It's been a while since we made great pets -- but Perry Farrell's Porno For Pyros will be making a surprise return during the Welcome To Rockville Festival at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida this Sunday, May 22 -- replacing Jane's Addiction's headlining slot due to guitarist Dave Navarro's current bout with COVID.

The festival revealed the lineup change today, May 18, saying although they are saddened that Jane’s Addiction will no longer be able to join the Welcome To Rockville party, "we are beyond excited to have Porno For Pyros perform live for the first time in 26 years ON OUR STAGE THIS WEEKEND." Grab your tickets to Rockville right HERE.

Fans will remember the Jane's spin-off -- featuring members Perry Farrell and drummer Stephen Perkins as well as the addition of guitarist Peter DiStefano and bassist Martyn LeNoble -- which surfaced following Jane's' first split in 1992 by the group's first single, "Pets," and their subsequent 1997 fan favorite, "Tahitian Moon."

In a message announcing the one-off appearance, Farrell told fans, "although we are blue that Jane’s cannot be with you at this time due to Dave’s long bout with COVID, I am still coming to Daytona, bringing to you for the first time in 26 years Porno For Pyros." Farrell says this iteration will feature himself, Perkins, DiStefeno, and uber-bassist Mike Watt, best known for his tenure with Minutemen, fIREHOSE, and more. "We’ll play some Jane’s songs for you as well," adds Farrell.

Jane's Addiction is also scheduled to hit the road with The Smashing Pumpkins, heading out on their 32-date joint SPIRITS ON FIRE TOUR kicking off on October 2 in Dallas, TX, and finishing up on November 19 in Los Angeles, CA at the famed Hollywood Bowl. Grab tickets for the SPIRITS ON FIRE TOUR HERE.
