Velvet Revolver and Alice In Chains will be on tour this summer in the US and Canada. Sparta will also be on tour with them as their opening act. Velvet Revolver‘s frontman, Scott Weiland had the following to say about touring with Alice In Chains, “They’re good friends of ours, and obviously they have amazing songs, people have been saying the shows were amazing, and they were drawing some pretty big crowds, so we figured it would be kind of a cool gig. It would be fun to watch them play every night and listen to those songs.”
