The group Alice in Chains managed to stick around for 28 years, getting its start during the grunge era as a band out of Seattle. Now the multi-platinum rock band heads on a 20-date United States summer tour with a visit to Las Vegas.
News of the summer run follows the band’s recent halftime performance at the NFC Championship game and will be the first tour since the group’s 2013-2014 worldwide run in support of their fifth studio album, the Grammy-nominated “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.” That album entered Billboard’s Top 200 Chart at No. 2 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums Chart, Top Rock Albums Chart, Hard Rock Albums Chart and iTunes Rock Album Chart.
The album’s first two singles, “Stone” and “Hollow,” both hit No. 1 on the rock charts. The band’s biggest songs came in the early 1990s with hits such as “Man in the Box,” “Would” and “I Stay Away.”
Lead singer Layne Staley died from a drug overdose in 2002, and Alice in Chains reunited in 2005 with a number of guest vocalists subbing in before picking William DuVail to take over the singing duties.
