ALICE IN CHAINS: Legendary Band Announces U.S. Tour; Portion of Ticket Pre-Sales To Benefit Memorial Fundraiser


Multi-platinum rock band Alice In Chains has announced a headlining U.S. summer tour set to kick off July 17 at the Starlight Theatre at Pala Casino Spa & Resort in San Diego, CA. The full itinerary is below and ticket pre-sales begin tomorrow, March 10. The band is donating two dollars for every pre-sold ticket to a memorial fundraiser.

“Thanks to the great people at WMRQ in Hartford, CT, we became close with a young man named Stefan Dayne-Ankle, who sadly last week lost a courageous battle with Leukemia,” says the band. “To honor Stefan and help give him the memorial he deserves, we’re donating $2 from every ticket pre-sold on this tour. To read more about Stefan’s story, and why we’re raising funds for his family, please click HERE.”

Alice In Chains’ upcoming tour follows the band’s recent halftime performance at the NFC Championship game and will be their first tour since their 2013-2014  worldwide run in support of Grammy-nominated album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, which 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 success was fueled by its first two singles, “Hollow” and “Stone,” which both hit No. 1 on the rock charts.

In other news, the band’s Alice In Chains & Friends Fantasy Football League recently launched its 4thannual charity auction,  partnering with Music For Relief and MusiCares. Proceeds from the auction will help Music For Relief provide protective gear and training for health workers dealing with the Ebola epidemic as part of the Ebola Prevention initiative, and the health and human services programs of MusiCares.
