JANE’S ADDICTION Partners With CITI For Unique Launch Shows For ‘The Great Escape Artist’

On November 23 and November 25, 1988, alternative rock pioneers JANE’S ADDICTION took to the stage of Chicago’s legendary Metro — the city’s destination for exciting new music — to launch their seminal, ground-breaking album “Nothing’s Shocking”. On September 24 and 25, 2011, frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass, will return to the venue, partnering with Citi to launch their newest offering “The Great Escape Artist”, now due out Tuesday, October 18 via Capitol.

These Chicago dates mark the start of a one-of-a-kind series of two-night stands that will also take place in New York and Los Angeles. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets for the Chicago Metro shows beginning Tuesday, September 6 at 10 a.m. Central Time through Citi‘s Private Pass Program.

Tickets go on sale for the Chicago Metro shows on Saturday, September 10.

The idea of big bands playing small rooms is always a special experience for the fans, but for JANE’S ADDICTION, this will also take them back to re-play some of their early classic shows in legendary clubs. JANE’S 1988 two-night stand at the Cabaret Metro for “Nothing’s Shocking” are still considered by many Chicagoans as some of the greatest rock club shows of all time.

JANE’S ADDICTION will also team with Citi to offer Citi cardmembers exclusive VIP packages, custom launch-show merchandise and unique opportunities to interact with the band.

JANE’S ADDICTION was represented by entertainment marketing consultant Al Hassas and their manager Peter Katsis.

For “The Great Escape Artist”, 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.

JANE’S ADDICTION recently teamed up with Indaba Music to create a remix contest around “Irresistible Force”.
