Three UK dates
Alice in Chains have today announced an extensive European tour for May and June 2019, following the release of their hugely acclaimed album Rainier Fog earlier this year, which became the band’s first Top 10 UK album, also hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock, Alternative and Hard Music Charts and No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart.
Starting on May 23rd in Glasgow, the 14-date tour includes three UK shows, with a date at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena on the 24th and Wembley The SSE Arena on the 25th. These will be the biggest headline shows the band have played to date in the UK.
