Porno For Pyros To Replace Jane’s Addiction At 2022 Lollapalooza Festival

Porno For Pyros will be replacing Jane’s Addiction at this year’s Lollapalooza festival. The band will be taking the stage during the fourth day of the event, which is set to take place at Grant Park in Chicago, IL on July 28-31. This news comes after Porno For Pyros previously replaced Jane’s Addiction at Welcome To Rockville due to guitarist Dave Navarro’s struggles with long COVID.

Jane’s Addiction Guitarist Dave Navarro Has Been Struggling With COVID-19 Symptoms Since December

As previously reported, Jane’s Addiction were forced to cancel their performance at the 2022 Welcome To Rockville festival due to Dave Navarro‘s “long bout with COVID.” Now, the guitarist has issued his own statement, saying that he has been struggling with symptoms since December.

Navarro said the following:

“So yeah, I’m one of the ones who came down with the “long haul covid”. Been sick since December and supposedly will be back to my old self in… nobody knows how long. If there are any of you who are still suffering long after your negative results, I’m just saying you aren’t alone.

The fatigue and isolation is pretty awful but try to spend your time with the ones you love and stay creative. That’s how I’m trying to get through this thing. Also lots of spiritual practices, meditation and yoga have been very helpful. I’ll be ok, just don’t know when. PS I’m not sure why I chose this picture to say all this. 🙄Maybe because who really cares and you gotta find fun somewhere? Or at least some levity.

Love and laughter are wonderful antidotes for a sickness that you really can’t track. Anyway thanks for listening and don’t worry about me. All indicators are pointing to a full recovery at some point! ❤️‍🩹 👩‍⚕️ 🏥 There’s really no more to say on the matter so I’d appreciate not receiving a bunch of DMs or texts.

Not out of disrespect for you guys, I’m just so tired of talking about this, I’m sure you can imagine! Sending you all love and light. Even to those of you who are stoked I’m sick! 😂”

Jane’s Addiction Drop Off 2022 Welcome To Rockville Festival, Porno For Pyros Added

Jane’s Addiction have dropped off of this year’s Welcome To Rockville festival due to Dave Navarro suffering from a “long bout with COVID.” Porno For Pyros will be taking their place on the fourth day of the event. As previously reported, the festival will take place at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL on May 19-22.

Organizers commented:

“While we’re saddened that Jane’s Addiction can no longer join us, we are beyond excited to have Porno For Pyros perform live for the first time in 26 years ON OUR STAGE THIS WEEKEND. 🤯 🤘 Sending healing vibes to you Dave Navarro 🖤”

Perry Farrell added:

“The gang and the government are no different. That makes me 1%. Rockville, although we are blue that Jane’s cannot be with you at this time due to Dave’s long bout with COVID, I am still coming to Daytona, bringing to you for the first time in 26 years Porno For Pyros Featuring myself, Perry Farrrell, Stephen Perkins, Peter DiStefeno and Mike Watt. We’ll play some Jane’s songs for you as well, but for now let’s recall: My boat’s capsized it’s gonna sink to the bottom. I can see the lights on the shore…”
