JANE’S ADDICTION Forced To Cancel READING Festival Appearance

Alternative rock pioneers JANE’S ADDICTION were forced to cancel their appearance at the Reading festival earlier tonight (Saturday, August 27) because frontman Perry Farrellwas suffering from a sore throat.

“Although Farrell was treated earlier in the day by top London physicians and had his heart set on trying to perform under any circumstance, in the end he was completely unable to produce any sound vocally,” reads a statement issued by the festival organizers. “JANE’S ADDICTION would like to deeply apologize to the fans for any inconvenience.”

It is not presently clear if JANE’S ADDICTION will perform at the Leeds festival tomorrow night (August 28).

JANE’S ADDICTION‘s new album “The Great Escape Artist”, will be released on October 4. For the CD, JANE’S ADDICTION joined forces with producer Rich Costey (MUSE, FRANZ FERDINAND, INTERPOL), with TV ON THE RADIO‘s Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV ON THE RADIO, YEAH YEAH YEAHS and THE FOALS, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album.
