Jane’s Addiction have announced a surprise, intimate show in London, set for later this month. Find details below.

The ‘90s alt-rock icons will now be kicking off their upcoming UK and European run of shows with an opening night at the intimate Bush Hall venue in Shepherds Bush on May 23.

The new show will now be the first show of the tour, and will take place ahead of their two previously announced shows in London – set to take place at the Roundhouse in Camden on May 27 and 29.

From there, the scheduled run of tour dates will continue with shows in Glasgow and Manchester, before heading overseas for shows in Hamburg, Cologne, Paris, Dublin and Luxembourg.

Tickets for the new show at Bush Hall went on sale at 1pm on Friday (May 10), and you can visit here for any remaining tickets. Find all headline tour dates below.

Later this month, the Perry Farrell-led band will make their return to the UK for a headline slot at Bearded Theory festival in Derbyshire on May 25.

The dates lined up for this year mark the band’s first in the country in eight years – with them last performing in the UK back in 2016.

“Tonight the Jane’s camp is over the moon, as we’re finally able to announce UK, European headline, and festival shows. It has been far too long- my Jane’s Addiction family,” said Farrell of the new tour dates. “We can’t wait to see your faces again, (well look at you).. singing songs, and soaring to the moon in a new rocket. Togetherness- roll on 2024!”

The newly-announced gig at Bush Hall comes after the London venue has come under threat in recent months, and earlier this year revealed that it needed to raise £42,000 through crowdfunding to prevent it from losing its music status.

The iconic independent West London venue has hosted gigs over the last 23 years by the likes of REM, Amy Winehouse, Florence & The Machine, Adele, The Killers and Nick Cave. It was also the venue for Kings Of Leon’s first UK show in 2006.

In March organisers revealed they were just four months away from “making a hideous decision” about whether to cease hosting live music events. It warned that if it were to lose its music status, “the loss will impact on local, national and international communities.”

On its Crowdfunder page, the venue said it has been left “sitting in the red month on month” for several reasons caused by the post-pandemic economy. “The marketplace and audience perspective has dramatically changed, compounded by the cost of living crisis with declining per head spend, spiralling utility and insurance costs and the end of the fixed-rate mortgage,” they said. “This leaves us with devastatingly low margins across the sector.

Bush Hall added that they’d also suffered from a 24.5 per cent drop in live music bookings in 2023, and the news arrived shortly after Music Venue Trust shared a report into the state of the sector for 2023 – describing the year as the “most challenging” yet after seeing 125 UK venues abandon live music and that over half of them close permanently.

As well as being some of their first shows since their mammoth tour with Smashing Pumpkins last year, the new 2024 tour dates will also be the first run of European shows since Eric Avery rejoined the line-up last August.

The news came as the frontman teased that new music was on the way last year, and the classic line-up was reinstated for the first time since Avery left touring in 2010.

If the new music turns out to be a full LP, it will be their first new music since the 2011 studio album ‘The Great Escape Artist’. In the 12 years since the album was released, the band have shared a number of live records in recent years, as well as the standalone single ‘Another Soulmate’ in 2013.

Last year, the band debuted a new song called ‘True Love’ during a live show in California.
