The Lollapalooza festival held every year in Chicago has become one of the country’s largest music festivals. What you may not know about Lollapalooza though, is that it originally started as a farewell show for the group Jane’s Addiction!

In 1991, Perry Farrell, lead singer of Jane’s Addiction, began planning an epic farewell show for his band that would bring music from all over the continent together for an incredible concert. The line-up included a diverse group of artists like Ice-T, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Nine Inch Nails. After the first show, the festival began touring around the United States and Canada until it eventually stationed itself in Chicago, IL.
