Jane's Addiction to play reunion show tonight in LA

It's their first gig since NME Awards comeback

Jane's Addiction to play reunion show tonight in LA
Jane's Addiction will play their first reunion show tonight (October 23) since reforming at the NME Awards USA in Los Angeles in April.

Tonight's show will take place at La Cita in downtown Los Angeles and feature the band's original lineup: Perry Farrell; Dave Navarro; Eric Avery and Stephen Perkins.

Since reuniting for the first time in 17 years to receive NME's Godlike Genius Award earlier this year, there has been a lot of speculation about whether a proper reunion would be in the cards. It now appears that it's really going to happen.

"We never know what the future has in store for us; especially with this band," Avery wrote on his blog. "But, at least right now Jane's Addiction has a future that one would have to call somewhat promising. We are a great band."

Speaking to NME.COM earlier this year about the possibility of getting his band back together, Farrell said "I sure would be open for it now. It sounds exciting to me as a listener. I just like to go out with people I think make beautiful music. As I say, we're not making war, we're making music, so how bad could it be?"

Farrell admitted that bringing together the strong personalities of bandmates wouldn't be easy.

"We've got to figure out a common ground," he said. "Jane's Addiction is a very inflammable group -- there's a lot of very strong personalities. But I still think it would be worth it to get Jane's Addiction together because the people and the party that could ensue from that would be so amazing it's worth making up over."

The band are expected to play approximately 10 songs at tonight's largely sold-out gig.
