INDIANAPOLIS — American rock bands Alice In Chains and Breaking Benjamin are reuniting for the first time for a co-headlining tour with special guests Bush to host a rock night across the country, making it the one of the hottest tours of the summer. Produced by Live Nation, the 30-city tour includes a stop at the Ruoff Music Center on Wednesday, August 17 as part of the Coors Light concert series.
With over 30 years behind them and 30 million records sold, the upcoming tour marks Alice In Chains’ first tour dates in nearly three years. The band will play iconic songs from their classic albums like Dirt and Facelift as well as fan favorites from their more recent releases Rainier Fog and Black Gives Way To Blue. Alice In Chains was honored in December 2020 with the Museum of Pop’s annual Founders Award. The celebration was streamed worldwide, viewed over a million times, and offered fans a chance to see acoustic performances by Alice In Chains, as well as covers by musicians and friends of the band.
Sean Kinney, founding member and drummer of Alice In Chains, said of the tour: “We can’t wait to finally get back on the road this summer. It’s been too long and we can’t wait to get out there and share a night of music. .with our fans again.
Alongside Alice In Chains, Breaking Benjamin are looking forward to performing live, following two successful tours in the fall of 2021. Their most recent work, Aurora, was released in January 2020. Comprised of reimagined versions of their catalog, Aurora quickly became a fan favorite and premiered the all-new, “Far Away.” As always, the group will perform a series of hits all summer long.
Ben Burnley of Breaking Benjamin said, “We’re so excited to hit the road with Alice In Chains and Bush. It’s such an honor to share the stage with such amazing bands that we grew up listening to and who have influenced us so much. We look forward to seeing you all there.
Bush has sold over 20 million records in the United States and Canada alone. They also compiled an incredible streak of 23 consecutive Top 40 singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. Eleven of them reached the Top 5, including six at number one: “Comedown”, “Glycerine”, “Machinehead”, “Swallowed”, “The Chemicals Between Us” and “The Sound of Winter”. Since then, they have continued to dominate rock radio and play sold-out shows around the world. Their latest album The Kingdom follows 2017’s Black And White Rainbows, which People magazine hailed as “a triumphant return”.
