Alice in Chains returns to the stage to celebrate 30 years of “dirt”

The band from Seattle Chained Alice has been busy lately.

First, the band’s 1992 album Dirt turned 30 this year, and this album is set to receive an anniversary vinyl reissue and a box set release. On original release, Dirt peaked at sixth place in the standings Billboard 200 and became Alice in Chains’ best-selling album. Another cause for celebration is the fact that the band’s 1992 album was recently certified five times platinum by the RIAA. The precursor of Dirt, face lift (1990), which went triple platinum and the band’s 1994 album, Pot of flieshas now reached four times platinum. Talk about a platinum night.

But, to continue to shine the spotlight on Dirtthe box set will include the reissued album as well as never-before-seen photos and a resin figurine of the album cover (among other things).

And to top it off, Alice in Chains kicked off their summer tour with Breaking Benjamin and Bush on August 10. This first gig in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania marked the band’s first gig in three years. The tour will run until October 8, and you can check out the rest of their tour dates below.
