Josh Klinghoffer To Fill In For Dave Navarro On Upcoming Jane’s Addiction Tour

 Jane’s Addiction will replace ailing Dave Navarro with Josh Klinghoffer on the band’s upcoming Tour.

The former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist also records with Eddie Vedder and performs with Pearl Jam.

Navarro, who missed Jane’s Addiction’s fall 2022 U.S. tour with Smashing Pumpkins, is unable to join his bandmates for the rock band’s upcoming shows due to his ongoing battle with Covid.

“As a band we are in a great place, writing new music, and the bond is tighter than ever. We all hope Dave can be out playing with us; when he feels healthy and ready,” Jane’s Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell, bassist Eric Avery and drummer Stephen Perkins said in a statement posted on social media.

They added, “For the near future, our brother Josh Klinghoffer will jump in for the upcoming shows on the West Coast, South America and some additional international shows to be announced soon. We want to thank you for being there with us over these thirty some odd years. You know, we’re going to keep throwing down for you.”

Jane’s Addiction’s eight-show West Coast tour will begin on March 5 in Bakersfield, California.
