Watch: Dave Navarro To Use Flesh Piercing’s For ‘Theatre Of The Escapists’ Suspension Show

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 10, 2012

When Jane’s Addiction announced their Theatre of the Escapists tour, they made no secret that they were searching for something new and fresh. But when the band put out the feelers for people who could do ‘outlandish’ things, no one knew just how far they were planning on taking it, with guitarist Dave Navarro donating his body to the concept.

The band has posted a video of the axeman himself getting pierced and suspended with hooks from chains. So the footage isn’t for the weak stomached. Suspension shows aren’t meant to be pretty but to showcase the discipline and also to give testament to the human body and mind. It’s an artform, albeit a graphic one.

However, compared to the rock star life Navarro has led, from his heroin addiction, to marrying Carmen Electra, this might not even be the most painful thing he’s done. The tour is in support of the band’s forthcoming release The Great Escape Artist, which, according to producer Perry Farrell, will be finished ‘within a six month window’, or so says Loudwire
