November 26 [12:45 EDT] -- Jane's Addiction has a particularly interesting guest opening up for them over the holiday weekend: Snoop Doggy Dogg.
Snoop will open for Jane's Friday and Monday at the band's homecoming shows in Los Angeles at the Universal Amphitheater.
The Snoop-Perry Farrell connection goes back to this past summer when Snoop was featured as one of the headlining artists on Farrell's Lollapalooza tour.
"Everybody loves Snoop you know," Farrell told MTV News last weekend before hitting the stage with Jane's at Farrell's annual ENIT get-together. "We tried to do it, and we keep every day going, 'So did you get a hold of Snoop? Is he gonna do this?' And I hear '80% for sure' that was 3 days ago... Now, it's 98%, 'cause you know what? We got the same booking agent too, so he's not a moron." [1MB QuickTime]
Apparently that booking agent was able to seal the deal as Snoop is now 100% confirmed to share
the stage with Jane's this weekend.
MTV News will have a full behind-the-scenes report from this year's ENIT festival on this week's edition of "The Week In Rock," which you can catch at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
