Porno for Pyros has replaced Jane’s Addiction for the 4-day metal music festival, Welcome To Rockville, which is slated to go live on Thursday, May 19.

Jane’s Addiction, who was earlier scheduled to perform at the festival, canceled their performance due to guitarist Dave Navarro’s long bout with COVID. Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farell will still make it to the fest. He will be joined by Stephen Perkins, Peter DiStefeno and Mike Watt for the Porno For Pyros set.

While we’re saddened that Jane’s Addiction can no longer join us, we are beyond excited to have @pornoforpyros perform live for the first time in 26 years ON OUR STAGE THIS WEEKEND. 🤯 🤘 https://t.co/FDiCMbR8Ag

Farrell issued a statement saying:

“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…”
