The William Morris Agency and Perry Farrell are putting together a Lollapalooza 2004 package tour, Bulletin has learned. The outing is tentatively scheduled to run in July and August.

Lollapalooza returned last year after a five-year absence, and grossed $13.7 million from 25 shows reported to Billboard. The lineup included Farrell and his band Jane's Addiction, along with Incubus, Audioslave, Queens Of The Stone Age, the Donnas and Jurassic 5. High production costs led to the cancellation of two shows at nontraditional venues on the 2003 route. Clear Channel Entertainment promoted 22 of 30 dates, primarily at company-owned sheds.

Farrell launched Lollapalooza in 1991, with a lineup of Jane's Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, Ice-T/Body Count, Living Colour, Butthole Surfers and Rollins Band. The festival's best year was 1994, when it reported more than $21 million in grosses. Its weakest run was in 1997, when it reported $7.4 million from 24 shows with Snoop Dogg, Korn, Tool, Tricky and others.
