NME.com conducted an interview with the reunited original lineup of JANE'S ADDICTION when the band performed in London, England earlier in the month. Watch the four-minute clip HERE.
JANE'S ADDICTION canceled all of its previously announced Australian tour dates because drummer Stephen Perkins was admitted to the infectious disease ward at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles for treatment of an infection in his elbow.
The six-concert Australian run was scheduled to begin July 25 in Byron Bay and conclude with an August 1 show in Perth.
JANE'S ADDICTION had been on their first world tour in over 17 years and had just returned to Los Angeles from a successful European leg when the mysterious infection was discovered after Perkins noticed severe swelling and pain building in his elbow.
Fans are being asked not to worry as a full recovery is expected over the next few weeks.
JANE'S ADDICTION's sole remaining reunion tour date is the August 7 headlining gig at Farrell's own Lollapalooza.
