ALICE IN CHAINS Performs LED ZEPPELIN Classic With Symphony Orchestra; Video Available

ALICE IN CHAINS performed a four-song set Friday night (November 2) at Matt Messina and the Symphony Guild's 10th anniversary benefit concert (for Seattle Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center), Symphony Legacy, at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Washington. In addition to the band's original material, ALICE IN CHAINS played a cover of LED ZEPPELIN's "Kashmir" while backed by over 200 musicians, including the Northwest Symphony Orchestra.

ALICE IN CHAINS's setlist was as follows:

01. Whale & Wasp
02. Sickman
03. I Stay Away
04. Kashmir (LED ZEPPELIN cover)

Fan-filmed video footage of ALICE IN CHAINS performing a cover of LED ZEPPELIN's "Kashmir" while backed by the Northwest Symphony Orchestra can be viewed below.

ALICE IN CHAINS singer William DuVall recently posted a message online about the new music that the band has been writing. DuVall wrote, "As it says on the ALICE IN CHAINS website, we've been working on new material. The first in over 10 years. It's been deeply rewarding and the stuff is insane."

DuVall's comments were the first made publicly by a member of ALICE IN CHAINS regarding new music from the band, although reports surfaced earlier this summer that the band was writing new songs.

ALICE IN CHAINS reunited last year, with DuVall on vocals, for its first live dates since 1996. Original singer Layne Staley died in 2002.

ALICE IN CHAINS' 1996 "MTV Unplugged" album was reissued on September 18 with a bonus DVD featuring additional songs left off the original version. The tracks are "Frogs", "Angry Chair" and "The Killer Is Me".
