The new-look Jane’S Addiction will make only their second public appearance since recruiting Duff Mckagan on bass at a top secret, fan-only event in Hollywood next week.
The former Guns N’ Roses star made his official debt as a member of Jane’s Addiction in May when the group performed a fan-only show at tiny Hollywood nightclub Bardot, which doubled as a birthday party for his wife.

He’ll take to the stage again with Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Perry Farrell on 2 July.

Announcing the mystery show on JanesAddiction.org, guitarist Navarro writes, “We… have done several intimate L.A. shows over the past year or so… Little places with 100 or so tickets set aside for the fans. It was tough for a lot of fans to get in even after waiting all day for entry. With all of our friends and family in L.A., it’s sometimes hard to accommodate everybody.

“Well, it looks like we are doing another show and we have decided to make this show an event that is mainly for the fans. We are going to strip back the guest list, inviting only our immediate loved ones, and let the majority of tickets be made available to the people who have given us so much over the years, the fans.”

McKagan replaced original bass player Eric Avery in the reformed Jane’s Addiction line-up earlier this year.
