Perry Farrell Announces Jane's Addiction 'The Musical'

Perry Farrell Announces Jane's Addiction 'The Musical' -

Jane's Addiction
veteran frontman Perry Farrell has revealed in a recent interview that he's currently penning a musical, reports NME.

Farrel, who is also the brains behind America's Lollapalooza music festival, told Prefix:

"My next project is that I'm working on a play, it's a musical. But it's going to be immersive theatre. It's not going to be in a theatre, I'm going to create an environment and the music will be within that environment, and Jane's Addiction will be within that environment... Musicals make more sense because they're telling stories and they have costumes and something to look at...

"I do notice that the way people go out these days and are entertained is changing, and what you have to do is be aware of it, and you have to give them a different environment. That's what I'm doing. I'm working on, right now, a project where I'm going to create a brand new environment, but it's not going to be a club, and it's not going to be a festival."

Farrell has refused to confirm any of the details, but insists fans will be impressed by the results. He also assures fans that Jane's Addiction will be writing a new studio album this year (2013).
