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.

I was at that show, it was great. They did "Love, Hate, Love" and Brent Hinds and I geeked out

That's one of the only local AiC shows I've missed in the last few years. Porcupine Tree was playing their special show the same night down the road.

This seems strange for Uproar. Popular acts but different from previous years. I wonder if this would attract the usual Uproar crowd or if they are just trying to bring in new people. I want to see AiC again but would probably wait until they come around on their own.

While I'm not sure on who will play I would bet that the opening bands on the main stage and the small stage is made up entirely of radio rock bands.

One thing a lot of people are not aware of is that the tour organizer worked for Lollapalooza, Guns N' Roses (Illusions era I believe) and several other bands through out the years. He has numerous contacts with bands. Since Lollapalooza is not a tour any longer and with the resurgence of Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, a alternative rock/grunge type of tour would fill a void for fans of those genres right now. It will be interesting to see who the other bands are on the tour.
