Legendary alt rock pioneers Jane’s Addiction bring their Theatre of the Escapists Tour to The Mann August 15th. Joining them will be special guest South African rave-rap duo Die Antwoord. Great bands break rules, but legends write their own. Jane’s Addiction have actually written the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs such as “Been Caught Stealing,” “Jane Says,” & “Stop” coupled with a cinematic live experience. When Jane's Addiction came along, they merged alternative and rock like no one before, becoming the first alternative rock band, creating a new sound and attitude. Perry Farrell stands out as one of music's most forward-thinking and enigmatic frontmen, and his vocals soar with vibrancy, vulnerability and vitality. Guitar god Dave Navarro conjures simultaneously psychedelic and epic riffs. Stephen Perkins' tribal stomp remains hypnotic and transfixing. In 2010, Jane's Addiction began writing songs for the new album. By 2011, recording began on what would become The Great Escape Artist, an October 2011 release on Capitol, to be supported with a worldwide tour in 2012. Jane’s Addiction is Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins & Chris Chaney.
