Hollywood, FLA – Halloween came early to the Hard Rock Live on Saturday night when Jane’s Addiction and Smashing Pumpkins brought their tour to Hollywood.

Due to complications from long COVID, Jane’s Addiction founding guitarist Dave Navarro was replaced by multi-instrumentalist Troy Van Leeuwen from Queens of the Stone Age.

The sold-out show featured fans of all ages-many who grew up with the bands, which both started as teenage dreams. Jane’s Addiction lead singer Perry Farrell recalled being a kid living in Hollywood and surfing before moving out to Los Angeles (where he started the band) before they closed their set with the classic “Ocean Size”!

Even the usually subdued Billy Corgan was in a playful mood; encouraging fans to sing along on massive hits like “Today” and “Tonight, Tonight!”

Both groups sounded great and were obviously very well-rehearsed. Here’s hoping we get some new music and more tours from these iconic bands!
