Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction Summer 2009 Tour Dates

Monday, 09 March 2009

For many of us, this is something we’ve fantasized about of for years. A tour with two bands that have a similar fanbase, but in all actuality, have almost nothing in common, and for them to share a stage on the same night just seems like a close-out deal at Best Buy you just can’t pass up. Hey, it worked for Slayer and Marilyn Manson, so why not Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction? The one good thing about this tour is no goth kids are going to get sacrificed in the parking lot by some crazy Slayer fans.

The tour will begin May 8, 2009, in the cozy digs of West Palm Beach, FL, and will be the first time sharing a stage since the historic debut of the Lollapalooza festival in 1991. The genesis of the upcoming tour came about in late 2008 after NIN's Trent Reznor was tapped to produce Jane's first recordings since reforming. 

Not to mention, for the first time in seventeen years, the original lineup of Jane's Addiction will tour—vocalist Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery and drummer Stephen Perkins. The possibility of reforming first took shape in April 2008 when the musicians performed and accepted the Godlike Genius Award bestowed on them by N.M.E. Magazine at their US Awards ceremony. The band then tested the waters with small, secret shows around the Los Angeles area and the tremendous excitement from the shows lead to their decision to tour again.

So go grab some tickets because this will most likely go down in history as something pretty special.
