Bummer Alert


Dave's been dealing with this for a lot of 2022.

Dave Navarro

Dave Navarro is unfortunately sitting out the upcoming Jane's Addiction tour as he's still dealing with COVID. Navarro's illness originally made Jane's Addiction miss out on their Welcome To Rockville performance earlier this year, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Navarro will be filled in for by Troy Van Leeuwen and will spend his time at home working on the first new Jane's Addiction record since 2011. So that's nice, at least.

"To all of the Jane's Addiction fans attending the Jane's/Smashing Pumpkins 'Spirits On Fire' tour, I am sorry to have to say that I will not be attending due to my continued battle with Long Covid that I have been dealing with since last December.

"I had hoped for a full recovery by October but I am still very fatigued and will not be able to join this leg. I am personally gutted as our original bass player has returned, Eric Avery. We wanted to bring you the original line up but that will have to wait until I am recovered. While the band is touring, I will be working on some new Jane's material in the studio here in LA. In the meantime, the great Troy Van Leeuwen will be filling in for me. He has been in such bands as Queens Of The Stone Age, Failure, A Perfect Circle, Eagles Of Death Metal & The Damned just to name a few. He is a great guy and I am honoured to have him help make this tour happen.

"Though I am saddened to not make this tour I am focussed on making a full recovery and re-joining the guys when I am able. I truly wish the band well on this tour and I am confident they will bring everything to make it a fabulous show! Go get em guys! Maybe I can get to a show one night and watch my own band for the first time ever."
