Alice In Chains played an acoustic version of their new song “Fly” at The Loupe in their hometown of Seattle, Washington. The performance took place on August 22nd, two days prior to the release of their sixth studio album, Ranier Fog. The Loupe is the newly added revolving glass floor at the top of Seattle’s iconic Space Needle, that rests 500 feet above the floor of Seattle. Alice In Chains has been very active throughout the media since the release of this ground-breaking album.
Not only did they perform atop the Space Needle, but they also gave Seattle fans a scavenger hunt which led them to a secret concert. Fans were given the task of following the clues posted on the group’s Instagram story to find hidden signed CD’s throughout the city. Those signed CD’s would serve as their ticket of admittance for the secret venue.
Alice In Chains also screened an image of remembrance after the passing of the beloved actor, Burt Reynolds. The group was a big fan of his work in Hollywood and screened the crossover image of their 1992 album, Dirt, with Burt Reynolds laying on a bear-skin rug before their show in Irving, Texas on September 8th. That same crossover image is now living on their Instagram page.
Are you into Fantasy Football? If so, the band will be hosting their own Fantasy Football League Charity Event that ends this Friday, September 14th. The Event is raffling off awesome pieces of memorabilia and instruments for Music For Relief and Big League Impact. Check it out via their Facebook post.
Alice in Chains is currently on their U.S. fall tour that continues through late October. The group will also have a ten-day stint playing throughout South America beginning in November.
Alice In Chains lead-guitarist and vocalist, Jerry Cantrell, plays with RPS Regular Slinkys for maximum durability and Paradigm Phosphor Bronze Light Gauge in Acoustic settings to ensure a string never breaks on him.
