Jane's Addiction coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
Score another one for Ruth Eckerd Hall in the category of Awesome '90s Throwbacks.
The same month that Eddie Vedder is playing two shows in Clearwater, Jane's Addiction will bring their theater tour to town on May 19. Tickets are $42.50, and according to Jane's Addiction's website, they'll go onsale at noon Saturday. The Duke Spirit will open. Click here for details.
While Jane's Addiction always puts on one of the most energetic and visual songs of any band out there, it's not clear exactly what this set will entail. It will be unusually intimate and no doubt theatrical, a note on the band's tour page says the "show presentation may be slightly different due to logistical reasons" at Ruth Eckerd Hall and a few other venues. We're not sure what those reasons may be. But we'll keep an eye out.
If you live in Hillsborough County, you can always head the other direction, too. Jane's Addiction will also perform at the House of Blues in Orlando on May 15. Tickets are $59.50-$62.50. Click here.
