Jane's Addiction, Marilyn Manson To Ring In New Year With Joint Tour

Bands to kick off five-date trek December 27 in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

As if New Year's Eve in New York weren't freaky enough, Jane's Addiction and

Marilyn Manson are teaming up for a short co-headlining tour that will have them

ringing in the New Year at Madison Square Garden along with the Used.

The five-date trek will kick off on December 27 with a show at the Palace of

Auburn Hills in Michigan, swing through the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia, the next night and land in New York on the 31st, according to a Capitol

Records spokesperson.

The tour will pick up on January 2 with a show at the Paul E. Tsongas Arena

in Lowell, Massachusetts, and is currently scheduled to wrap up the next night

at the Tweeter Center in Camden, New Jersey. Jane's will complete a European

tour on Wednesday, while Manson is about to head overseas for shows that will

last until December 19.

Jane's performed another of their surprise "flashmob" gigs in central London

on Monday (see "Jane's Addiction Plan To Flashmob Unsuspecting Public"). Alerting fans to the impromptu performance in Covent Garden via a

cell phone text message, the band played a five-song set to several hundred

people holding pink balloons outside the London Transport Museum.

Prior to the Manson dates, Jane's will also pop up at a few radio festivals,

including KPNT St. Louis' Ho Ho Show on December 5 with Deftones, Smile

Empty Soul, Thursday and Thrice; as well as radio shows in Chicago (December 6),

Kansas City, Missouri (December 8), Las Vegas (December 11) and Live 105's Not So Silent Night on December 12 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, where they will share the bill with Rancid, Black Eyed Peas and Black Rebel

Motorcycle Club.

The band will also play radio shows in Atlanta (December 16), KDGE's How the

Edge Been Caught Stealing Christmas on December 19 in Dallas with the Crystal Method and Kill Hannah and KTBZ Houston's Buzzfestivous on December 21.
