Although Jane's Addiction has played New Year's stints at Belly Up in Aspen over the last few years, it's been close to three years since the band was in Denver (with Nine Inch Nails). Live Nation just announced that Jane's will hit the Fillmore Auditorium on Tuesday, May 29, in support of the act's latest effort, The Great Escape Artist; the Duke Spirit opens the show. Pre-sale tickets start this Wednesday, March 7, at 10 a.m. and run through 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, at Jane's Addiction's site with an option to tickets with an unsigned special-edition tour lithograph and a 20 percent discount at the Jane's Addiction online store (excluding media and bundles). General-admission tickets ($44.50) go on sale Saturday, March 10, at 10 a.m.
