Alice in Chains at Roy Wilkins
03/21/2010 - 7:30pm
The Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium has announced that iconic Seattle rockers Alice In Chains will take hold of Saint Paul on Sunday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m., which will be the final stop on the first leg of their North American tour. Middle Class Rut will open.
The band is touring in support of its critically acclaimed new album "Black Gives Way To Blue" (Virgin/EMI), which entered Billboard's Top 200 albums chart at No. 5, with first-week sales exceeding 126,000 copies.
The band's electrifying set list will spotlight classic hits and new favorites, including the new single "Your Decision," which impacts radio on Dec. 7. The band recently shot a video for the song with director Stephen Schuster, who they previously worked with on the video for "A Looking In View."
Alice In Chains recently released a "Black Gives Way To Blue" iPhone app, which features full songs from the album, music videos, news, photos, social networking and much more. A demo of the app (which was designed and developed by Mobile Roadie, Streetwise Concepts & Culture (www.streetwise.biz) and EMI Music) can be viewed by clicking here: http://bit.ly/1VWXWZ.
The band (guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell, guitarist/vocalist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez) is currently touring Europe and recently performed on the UK television show "Later ... With Jools Holland." The international dates followed a sold-out U.S. buzz tour and performances on "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" and back-to-back nights on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." All three shows saw Alice In Chains perform the chart-topping lead single "Check My Brain," which hit No. 1 on the Modern, Active and Rock formats and was hailed by Spin magazine as "one of the catchiest songs of Alice In Chains' history."
