Alice In Chains have had a busy few days leading up to today’s release of their first album in five years, “Rainier Fog.” From throwing the first pitch at a Mariners game Monday to last night’s history-making performance at Seattle’s quintessential landmark Space Needle, the album’s launch will cap off a week-long hometown celebration for the grunge pioneers.
Vocalist and guitarist Jerry Cantrell says ahead of the performance:
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.
The show, a collaboration with SiriusXM, included a limited audience of subscribers, was the first ever at the The Loupe — part of a recent $100 million renovation at the Space Needle that touts the world’s first and only revolving glass floor 500 feet above ground. Below, watch the band perform a portion of new track “Fly,” from “Rainier Fog.”
