Porno for Pyros to reunite for MASSIVE Lollapalooza stream

It’s been 24 years, but Porno For Pyros fans are in for a massive treat.

The ’90s alt. rockers, which was frontman Perry Farrell’s next outfit after the seminal Jane’s Addiction, have announced a bit of a reunion as part of an upcoming Lollapalooza live stream event.

With Lollapalooza, the iconic US festival that was the brainchild of Farrell, forced to cancel it’s 2020 iteration due to COVID-19, they are taking the show online with a mammoth free live stream.

Lolla 2020 livestream will air exclusively on the Lollapalooza YouTube channel and will feature a whopping 150 archival and original performances and appearances including the first reunion for Porno for Pyros since their 1996 long player God’s Good Urge.

The event will run across four days and will feature archival headlining performances from the likes of Metallica, Paul McCartney, LCD Sound System, Lorde and Alabama Shakes.

Aside from the special Porno for Pyros performance, there will also be live sets from the likes of Alison Wonderland, Vic Mensa, Yungblud, The Neighbourhood, and literally heaps more.

If that wasn’t enough, Perry Farrell will also take part in a tribute to David Bowie with pianist Mike Garson, as well as joining Foo Fighter Taylor Hawkins for a performance with Kind Heaven Orchestra.

Oh and the Been Caught Stealing hitmaker will also, along with rapper LL Cool J and Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot host candid conversations with the likes of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and, again, heaps more.

Oh and Michelle Obama will also be putting in an appearance!

This barely scratches the surface of what’s on offer for Lolla 2020 so head here for more info and strap yourself in for four days of awesomeness.

Lolla 2020 will run from Thursday 30 July to Sunday 2 August from 5pm each night. This is of course US time so for us that will equate to, Friday 31 July to Monday 3 August from 8am each day.
