ALICE IN CHAINS To Kick Off North American Tour In September

ALICE IN CHAINS will embark on a North American-wide tour starting on September 22 in Las Vegas. The tour will hit over three dozen cities including San Francisco, Austin, Toronto and New York. Hard-rock band HURT will be supporting ALICE on the tour.

These performances follow ALICE IN CHAINS' successful six-city club tour (all of which were instant sell-outs) and overseas festival dates and mark the return — after a long hiatus — of one of the few surviving bands from the much-beloved Seattle music scene. ALICE IN CHAINSJerry Cantrell, Mike Inez and Sean Kinney — will again be joined by William DuVall on lead vocals.

Tickets for these shows will be available via a special fan club pre-sale through the band's website ( beginning Monday, August 14 with tickets available to the general public on Saturday, August 19.

Additionally, music fans can hear some of the songs the band will be performing this summer on "The Essential Alice In Chains". Set for a September 5 release on Columbia/Legacy, a division of Sony BMG Music Entertainment, it's the first comprehensive two-CD collection ever issued on ALICE IN CHAINS. The 28 tracks are from all four original albums the band recorded — "Facelift" (1990), "Dirt" (1992), the self-titled "Alice In Chains" (1995), and the live "acoustic" "MTV Unplugged" (1996) — as well as their two EPs, "SAP" (1992) and "Jar Of Flies" (1994). Also included are remixes of their two songs from the "Last Action Hero" original motion picture soundtrack album.
