Spring kicks off a rash of extensive outings for musicians of all genres, including several country performers and a handful of rock-and-roll acts. From Eric Church and Zac Brown Band to Alice in Chains and The National, music fans have several ticket options that go on sale this weekend.
Alice in Chains -- on the road to support "Black Gives Way to Blue," their first album of new material without late frontman Layne Staley -- kicked off their "BlackDiamondSkye" tour with fellow rockers Deftones and Mastodon.
Already scheduled to hit the road this fall for a triple-bill tour that will also feature Alice In Chains and Mastodon, alt-rockers Deftones have rolled out plans for a summer headlining trek of their own.
