Alice in Chains
Alice In Chains/Diamond Lie
This section borrows content from a fantastic site; Bacus.net.
This site is extensive in every way. You will find all concerts listed from 1985
(from the Alice N Chains/Diamond Lie days) to 1996 (MTV Unplugged) And onwards.
Its a rare find in a site to list so much information on AIC's gigs, and I strongly suggest you check it out!
Not only does it have gigs, it has a vast chronology of interview dates and much more!
3 Names for 1 band;
- 07/09/85 || WA Lynnwood Rollaway (Sleze);
- 07/14/87 || Lacey, WA ??, (Diamond Lie) - Watch A Clip!
- 02/11/89 || Seattle, WA Central Tavern (w/ Mother Love Bone, Dead Flowers)
Pivotal moment in the start of the bands progression. 'Sleze' were Layne's band. A short time later, a merge of talents happened then they were known as 'Alice N Chains'.
A small flyer advertised Diamond Lie for a brief period, Click the 'watch a clip' link above to see them in action on Youtube. Otherwise if you'd like to know more Click their name! Glam!
Again, a quick change back and they settle for 'Alice In Chains' The band we all love and know. The interesting thing about this was, 'Mother Love Bone' (an unformed Pearl Jam) were the support act. As would be the case in more shows to come.
Here i've only mentioned 3 dates. Dates which are interesting to read.
To find out more you have really got to look at Bacus.net. The list is so long you will indulge yourself in Gig Glory. Some of the dates have setlists/bootleg info/gig posters too!
