Troubled former Warrant star Jani Lane has been given a career boost following his recent DUI shame - he'll replace JACK RUSSELL for the remainder of Great White's 25th anniversary tour dates.
Russell has been forced to sit out the tour after suffering a perforated bowel and is currently recovering after major surgery.
XYZ star Terry Ilous stepped in to replace the singer for Great White's August (10) dates, but now Lane will rock with the band until the end of the year (10).

Lane was sentenced to serve 120 days behind bars after pleading no contest to DUI following a May (10) arrest for crashing into a parked car while driving in Woodland Hills, California.
