With their brand new album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ being released to huge critical acclaim around the world and providing their highest charting US album to date – crashing straight in at no.2 on the Billboard charts – Alice In Chains have returned bigger and better than ever, having already completed major headline tours of the USA and Canada.
They were also one of the most talked-about bands at last month’s Download Festival, where their performance was garlanded with huge praise across the board including Kerrang who gave it 5/5 and proclaimed, “Alice In Chains turn in one of the weekend’s finest performances. The downward spiraling guitars and creamy dual vocals … bring down a veil of hushed awe.”
These UK shows will see the band deliver a stunning new show featuring highlights from ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ alongside classics from their entire career. Support on all dates come from one of the most-talked about rock acts in years, the Swedish phenomenon named Ghost.
