, as they have always maintained the same integrity that brought me to love music in the first place.


Jane's Addiction and Nine Inch Nails have officially announced (some of?) their previously-discussed tour together. Kicking off in West Palm Beach, Florida in May, the two alt-giants will hit the NYC-area in June with shows in Jersey at the Tweeter Center (June 5) and PNC Bank Arts Center (June 6) and in NY at Jones Beach (June 7) (NOT JUNE 26). The two bands have nothing scheduled on June 8th. Please let that be a TBA show at Madison Square Garden. If not, why?

Jane's Addiction will also probably be at SXSW in March, and though neither band listed it in the announced dates, they are also both playing Sasquatch in Washington in May. NIN is also playing Bonnaroo in June, and I think it's safe to say that Jane's Addiction will be playing Lollapalooza in August.

Perry Farrell is also playing SXSW solo, and is listed on the Coachella lineup.

Pretty sure they either went or are going straight to the gym after the session pictured above.

I forgot how much I used to love that song. Such a face melter! Broken is one of my favorite pieces of his work, no doubt.

no janes here in chitown? that means they don't want us to take janes for granted and so we'll have to catch them headlining at lolla.

Now if Journey would just get back together and do a tour with Loverboy, I'd be a happy man.

It appears that Dave has given up on PRS and returned to the land of Ibanez.

This is amazing, a whole NIN-JA weekend in NJ and NY, although I would of liked a Garden show that is completely unlikely now since they are playing Holmdel and Long Island, but I will still make it to atleast two of the local shows

Posted by Steve | March 4, 2009 2:54 PM

No NYC dates just the 'burbs.

Reznor's strange exile from Madison Square Garden (following 4 sold out tour stops there between 1994 to 2005) continues.

MSG is probably one of the only US arenas always sure to sell out (lets not forget the Fragile tour when Long Island was canceled due to low ticket sales right after a sold out show ar MSG).The burbs do not have as many NIN fans as the city.

Trent with the tattooed reality show loverboy-Niiiice!

why does anyone play Jones Beach? it's a bitch and a half to get to and there's no beer. fuck Jones Beach

nin should come back to hammerstein. they were fucking AMAZING there in "05

I bet they'll add a date at the Garden or something. one of the best show's i've ever seen was the fragile tour with A Perfect Circle at the Garden in like, 2000.

These venues are lame. NIN is meant to have a GA crowd. Some have GA, but are small.

monday is open for MSG? they probably won't announce that until Jones beach sells out.

Posted by Anonymous | March 5, 2009 11:07 AM

i doubt the 8th is open for MSG. you really think they'll play six nights in a row? that would be quite agressive.

Posted by Anonymous | March 5, 2009 11:21 AM

It is wacked how bands like Depeche Mode and the Cure always have MSG and NYC in their schedule while NIN can ignore it for 3 straight tours.

But here is a nice memory of NIN at MSG from the Fragile tour

Posted by Anonymous | March 5, 2009 12:50 PM AREN'T the only Ca shows!! I mean seriously, the closest they're coming is Mountain View?!?! Please Trent, Arco Arena in Sacramento, you were here 3 months ago! Come to the capital!!

Posted by AT_Rez | March 8, 2009 11:33 PM

BTW-Dave Navarro is one of the best guitarists we have -He is hardly an embarrassment!!!! His personal life is his, leave it BE! If he could possible find one woman who is NOT a skank and is not a porn queen or out for his money in LA then maybe he wouldnt have to lower his standards so much! One day he will surprise you, maybe he already has!!!

Posted by maggie | March 12, 2009 9:12 AM

This concert is HUGE! I will be there in W. Palm! I am in Melbourne, Fl. Bring it back around to Florida for round 2!!!!!

Posted by Heather | April 29, 2009 9:07 PM

Way to join the rest of us Heather. May I suggest laying off the acid?

Posted by Venkman | April 29, 2009 9:26 PM

I wish I could be in the band as a tamborine chick, just so I could be with Perry and the gang.

Posted by Pretty P | May 7, 2009 1:37 PM

What is up with Jane's Addiction playing the Besatie Boy slot? That would be fantastical. Will be missing the bboys this year truly.
