Jane's Addiction reform. Travis Barker deps for a show!

The original line-up of Jane's Addiction took to the stage for the first time in a 17 years at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (23 April) as part of the NME Awards USA. The newly reunited band brought the entire house to its feet for their set that included the classic tracks 'Jane Says, 'Mountain Song', 'Ocean Size' and 'Stop'. The band was also presented with the Godlike Genius Award at the ceremony.

Just a week before, the band's guitarist Dave Navarro and frontman Perry Farrell joined forces with Chili Pepper Flea and Travis Barker to perform Jane's track 'Mountain Song' for Tom Morello's Axis of Justice show at the Troubador in LA. You can check out footage below...
