The Welcome to Rockville festival is slated to take place this weekend in Daytona Beach. Foo Fighters previously dropped off the bill and were replaced by Nine Inch Nails. Today, another change took place to the lineup and it’s an interesting one. Swapping one Perry Farrell-fronted band for the other, Porno for Pyros will replace Jane’s Addiction’s Sunday night set. Welcome to Rockville starts on Thursday night and takes place at Daytona International Speedway.

A two-song performance during the Lollapalooza 2020 livestream withstanding, this will be Porno for Pyros’ first proper show since 1998, though setlist.fm lists the band’s last real show together as having taken place in 1998.

According to a statement posted on Welcome to Rockville’s socials, Dave Navarro is dealing with an unannounced condition that caused the cancellation. Read the full statement below.

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. 🤯 🤘

“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…” – Perry Farrell

Sending healing vibes to you Dave Navarro 🖤
