Alice in Chains hops on the 3D bandwagon

on October 07, 2010, 3:48pm

U2. The Jonas Brothers. Dave Matthews Band. What do all these bands have in common (other than fading cultural relevance – zing!)? They’ve all helped pioneer the 3D concert film. Now Alice in Chains joins the gang, filming an upcoming show on their BlackDiamondSkye tour for the in-your-face Avatar experience. Beware flying drumsticks.

The filming goes down in the band’s home turf of Seattle Friday night. Deftones and Mastodon accompany Alice on the tour, but it’s unclear whether they will be part of the film. Neither group has mentioned anything on their website/Facebook/Twitter/LiveJournal/eHarmony. It would seem a waste of surely expensive technology not to include them though. Brent Hinds’ beard in 3D would be truly a sight to behold.

Tickets are still available for Friday’s show, so if you think you’d look good in high-def, buy one here. If you’re elsewhere on the West coast (or ugly), catch them on one of the other dates listed below.
