The influential alternative rock band Jane's Addiction will receive the 2,509th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Oct. 30.

The star will be in front of Playmates of Hollywood at 6436 Hollywood Blvd., the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the Walk of Fame, announced today.

The ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. and be streamed at walkoffame.com.

The band was formed in Los Angeles in 1985. Founder and singer Perry Farrell found bassist Eric Avery, who then brought on drummer Stephen Perkins and finally guitarist Dave Navarro, after auditioning many players.

Jane's Addiction became a sensation on the Los Angeles club scene and a staple on the Sunset Strip. It was one of the first bands to emerge from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States.

Jane's Addiction broke up in 1991 and reunited briefly in 1997 with Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers filling in on bass.

The band reunited again in 2001, first touring with Martyn LeNoble on bass. Following the tour, the group recorded the album "Strays" with Chris Chaney on bass.

The band continues to tour and is scheduled to perform Thursday at San Manuel Casino in Highland.

Some of  Jane's Addiction most popular songs include "Ocean Size," "Stop!," "Had A Dad," "Been Caught Stealing," "Three Days," "Classic Girl," "Ripple," "Jane Says" and "Superhero."
