A video clip of ALICE IN CHAINS performing the song “Rooster” with COMES WITH THE FALL frontman William DuVall and Ann and from HEART on March 10, 2006 at the taping of the VH1 Classic series “Decades Rock Live!” has been posted online at YouTube.com.
ALICE IN CHAINS played five songs on as part of a “Decades Rock Live!” tribute to HEART. The episode officially premiered on May 5 but the final 90-minute program only included two songs from AIC (“Would?” and “Rooster”).
Former PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo sang two songs with the group (Would? [video] and “Them Bones”), while DuVall performed another two in addition to dueting with Ann Wilson on “Rooster”.
ALICE IN CHAINS recently confirmed the five dates and cities for its U.S. mini-tour, beginning on May 18 in Los Angeles and ending on May 23 in New York City. The shows will all take place in either small clubs or theatres.
These gigs and a previously announced date at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August are the only announced North American shows for the reunited group so far, with European festival dates on tap for June and July.
As previously reported, ALICE IN CHAINS will be joined on vocals by DuVall. However, surprise guest vocalists and musicians are expected to show up at each of the five U.S. dates.
