Alice in Chains Doesn’t Hold Back
Alice in Chains was one of the leading members of the grunge rock movement to come out of Seattle in the early 1990s, and they are currently one of the few remaining groups that are still active. Along with Pearl Jam, this band has gone beyond the grunge sound of the 1990s to become one of the most legendary bands in all of rock music. Tickets to Alice in Chains concerts are still big items, and as they get ready for their next tour, you will definitely want to get some for you and your friends.
Alice in Chains burst onto the music scene in 1990 when their first recording was released, but it wasn’t until about 1992 that the band hit their stride, receiving national fame. They were nominated for a Grammy that year, but lost out to Van Halen. Their album Dirt came out in 1992 as well, which eventually went quadruple platinum. They toured with Ozzy Osbourne that year, gaining an even larger audience. Songs like “Rooster,” “Would?,” “Man in the Box,” and “No Excuses” all went on to be huge hits for the band. After 1996, the band stopped touring with regularity thanks to lead vocalist Layne Staley’s substance abuse problems. Many of the bands members went on to play with other bands or to create side projects during this time. However, the band’s popularity never really diminished during this period, and today they are just as popular as ever.
Alice in Chains is now going on tour with Guns N Roses, creating one of the most talked about tours in recent years. If you’ve never seen either of these groups, this is a once in a lifetime chance to see two of the biggest bands of all-time. Tickets to Alice in Chains might not be something you’ve even considered in the last several years because of the fact that they’ve been pretty quiet since the death of singer Layne Staley in 2002, but the current incarnation of the band with founding member Jerry Cantrell taking over the full share of vocals is something that you will not want to miss.
