Loudest Show I’ve Seen: Alice In Chains Concert Review

My friend Jamie and I went to see Alice In Chains in Huntington, WV.

Shooter Jennings (the son of Waylon Jennings) opened the show with a pretty good set of songs.  Musically, he’s all over the place, but good stuff though.

I think Jamie was there to see Shooter more, which is fine.

But I was there to see Alice In Chains.

They had regrouped a few years before this with a new Co-Singer/occasional Guitarist William Duvall taking the spot held by Layne Staley, who sadly passed away in 2002.

The rest of the band was still Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter Jerry Cantrell, Bassist Mike Inez, and Drummer Sean Kinney.

They had released the favorite album of the year previous to this year, Black Gives Way To Blue.

They played a number of songs from it, plus plenty of AIC classics and deep cuts.

They were phenomenal, but as I type this in 2023, I can still say as I said then and since then that this was the loudest show I’ve ever seen.

I almost always wear ear plugs to shows (I did this night), and I’m saying that my hearing has never quite been the same since this show.

Maybe it was a culmination of all the shows and music I’d heard leading up to this night, but still, it was the loudest show I’ve ever seen.

Great, but loud.
