Alice In Chains Unlock North American Fall Tour

08.08.2006 5:33 PM EDT

Grunge icons' 40-date jaunt begins September 22 in Las Vegas.

Earlier this year, the surviving members of Alice in Chains traveled across the U.S. to play a mere six club dates, recruiting Comes With the Fall frontman William DuVall to stand in for the late Layne Staley.

Well, as you'd expect, the response to those gigs was overwhelming, with each selling out (see "Alice In Chains Unveil Handful Of U.S. Club Dates" and "Alice In Chains Wrap Up String Of U.S. Club Dates In New York"). So now, the band has decided to head back out this fall, having booked a total of 40 gigs, sprinkled throughout the U.S., with one date in Canada.

The tour will get underway September 22 in Las Vegas and run through November 26 in San Francisco, with additional dates being added over the next few weeks. It remains unclear whether the newly reunited Chains will record new material with DuVall any time soon, but guitarist Jerry Cantrell said in February that it was a remote possibility. It's also uncertain whether DuVall, who was once a member of Cantrell's touring band, has been made a permanent member of the group (see "Remaining Alice In Chains Members Reuniting For Summer Gigs").

Tickets for all dates will be available through a fan-club presale via Alice in Chains' Web site beginning Monday, and the general public will have the chance to scoop them up on August 19. The band will be supported on this run by hard-rock outfit Hurt.

Alice in Chains will be touring, in part, in support of the forthcoming The Essential Alice in Chains, which will land in stores September 5. The two-disc collection is the first comprehensive Chains retrospective release, with 28 tracks culled from all four of the band's four LPs (1990's Facelift, 1992's Dirt, 1995's self-titled release and 1996's "acoustic" MTV Unplugged) and two EPs (1992's Sap and 1994's Jar of Flies), along with remixes of the two Alice tracks that appeared on the "Last Action Hero" soundtrack.
