HOLLYWOOD-Known for their most unique parties in rock, mixing a fierce musicality with theatrical flair onstage, Jane’s Addiction takes their upcoming North American shows dubbed “Theatre of the Escapists” to more intimate venues in 2012. To support their new album offering, “The Great Escape,” featuring the now-buzzing-at-radio track “Underground,” the alternative rock pioneers–frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass – will bring a more personal performances at all the venues they’ve chosen to showcase their new album.

“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,” says FARRELL.   “Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights.  We like orgies, and hope you do too.”
