January 15th 2018
It's been a very eventful week for Janet! A day after playing a successful show on January 11th at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, she was rushed to hospital and had to have emergency surgery to remove a subdural hematoma that was putting pressure on her brain.
She had to have a hole drilled into her head to remove the hematoma, and a titanium plate put in to cover the hole. See her post on Facebook.
Vixen have signed to Rat Pak Records for a new release coming in 2018. No details given but presumably this is for the live album, at least initially. You can sign up to the mailing list for news.
