Janes Addiction have been forced to cancel their Australian tour after percussionist Stephen Perkins was admitted to the Infectious Disease Ward at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles for treatment of an infection in his elbow.

Perkins is expected to make a full recovery from the infection, but will be held at the hospital for a few days while anti-biotic treatment continues.

The infection was discovered after Perkins noticed severe swelling and pain building in his elbow.

The band’s Australian tour was due to start on Saturday (July 25).
