The Sterling Spoon Anniversary Tour brought Jane’s Addiction home to Lollapalooza last night. The festival founded by frontman Perry Farrell celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and the band was joined by two special guests at last night’s performance: Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello on “Mountain Song,” and Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin for closer “Jane Says.”
Jane’s Addiction last played the main stage at Lollapalooza’s flagship Chicago event in 2009. Earlier this month, Farrell made headlines complaining about the EDM music that’s become a staple of the festival’s annual lineup.
Red Hot Chili Peppers followed with Saturday’s headlining set on the Samsung stage, including a respectful nod in the form of a Jane’s Addiction cover.
