The Pulse of Radio reports that a full-blown JANE'S ADDICTION reunion tour — the third in just over a decade — is in the works for later this year, according to HardDrive Radio. There's no word yet on who will be in the band lineup or when exactly the trek will start, but the news follows on the heels of two low-key club gigs the group did in Los Angeles this past October and November. Those were the original band's first full concerts together in well over 15 years. The group, including founding bassist Eric Avery, first reunited for a four-song set at the NME Awards USA last April.
The band has reunited twice before, in 1997 and 2001, but without Avery. RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist Flea, Chris Chaney and Martyn LeNoble all took turns in the lineup.
Singer Perry Farrell has dismissed the possibility of another comeback over the last couple of years, saying in a recent interview that there was as much likelihood of a full-blown reunion "as there being commercial space flights."
