Late last week, Dave Navarro let slip via the Jane's Addiction website that the band will be playing an intimate show “for the fans” at an undisclosed Hollywood venue.
Well, that venue's been disclosed. On Twitter about an hour ago, Navarro announced, “I'll be giving away some tickets to see Jane's at the Roxy on Friday a little later today.”
This only days after the band announced it's returned to the studio with its new lineup, which places former Guns N' Roses member Duff McKagan on
drums bass (whoops). Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand) will be producing the as yet untitled new album, which is due out in 2011.
We'll add more information as it arises. After the jump, Navarro's original statement about this particular gig.
We in Jane's Addiction have done several intimate LA shows over the past year or so… Little places with 100 or so tickets set aside for the fans. It was tough for a lot of fans to get in even after waiting all day for entry. With all of our friends and family in LA, it's sometimes hard to accommodate everybody. Well it looks like we are doing another show and we have decided to make this show an event that is mainly for the fans. We are going to strip back the guest list, inviting only our immediate loved ones and let the majority of tickets be made available to the people who have given us so much over the years, the fans.
