The frontman of Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros plans to spend part of his weekend in Rosemont with Toodee, Foofa and hundreds of preschoolers.

Perry Farrell, here for Jane’s concerts at Metro, will be on stage at one of the four “Yo Gabba Gabba! Live” shows at the Rosemont Theatre, promoters said.

The music-loving characters from Nickelodeon’s “Yo Gabba Gabba” have been visited by rock luminaries throughout their U.S. tour. The Worsties, a band from Nashville, is booked for two of the other Rosemont shows.

Farrell is the co-creator of Lollapalooza, the Chicago music festival that includes a kid-friendly stage.
