Frontman Perry Farrell is very keen to bring the reformed rockers over to the UK for the August festivals...
Speaking exclusively to NME.COM this afternoon, Farrell said he had not been formally approached but would be very keen.
“Would I be interested in playing Reading? Sure. The final week in August might just fit in [with the end of Jane’s Addiction tour in US],” he said. “I haven’t heard anything about it but who knows – this is how these things happen.”
“It was sensational. It was too short. I want to do more,” he said. “It came about as an invitation from the people who produce the Coachella festival to perform. We had a great time, we did it. It took us a month-and-a-half for the production. In a month-and-a-half you don’t want to end up playing for an hour-and-a-half because it’s not worth your time. So we put out a few feelers to see the temperature of the other promoters around the country and it seems now we have a summer tour, but in America only.”
Farrell added: “As far as coming to England and performing, I only know I will be coming. My plan is to tour for the next year, year and a half. I can’t say positively but I’d love it to be with Jane’s Addiction.”
The Lollapalooza organiser also insisted his postponed Jubilee concert in the Israeli desert would still go ahead.
He said: “We’re going to do it. What happened was bad timing, inviting people there [as the Isreal Palestine crisis was hotting up]. I’ve come to conclude – does trouble really dictate our lives or do we dictate and try and free it of trouble. So I want to go in there now.
“I’ve gone so far as to secure miles and miles of desert in the Judean Wilderness, about 15 miles from Masada, right over the mountain you are down by the Dead Sea.”
He has not yet settled on a date.
