Reformed rockers Jane's Addiction
have scrapped their Australian tour to allow drummer Stephen Perkins
to recover from an infected elbow.
Perkins has been admitted to the Infectious Disease Ward at Cedar's-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he's undergoing anti-biotic treatment. The rocker is expected to make a full recovery.
The reformed original line-up of Jane's Addiction had been on its first world tour in over 17 years and had just returned to Los Angeles from European dates when the mysterious infection was discovered after Perkins noticed severe swelling and pain building in his elbow. The group's Australian tour was due to start on Saturday.
Frontman Perry Farrell
says, "I know how excited we were to come play in Australia, and how long the fans there have waited for this. I want everyone Down Under to know that we will come back as soon as we can."
