Alice in Chains Tour Photos
Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, head honcho at Greenygrey Creation in the absence of the legendary Andy Wolfhol. Here’s some photos from the Alice in Chains tour at the Leeds O2 Academy. The first is of Walking Papers, with Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses fame on the bass.
The second is of Ghost, which were undoubtedly the most greenygrey of the night. Their charismatic vocalist, Papa Emeritus, sported a surreal greenygrey cape, and the lighting was greenygreyish too. Moreover, their Grucifix logo begins with a capital G! Their tongue-in-cheek conceptual image reminds me of the Greenygrey too!!
The bottom two are of Alice in Chains. They produced a great musical performance, mixing great musicianship with fantastic songs; playing a set focused on their classic tunes, with a few new ones.
The Alice in Chains U.K. tour continues in Glasgow tonight, and ends in Newport on Saturday. The Newport one is sold out.
