After an incredible response to their first set of special "small club" launch shows in Chicago this past weekend, and with high anticipation for next week’s upcoming shows in Los Angeles October 3 & 4—both cities sold out within minutes of their on sales–JANE’S ADDICTION has announced today details for their upcoming New York City engagements. They will perform Monday, October 17 and Tuesday, October 18, at Irving Plaza as part of their third and final pair of shows with Citi to mark the release of their newest offering THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST which will be released that week (October 18).
These dates for JANE’S ADDICTION– frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass—are a part of a one-of-a-kind series of two-night stands that will also take place in Chicago at the Metro (where they initially launched Nothing’s Shocking with two sold-out shows in 1988) and Hollywood’s John Anson Ford Theatre in Los Angeles where they completed a series of sold out shows in 1989.
