Perry Farrell Injured During Live Show

May 11, 2009

Jane's Addiction lead singer Perry Farrell is recovering from a torn calf muscle he suffered on stage at a concert in Atlanta.

The Lollapalooza creator hurt himself during the band’s first song last night at Lakewood Amphitheatre and was able to finish the show. According to a statement from the band's publicist, he was taken by ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center after the show.

Doctors told him to stay off the leg for several days, but Farrell says he still plans to perform as planned Tuesday night in Austin, Texas. What a badass.

The band is currently on tour with Nine Inch Nails.
