Alice In Chains Members Reunite for Benefit
Concert for CARE Tsumani Relief at Premiere
Former Alice in Chains members ,who haven't performed together publicly since 1996, returned to the stage in support of the Tsunami Continued CARE Relief effort. Joining Kinney, Cantrell and Inez was a long list of other local and national music stars, including Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, Ann Wilson of Heart, Chris DeGarmo of Queensryche, Supersuckers, Children of the Revolution and rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot and his group, Outtasite.
Kinney came up with the idea of doing a tsunami benefit for CARE after making a donation and realizing "it just didn't seem like enough." So he made calls to his former band members, as well as friends in the music community, such as former Alice in Chains manager Susan Silver and Premier club owner (and legendary Seattle grunge-era FOH) Mark Naficy.
Tickets for the K-Rock (KRQI-FM/96.5) Tsunami Continued Care Relief Concert benefit sold at $250.00, while auctioned tickets quickly reached sums in excess of $850.00. For more information about CARE, please visit www.careusa.org.
The Premier's main performance space features a permanent installation of McCauley MONARC large format line array cells and CSM88 subwoofers. A variety of other McCauley SA and SM class wedge monitors and stagefills are predominant in house system robust stage complement.
