Alice in Chains launched their summer US tour with co-headliners Breaking Benjamin and special guests Bush on Wednesday night (August 10th) in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania. The show marked AIC’s first concert in three years, after last playing in September 2019.
The 30-city outing runs through an October 8th show in Mansfield, Massachusetts, with tickets available via Ticketmaster. With their seminal sophomore album, Dirt, turning 30 years old this year, AIC’s 15-song set was heavy on tunes from the 1992 classic.
All told, AIC played six songs from Dirt, including “Angry Chair,” “Dam That River,” “Down in a Hole,” “Rooster,” “Them Bones,” and “Would?” Other tunes from the Layne Staley era of the band included set-opener “Again,” “Grind,” “Man in the Box,” and “No Excuses.”
The current William DuVall era of the group was represented with a handful of songs from the albums Black Gives Way to Blue, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, and the band’s most recent effort, 2018’s Rainier Fog.
Earlier this year, AIC guitarist-singer Jerry Cantrell embarked on a solo tour in support of his 2021 album, Brighten, during which he played a number of AIC songs.
Meanwhile, co-headliners Breaking Benjamin delivered a 17-song set featuring chart-topping rock radio hits like “So Cold,” “I Will Not Bow,” and “Diary of Jane,” among others. And Bush balanced their set between tunes off their 2020 album, The Kingdom, and their monster 1994 debut, Sixteen Stone.
