See Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell Team With Greg Puciato, James Lomenzo, More for Rare Solo Shows

Jerry Cantrell has been very busy over the last couple years with his main project, Alice in Chains, which released its acclaimed sixth album, Rainier Fog, in 2018 and has been touring hard in support of it ever since. He took a slight detour this past weekend, however, playing two sold-out solo shows on December 6th and 7th at Los Angeles’ Pico Union Project. The concerts were billed as “An Evening With Jerry Cantrell,” and the AIC singer-guitarist had promised that he would be “accompanied by some cool friends performing songs you might expect, others I haven’t played in quite a while and maybe even one or two that I never have.” Needless to say, he delivered. Cantrell’s backing band included not one but two former members of the Dillinger Escape Plan — singer Greg Puciato and drummer Gil Sharone — plus bassist James Lomenzo, of Megadeth and Black Label Society fame, as well as guitarist Tyler Bates, who has played with and produced for Marilyn Manson. This notable collective performed a selection of Alice in Chains tunes, rarely played songs from Cantrell’s solo career and even some covers (of Credence Clearwater Revival and Elton John). See fan-filmed video below, as well as the setlists from both nights, as reported by setlist.fm.
