Jane’s Addiction Reunite For Lollapalooza Livestream Performance

Discussing the cancellation and postponement of live shows amid the coronavirus pandemic, Perry recently told Kerrang!, “I believe live music will weather the storm because it’s all about adapting. A week before I was supposed to go out with Satellite Party, I went back to speak to the record company because I hadn’t heard from them and there were tumbleweeds in the parking lot and locks on the doors. Nobody had told me they’d bailed out of town. It was not a stillborn, though, because I got on a bus and went out and performed what I could until I ran out of the money I was sinking into it, just to have the privilege of performing in front of people. I did it again with [2019 solo album] Kind Heaven… I lost so much money that my wife was mad at me.
“Live music will endure, and I want to put together the best party to make people happy and entertain them. It doesn’t always have to be a gigantic spectacle either. If you put together a quality gathering, it guarantees you eternity.”
