Perry Farrell‘s Porno For Pyros and Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan joined forces for a cover of Led Zeppelin’s ‘When The Levee Breaks’ at Lollapalooza.

Farrell’s band stepped in for Jane’s Addiction, after the latter band cancelled at the last minute due to guitarist Dave Navarro’s ongoing battle with COVID.

“I love y’all, Chicago, we love coming every year. [We love to] party with you all. Eat the great steaks. Everything else, man, the bars. The nightclubs. And our friendship. We have a very dear friend, Billy Corgan, that we got together – reunited – this time out. We wanna do a proper Chicago song for you together,” Farrell told the crowd as he introduced the cover.
