In support of their latest album, “The Great Escape Artist,” this special run of shows — called "Theatre Of The Escapists" — will bring the band to intimate venues, most of which are classic theatres: "We chose to play as many of the great theatres that we could find because we wanted to immerse the audience in a unique experience unlike any they have ever seen at a rock show," says Farrell. "Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights. We like orgies, and hope you do too."
The 18-date tour starts February 22 at The Pageant in St. Louis and wraps March 24 in Milwaukee.
Black Box Revelation are opening the shows.
Tickets go on sale January 14, with a pre-sale set for 10:00 EST this Wednesday, January 11.
There will be a special package on JanesAddiction.com where fans can pair up their presale ticket with a high-quality lithograph - the lithograph will be signed by the band and sold only at the JanesAddiction.com presale.
