Alice In Chains

Blackdiamondskye Tour

Special Guests: Deftones and Mastodon

Monday September 20, 2010

Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville, CT


About The Tour:

On April 29, 2010 the Blackdiamondskye Tour was announced after a series of videos were posted on YouTube followed by a countdown to the announcement. The bands involved – Alice In Chains with special guests Deftones and Mastodon – called the tour Blackdiamondskye after each of the band’s most then-most recent albums: Alice In Chains “Black Gives Way to Blue,” Deftones’ “Diamond Eyes,” and Mostodon’s “Crack the Skye.” The Alice In Chains album “Black Gives Way To Blue” was the band’s first studio album to feature new vocalist William Duvall.

The 19-city North American tour kicked off in Chicago on September 16, 2010 and wrapped up in Nevada exactly a month later. The fourth show into the tour was at Mohegan Sun Arena. Below is the setlist from that show.
