Alice In Chains have announced that they will be playing a special acoustic set atop the Space Needle in Seattle, WA on August 21. The band will be the first to perform on “The Loupe”, which is the world’s first and only revolving glass floor located 500 feet in the air. That addition to the landmark was part of a recent $100 million dollar renovation. SiriusXM will broadcast the performance on August 31 at 5pm ET/PT.
Jerry Cantrell commented:
“I’ve visited the Space Needle many times in my life and it’s going to be a real honor and a total trip for us to play there. We’re so proud of this album and to be able to celebrate its release with a performance at one of our town’s most iconic landmarks is really special. It sorta reminds me of the time we did the ‘Again‘ video, but instead of being 6 feet in the air rocking out on a glass floor, we’ll be 50 stories high…slight difference.”
This is one of the various hometown activities the group have scheduled around the release of their new album “Rainier Fog” (out August 24). Other things they have planned include the Seattle Mariners’ “Alice in Chains Night” on August 20 and a special pop-up/retrospective at The Crocodile on August 23-24.
