Jane's Addiction, Queens Of The Stone Age, Audioslave, Incubus, and Jurassic 5 are among the acts expected to topline the revived Lollapalooza festival this summer. Details of the tour will be announced later today in Los Angeles. The event, initially spearheaded by Jane's frontman Perry Farrell, has been off the road since 1997, when Tool, Korn, Snoop Dogg, Tricky, and Orbital were all part of the package.
Lollapalooza was tipped to return last summer, but plans were put on hold until this year. "Having gotten a late start, we felt it would be smart to start building now for summer 2003," Farrell said at the time. "It will afford us a chance to get the headliner we really want."
Farrell launched the first version of the tour in 1991, with Jane's Addiction headlining a bill that also featured Nine Inch Nails, Ice-T/Body Count, Living Colour, the Butthole Surfers, and the Rollins Band. Since then, the tour served as the model for a host of successful festival tours, including Ozzfest, Lilith Fair, the Vans Warped Tour, and Moby's Area festival.
Jane's Addiction is expected to be touring behind its first new studio album since 1990's "Ritual de lo Habitual," which is being produced by Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Lou Reed). The set is expected early this summer via Warner Bros. The members of Audioslave are also no strangers to Lollapalooza; frontman Chris Cornell co-headlined the 1992 and 1996 events while in Soundgarden, while guitarist Tom Morello, drummer Brad Wilk, and bassist Tim Commerford joined the fray in 1993 while with Rage Against The Machine.
