Jane's Addiction has unfortunately dropped off Welcome To Rockville happening this weekend due to guitarist Dave Navarro battling long COVID. Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell has instead pulled together a Porno For Pyros reunion for the festival, which Farrell points out is the first live show the band has done in 26 years.

"The gang and the government are no different," said Farrell in a statement issued by Welcome To Rockville. "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…"

Porno For Pyros recently reunited for the digital edition of Lollapalooza in 2020, dubbed Lolla2020. The reunion show is also not that surprising considering DiStefano made it known that he and Perkins were working on the follow-up to Porno For Pyros' 1996 (and so far final) album Good God's Urge.
