Jane's Addiction pull out of Reading Festival at the last minute

Jane’s Addiction pulled out of their set at Reading festival last night (August 27).

The band, who were due to headline the NME/Radio 1 Stage at the event, pulled out of their slot last minute citing that frontman Perry Farrell’s vocal chords were severely swollen.

A statement issued by the band said: ''Jane's Addiction regretfully had to cancel their scheduled headline performance on the NME /Radio 1 stage at this year's Reading Festival as singer Perry Farrell was unable to perform due to the severe swollen condition of his throat.'

"Although Farrell was treated earlier in the day by top local London physicians and had his heart set on trying to perform under any circumstance, in the end he was completely unable to produce any sound vocally. Jane's Addiction would like to deeply apologize to the fans for any inconvenience."
