Alice in Chains announced a second leg to their upcoming North American headlining tour. The alt-metal act will perform a second New York City gig on July 26th. The band will resume touring September 19th in Richmond, Virginia and conclude October 8th in Reno, Nevada. Alice in Chains’ previously announced July 17th Detroit show is re-scheduled for June 23rd with Guns N’ Roses. Chains opened a pair of shows for the GN’Rs recently reunited line-up in April, and they will rejoin them for five additional shows in late June and early July.
Mumford & Sons will finally wrap up their 20-month tour in support of 2015 LP Wilder Mind with the Austin 5000, an eight-date trek revolving around the band’s sets at a pair of Austin City Limits festival weekends. The band, currently trekking on a North American leg that wraps June 19th at the Firefly Music Festival, will be back in action starting September 25th for Las Vegas’ Life is Beautiful fest. From there, they’ll travel to cities within an hour’s flight (roughly) of the ACL fest – Salt Lake City, Englewood, Colorado, Albuquerque, Phoenix and Chula Vista, California – in addition to their two Austin gigs. These dates will be the final 2016 U.S. tour dates for Mumford & Sons, the band said.
After staging a surprise show Sunday night at Brooklyn’s Warsaw, Prophets of Rage – the supergroup featuring members of Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy‘s Chuck D and Cypress Hill‘s B-Real – have announced a nationwide summer trek dubbed the Make America Rage Again Tour. Following their three warm-up shows, including their intense debut performance at Los Angeles’ Whisky A Go Go, Prophets of Rage will next take the stage at a still-to-be-determined venue in Cleveland on July 19th, the same time the Republican National Convention swarms the Ohio city.
