Perry Farrell Reveals Why He’s ‘Pissed Off’ About Canceled Pearl Jam Performance


Jane’s Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell expressed his disappointment over being forced to cancel Sunday’s Lollapalooza Argentina show set to be headlined by Pearl Jam.

Farrell tweeted, “Brothers, sisters, our hearts have been aching over the news of the rainout today. I’ve even gotten angry. Wanting answers- thinking of a way- why not move ahead- it stopped raining?..You and me we are alike. I made sure to obtain pictures- here they are.

I am still pissed off- but we did the right thing. And there is no one be blame. I am hell bent on making next year the time of our life.”

He referenced the tragedy during Pearl Jam’s 2000 Roskilde Festival performance as a reason why the cancellation needed to happen.

“Ninoska, Glad you weren’t the one to make the call on this particular day…. Experts (Stage engineers who resurrected the structure in tandem with band stage producer in tandem with band manager) assess the damage inflicted by god. I was disappointed too.”

He also wrote to a fan, “Justin, Thanks brother- we’d love to have your team on board some day. Send our love to friend and your family. Today was very sad- as a torrent of rain hit Argentina and destroyed the stages. Our last show here was canceled. It’s eating us up inside- but way beyond our control.”

Farrell had previously announced, “Due to severe overnight weather containing heavy storms, lightning and winds that are expected to continue, it has been decided in compliance with governmental authorities instructions to cancel the third day of Lollapalooza Argentina.
