Watch Jane’s Addiction’s Rockin’ Lollapalooza 2020 Reunion Set

Stop! Jane’s Addiction’s has reunited … for a brief set, anyway. Frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Chris Chaney and drummer Stephen Perkins gathered together for a quick performance on a soundstage for Lollapalooza’s Lolla2020 livestream on Saturday (Aug. 1).

The band was socially distanced for a two-song set on a brightly lit stage, kicking off with mellow “I Would for You” before launching into 1990’s high-energy hit “Stop!” off of their sophomore record, Ritual de lo Habitual.

Lollapalooza founder Farrell has stayed busy during the festival’s first ever virtual event, which went online this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, the first day of the event, Farrell reunited Porno for Pyros for their first performance in more than two decades. Like Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros — who were introduced by MTV VJ Matt Pinfield — rocked out while properly distanced, but they were in a beautiful yard. The band kicked off the acoustic set with their 1993 single “Pets,” then played “Kimberly Austin” from their 1996 album Good God’s Urge.

Farrell also paid tribute to the legendary David Bowie on Saturday afternoon. The Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros rocker sat down with Mike Garson, who played piano and keyboard for Bowie, to reminisce about the celebrated artist. The two men talked about Bowie’s belief that he would die around 69 or 70 — he died at age 69 after a battle with cancer — and the afterlife, before they performed the late icon’s “Ziggy Stardust” with the Kind Heaven Orchestra.
