Band axe NME/Radio 1 Stage slot after singer fails to recover in time

Video: Jane's Addiction At Reading Ahead Of Their No Show

Jane's Addiction have cancelled their Leeds Festival show tonight (August 28) due to singer Perry Farrell's illness.

The band had been set to headline the NME/Radio 1 Stage at the Reading Festival last night, but cancelled at the last minute. They cited the severe swelling of singer Perry Farrell's (pictured right) vocal chords as the reason for the drop-out, and have now confirmed they won't make it to Leeds either.

Crystal Castles, who had been set to play before Jane's Addiction tonight at Leeds, will now headline the tent.

Last night the band's guitarist Dave Navarro (pictured above) announced the cancellation from the stage. The band said in a statement today:

This morning in London his doctor determined that Perry Farrell's vocal condition remains unchanged from last night. Farrell has been ordered to not use his voice until further notice for risk of vocal damage. His condition remains day to day.



It continues:

Again Jane's Addiction wishes to convey their sincere apologies to the fans who had been looking forward to their scheduled performances at Reading and Leeds.



Pulp and The Strokes will co-headline the Main Stage at Reading this evening.
