Jane's Addiction are in talks to continue their "relapse" reunion beyond a headlining appearance at the Coachella festival and a warm up show for that event on April 26th in Santa Barbara.
"They are in discussions about forming a tour," said Aaron Cohen, who is working with Perry Farrell on the singer's ongoing Jubilee projects. "Perry and Dave [Navarro] are very passionate about making it happen."
The outing likely would kick off in late spring and run into the summer, Cohen said.
Farrell's management office confirmed Tuesday (March 20) that the band is working on possibly putting together other shows.
Jane's Addiction's gig at the Santa Barbara Bowl will be the band's first performance since December 8, 1997, when the group (minus original bassist Eric Avery, and with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea) played the final show of what Farrell dubbed a "relapse tour."
The two April shows will feature the relapse lineup Farrell guitarist Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and Flea. Opening at the Santa Barbara show will be Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante.
Cohen said he was unsure who will play bass if a full tour becomes a reality. The Chili Peppers are writing the follow-up to 1999's Californication, and a band spokesperson said Flea would not be available for a tour with Jane's.
Navarro told MTV News earlier this month that he was excited
about Jane's Addiction performing at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 28 in Indio, California.
"It's going to be fantastic," he said. "I'm hoping it will go into more
shows and be a tour, but we're really excited about it."
Navarro is wrapping up his long-in-the-works solo album and book, the latter of which is about "a year in the life of my house and everybody who came over to my house from that year."
Meanwhile, Farrell recently finished work on his solo debut. A release date has not been set for the as-yet-untitled disc.
