Let's see....

Facelift - 2 million (copies sold in the US)
Dirt - 4 million
Sap - Gold
Jar Of Flies - 3 million
Alice In Chains - 2 million
Unplugged - Platinum
Black Gives Way To Blue - Gold

Plus, the radio still plays the shit out of their stuff both old and new. I'd say they're good to fill amphiteaters by themselves. Just like their fellow bands from Seattle, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, AIC has been able to maintain a very big following over the last 20 years. Let's not forget, when a band has a lot of hits and name recognition, a lot of people will go to the shows just for that alone.
