Courtney Love will serve as opening act for Jane’s Addiction on the band’s October 27th Hollywood Bowl show. This will be the first time Love will be billed as a solo artist, but former Hole drummer Patty Schemel will be part of her backing band.
With Hole entangled in a contract dispute with Geffen Records, Love had put together the all-girl band Bastard, featuring Schemel, Veruca Salt founder Louise Post and former Rockit Girl guitarist Gina Crosley. With Post and Crosley leaving the group to work on a Veruca Salt album, the Bastard project has been sidelined.
Bastard did complete a demo before Post and Crosley defected, and Love is expected to perform some of those songs, as well as Hole tunes. Love is also considering opening other dates on the Jane’s tour.
