Watch Jane's Addiction Reunite for Lollapalooza Live Stream

The Lolla founders bring it back to where it all began

29 years after establishing it as a traveling farewell tour, Jane’s Addiction brought it all back home to Lollapalooza this past weekend.

With the festival going virtual this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jane’s Addiction was one of several bands who delivered a “live” set for the festival's online audience.

The performance was shot in a Los Angeles soundstage and marks the group’s second gig since the end of 2017.

Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins, and Chris Chaney treated the virtual audience to two songs, “I Would For You” off their 1987 eponymous live album, and “Stop!” from their 1991 record Ritual de lo habitual. The performance has since been removed from YouTube, but a talk with with Tommy Lee remains.

Farrell was one of the co-hosts of this weekend’s Lolla2020 livestream and took part in a discussion with longtime David Bowie and Spiders From Mars pianist Mick Garson. The duo discussed Bowie’s legacy and paid tribute to the late musician with a wonderful rendition of “Ziggy Stardust.”

Lolla2020 kicked off with a stunning performance delivered by Chris Cornell’s daughter Toni Cornell. Cornell offered up a socially distant stripped-down version of Pearl Jam’s classic Ten track “Black.”

Throughout the weekend, Lolla2020 treated fans to new and archived sets from over 135 artists including Paul McCartney, Chance The Rapper, OutKast, Metallica, Arcade Fire, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Tom Morello, Cypress Hill, Portugal. The Man, Yungblud, and more.
