CONFIRMED: Jane’s Addiction to cancel Splendour appearance and entire Australian tour due to arm infection

Written by Daniel Clarke on July 23, 2009

In possibly the most disappointing news for Aussie JA fans to date, Music Feeds can now confirm that Jane’s Addiction will be canceling their Splendour in the Grass appearance and all associated Australian side shows.

A source close to the band has said that drummer Stephen Perkins has an arm infection and is currently being treated in a hospital in the US. Having just finished their European tour, the band had travelled home for a day of rest before heading down under. The exact cause of the ailment is still unknown.

Now that this has been confirmed, it puts a mighty damper on festivities in Byron this weekend…

There are definitely a few belligerent souls around the Music Feeds office who were planning on catching the JA sideshow in Sydney next week…

[UPDATE: DAVE NAVARRO has recently tweeted the following:

“Time to address the rumors. Our Australia tour has been canceled. Stephen Perkins has injured his arm and is in the hospital being treated…

He is going to make a full recovery and we are planning on making the dates up as soon as possible. We are extremely sorry to our fans in OZ…

We were looking forward to bringing the band to you and PROMISE to return a.s.a.p. Right now we are focused on supporting Stephen as TBC…

He is mending…

More information to come but we wanted to let you guys know as soon as we could. Again we are very sorry for the delay…

But this is merely a delay, we WILL be back. I will see him later today and will share your well wishes…

STEPHEN PERKINS has tweeted:

in bed- IV is in and healing…]
