With the band's "Celebrity Skin" arriving in stores this week, fans can expect Hole to hit the road in the near future, but not in the same way that concertgoers may be accustomed to.
When asked recently if she'll be participating in any of the stage diving antics that she became infamous for the last time around, Hole frontwoman Courtney Love said, "I don't think I can do that anymore. That's one contrived thing. I was watching Shirley (Manson, Garbage singer) actually, and I knew she wanted to."
Love joked about the legal consequences that have squashed such primal concert displays, saying, "I think that's over, and if you watch Court TV... oh forget it." [28.8 RealAudio]
Fans can get a taste of what Hole's approach to the stage this time around may be when the band plays this week's Video Music Awards on Thursday. The band will roll out the title track to "Celebrity Skin,"
and will join a list of performers that includes the Beastie Boys, Marilyn Manson, Master P, Brandy and Monica, the Backstreet Boys, Madonna, and others.
