Alice In Chains to perform halftime at NFC Championship

Alice In Chains will perform at halftime during the NFC Championship Game this Sunday, January 18 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The Seattle Seahawks play host to the Green Bay Packers for the NFC title and the right to represent the Conference in the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona on February 1.

“It’s an honor to be asked to take part in anything to do with the Seahawks,” said guitarist and longtom Seahwaks fan Jerry Cantrell. “I’m always happy to show up and lend a helping hand, absolutely.”

“We’ve just been taking the winter off, so it’s been kind of nice to be around for the football season,” he added. “I was up for the game last weekend.”

Alice In Chains wrapped up a world tour in support of 2013’s “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here” last August.

The Seattle band’s fifth album sold 62,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.
