LIVE! Music: Original line up of Jane’s Addiction, Love and Rockets to perform in Rogers; Chamber Music heats up

The OG Jane’s Addiction — Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Stephen Perkins and Eric Avery — join their longtime influencers Love and Rockets — Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins (the non-Peter Murphy members of Bauhaus) — for a co-headlining tour this summer. They perform at 7 p.m. Aug. 21 as part of the Cox Concert Series at the AMP in Rogers.

Tickets are $29.50 to $109.50 plus fees.

Jane’s Addiction formed in 1985 and has been a major influence in alternative rock music and culture through their genre-defying classic songs and cinematic live shows. Their first release was their self-titled live album, which led to two studio albums, “Nothing Shocking” (1988) and “Ritual De Lo Habitual” (1990). The band’s initial farewell tour in 1991 launched the first Lollapalooza, which has since become a perennial alternative rock festival.

Love and Rockets are a noted influence on Jane’s Addiction. Formed just a few years earlier after the dissolution of Gothic rock band Bauhaus, Love and Rockets scored a major hit with their take on the Temptations, “Ball of Confusion,” and went on to a 14-year career and seven albums.

The Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols, A Place To Bury Strangers, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck, Maynard Keenan, Dubfire and the Pixies all list Love and Rockets as an influence.

Purchase tickets and add-ons for the Aug. 21 show at or by calling 443-5600.

The AMP music series continues this week with Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers and The Japanese House at 7:45 p.m. June 3.
