Jane's Addiction are set to be inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The band will receive their star on October 30, at a ceremony during which Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters and John Densmore of The Doors will speak. The star will be situated at 6436 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, in front of the Playmates of Hollywood store. The band will then perform an outdoor show in Hollywood as part of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The band play San Manuel Casino in San Bernardino, California tonight (October 24).

At the start of this year, the band's frontman Perry Farrell revealed that he was working on a Jane's Addiction musical, stating that he thinks people are moving away from traditional gigs and festivals as the only way to hear bands performing live.

He revealed his ambitious plan in an interview with Prefix, saying: "My next project is that I'm working on a play, it's a musical. But it's going to be immersive theatre. It's not going to be in a theatre, I'm going to create an environment and the music will be within that environment, and Jane's Addiction will be within that environment."

Discussing his theory about the future of live music, Farrell continued: "There are going to be different environments for people to play music. Musicals make more sense because they're telling stories and they have costumes and something to look at. But it's going to turn into something else. It already is turning into something else. The agony and the frustration is that it's not developed yet."
