PERRY FARRELL Discusses THE SATELLITE PARTY

Former JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell recently spoke to RollingStone.com about THE SATELLITE PARTY, his new musical-theater piece, which is scheduled to debut at Lollapalooza on July 23 and 24 at Chicago's Grant Park

THE SATELLITE PARTY features Farrell's collaborations with an eclectic cast of musicians, including RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' Flea and John Frusciante, U.K. electronic duo HYBRID; BLACK EYED PEAS' Fergie. Guest musicians include NEW ORDER bassist Peter Hook, former PORNO FOR PYROS guitarist Peter DiStefano and former EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt.

This collaborative spirit reflects the musical's storyline. "It's about a collective of artists — fine artists, musicians and dancers — that do flash mobs," Farrell said. "A riot occurs at one of the flash mobs because they're illegal, and the chief musician ends up in the hospital, where he meets the lovely night nurse. He asks for a radio to be brought into the hospital, chats up the nurse, gets a crush on her, and they listen to the radio together. And then one night there's a vast visitation of energy through the radio that is actually a summons to come to the satellite party in the heavens."
