Jane’s Addiction has missed three dates on their ongoing tour with The Smashing Pumpkins due to an unspecified injury suffered by frontman Perry Farrell.

In a statement posted to Jane’s Twitter, Farrell shares that he sustained the injury during last Wednesday’s show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, and it has “resulted in my inability to perform.”

“I have since been in pain and discomfort and have been receiving rigorous physio therapy that has done wonders,” Farrell writes.

As a result, Jane’s had to drop off shows in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Toronto over the past week and will also miss upcoming dates in Montreal and Quebec City. They plan to return to the tour for this Saturday’s stop in Cleveland. Our Lady Peace will fill in for Jane’s in the upcoming shows.

“I am filled with sadness and frustration to have to announce this,” Farrell writes. “But I have to mend in order to continue the tour and get back on stage.”

Jane’s launched the tour with the Pumpkins earlier in October. The “Been Caught Stealing” rockers were already down a member due to guitarist Dave Navarro‘s continued battle with long COVID-19. Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen has been filling in for Navarro.
