PERRY FARRELL Explains SATELLITE PARTY Concept

Former JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell recently spoke to Billboard.com about his new music/theater project, SATELLITE PARTY, featuring former EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. The group, which is competed by NO DOUBT bassist Tony Kanal and percussionist Gabriele Corcos, will play next month's revived Lollapalooza festival.

"It's about a group of artists; fine artists, filmmakers, street performers and musicians," Farrell told Billboard.com of the concept. "They hang out and put on these crazy parties. One of the crazy parties turns into a full riot and the guy who organizes them gets hurt and sent to the hospital.

"There, he meets this beautiful night nurse," he continued. "While listening to the radio together in the evenings as he's recuperating, he gets a vast visitation of energy through the radio, which is pretty much an invitation to a satellite party. Their souls leave, as do other souls on earth, because that certain station pulls them up to a party with a galaxy of stars."
