Alice in Chains Expands 2014 North American Tour with August Dates
With its previously announced spring tour ready to kick off Friday night (April 25) in Tulsa, Okla., and including a May 20 performance at Battle Creek's Kellogg Arena, Alice in Chains has added more North American dates to the schedule for later this summer.
Eight dates have been scheduled for August, with six of them being in Canada. The first one is Aug. 8 in Penticton, British Columbia. The U.S. stops will be in Peoria, Ill. and Indianapolis, Ind. Tickets for all concerts are available at AliceinChains.com.
Alice in Chains will be spending its June and July playing festivals all over the world, ranging from Amnesia Rockfest in Canada to Graspop in Belgium to Rock in Roma in Italy.
In addition to playing with AIC this summer, guitarist Jerry Cantrell will be going to camp. He's one of the artists slated to appear at this year's Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas.
He'll be there along with Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo and Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins. Regular counselors Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Whitesnake) and Peter Klett (Candlebox) are also on the camp staff. The camp runs July 31-Aug. 3 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, with a live performance by campers and counselors at the House of Blues to wrap up the festivities.
With this year's lineup, it's only natural the curriculum will focus on alternative rock, with campers diving into songs from bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins as well as music from the counselors' bands. For more information, go to rockcamp.com.
