The Monster Truck pulled into town hauling iconic grunge legends Alice In Chains with them.
Monster Truck has heated up stages across America and tonight was no different. This hard-hitting Canadian rock band wrapped up a ten-week tour that started with Alter Bridge and ended with Alice In Chains. The boys in the Truck played a balls out rock n’ roll show to make everyone here in attendance at the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, Michigan grin from ear to ear. Mike Inez, of Alice In Chains, even joined them on stage to make it a special night as the boys in Chains bid a fond farewell to their tour mates of the past couple of weeks!
Alice In Chains have played to sold out venues all across America in support of their stellar fifth studio album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. The band has proven, with singer William DuVall, that they continue as a force to be reckoned with. Dinosaurs peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 the band’s highest chart position since 1995’s Alice In Chains album. The crowd was definitely into Chains. They sang along to every classic hit as well as the band’s newest material. With a killer live performance, killer set list and killer light show, the band had the audience mesmerized from the very first note of their set!
