Jane’s Addiction at the John Anson Ford Theater – Exclusive Webisode Premiere
In October of this year, Jane’s Addiction returned to play at the John Anson Ford Theater in Los Angeles for the first time since performing seven sold out shows at the venue in 1989 to promote their classic first studio album, ‘Nothing’s Shocking.’ Below is an exclusive premiere of a brand-new webisode documenting the group’s historic return to the John Anson Ford Theater.
In the webisode, singer Perry Farrell explains the significance of the return: “The John Anson Ford Theater is definitely not just another show,” he says. “I remember setting up Stephen Perkins [outside the theater in 1989] to do drum circles and kids would just hang out in the parking lot with him.”
The clip contains scenes of Jane’s rehearsing their current single ‘Underground’ during soundcheck, as well as footage of Perkins leading a new drum circle with fans directly outside the venue — just like he did 22 years ago.
Jane’s Addiction are nominated for Comeback of the Year in the 2011 Loudwire Music Awards. If you’d like to vote for them, click here. Check out the exclusive premiere of the aforementioned webisode below:
