GUNS WITHOUT ROSE TO TOUR WITH ALICE WITHOUT STALEY?
Blabbermouth (by way of Newsday) reports that Velvet Revolver and Alice in Chains will play at the Nikon at Jones Beach (formerly Tommy Hilfiger at Jones Beach, formerly just Jones fucking Beach) on August 18. Presumably, this would mean a tour with two of junkiedom’s most famous bands.
If it’s true, it makes perfect sense- VR bassist Duff McKagan did a few dates with Alice last summer as their sit-in rhythm guitarist. Still, after the smaller club shows both bands have done as of late, I can’t really imagine a big tour like this being that much fun – even if it is an opportunity to see two of my favorite guitar gods on one bill.
