Jane’s Addiction going on theater tour, NJ & Long Island included (2012 dates)
Jane's Addiction at Irving Plaza in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Jane's Addiction resurfaced in 2011 with The Great Escape Artist, their first new album of original material since 2003's Strays. They followed the release of the album with a club tour that included two nights at Irving Plaza. In February and March, they'll head out on another tour, dubbed the "Theatre Of The Escapists" tour, where they plan to hit various theaters in North America with support from Black Box Revelation.
According to a statement from Perry Farrell:
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. Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights. We like orgies, and hope you do too.
That tour hits the NYC-area twice: on March 4 at The Paramount in Huntington, NY and on March 6 at The Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Tickets for the Long Island show go on venue presale Wednesday at 10am with general sale starting Saturday at the same time. Tickets for the NJ show go on sale Saturday at noon.
