Alice In Chains And Tool Share The Stage In Europe

-

There has always been synergy between the band’s Tool and Alice In Chains. It goes way back to AIC singer Layne Staley joining Tool onstage in 1993. Tool singer Maynard James Keenan even fronted AIC when the did a reunion show in 2005, to pay tribute to Staley, who died in 2002.

Recently, the two bands were in Europe together doing festivals and both bands’ bassists Mike Inez and Justin Chancellor shared a brilliant backstage photo as they held each other’s arms.

AIC’s Mike Inez said via Instagram, “A bass tech and 2 bassists walk into a bar…#aliceinchains #toolband #inautonomy #rainierfogtour.”

Jerry Cantrell lamented: “Krakow, what a great crowd and beautiful city. Got to share the stage with our friends Tool and BRMC . Great night , thank you for having us.”

Cantrell also commented on a recent show in Germany, saying: “Interesting show in Hamburg tonight. Sean demonstrates the layout in pic 3. I don’t think I’ve ever played a brick stage before. There was also a pretty big angled lawn between us and the audience so they were too far away for my taste. There was a DB limit on the show of around 90-95 and between the first 4 songs the crowd was yelling for us to turn it up.

Interesting show in Hamburg tonight. Sean demonstrates the layout in pic 3. I don’t think I’ve ever played a brick stage before.

There was a DB limit on the show of around 90-95 and between the first 4 songs the crowd was yelling for us to turn it up. Funny thing is, they were probably over the DB limit as well. Sean’s snare drum unmiked is about 105 DB. Luckily we had a great audience and I think the band played pretty well for our garden party gig. Haha! Thank you all for coming out . We will try and play a different venue where we can melt your face while getting right in it next trip to Hamburg. 📷@inautonomy and JC
