  • Alice In Chains Rocking Space Needle; New LP Out 8/24


    Multi-platinum BMG rockers ALICE IN CHAINS have announced a historic AUGUST 21st performance with SIRIUSXM atop SEATTLE’s iconic Space Needle.

    The band’s JERRY CANTRELL, WILLIAM DUVALL, MIKE INEZ, and SEAN KINNEY will be the first band ever to perform on the Space Needle’s brand-new “Loupe,” the world’s first and only revolving glass floor located 500 feet in the air. It’s powered by 12 motors and offers 360-degree views over the PACIFIC NORTHWEST.The Space Needle has been a defining landmark of SEATTLE’s skyline since 1962 and The Loupe is part of its recent $100 million renovation.

    “I’ve visited The Space Needle many times in my life and it’s going to be a real honor and a total trip for us to play there,” says ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist/vocalist JERRY CANTRELL. “We’re so proud of this album (Ranier Fog, out 8/24) and to be able to celebrate its release with a performance at one of our town’s most iconic landmarks is really special. It sorta reminds me of the time we did the ‘Again’ video, but instead of being six feet in the air rocking out on a glass floor, we’ll be 50 stories high … slight difference.”

    The band’s Space Needle performance is the latest in series of SEATTLE-based events that kick off on MONDAY, AUGUST 20th with the SEATTLE MARINERS hosting an “ALICE IN CHAINS NIGHT” at SAFECO FIELD. The MARINERS game vs. the world champion HOUSTON ASTROS, will include a pre-game listening event, a RAINIER FOG CD and an ALICE IN CHAINS T-shirt.

    SIRIUSXM will broadcast ALICE IN CHAINS’ acoustic performance on FRIDAY, AUGUST 31st at 5p (ET and PT) via satellite and through the SIRIUSXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at
