Stephen Perkins Cancels Jane’s Addiction Show

Jane’s Addiction hastily canceled their appearance at last night’s Live 105’s “Not So Silent Night” concert at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The band said the last-minute cancellation was the due to the fact that drummer Stephen Perkins had to deal with an undisclosed family emergency.

The band’s guitarist Dave Navarro tweeted, “Our prayers are with Stephen and his family.”

Local Bay Area punk heroes Green Day agreed to fill-in for Jane’s Addiction, joining Forence + The Machine, Mumford & Sons, Bush, and Young The Giant.
