Last year, Perry Farrell and his Kind Heaven Orchestra project performed a rooftop concert at the Pendry Chicago hotel to celebrate the return of Lollapalooza, which had been canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That unique show is now set to stream online next month.
The streaming platform Veeps is set to premiere the performance on July 22. A press release describes the concert as an “audio sensory journey of artistic fusion set against the glistening skylines of Chicago,” featuring renditions of songs by Farrell’s bands Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros, as well as original Kind Heaven Orchestra material.
“At that point there were no festivals happening; for almost 2 years,” Farrell recalls. “We needed to come back. Lolla went for it. Listened to the science, worked with the doctors and the mayor. Suddenly there we were, the Kind Heaven Orchestra set on high, surrounded by Chicago skyscrapers. Our hearts were released.”
Tickets to watch the stream are on sale now via PerryFarrell.Veeps.com.
Farrell, meanwhile, has been busy reuniting Porno for Pyros, which played their first show in 26 years during May’s Welcome to Rockville festival. The group has also announced shows in Chicago and Los Angeles for July.
