Jerry Cantrell will get his Brighten Tour started off in Saint Paul on March 24, 2022. This 29 date tour commences at the historic Palace Theatre before weaving its way across North America. The Alice In Chains co-founder is hitting the road in support of his third solo album, Brighten. It has been twenty years since his last solo work was released and this one deviates off the path of the previous albums as one can expect after such a long hiatus. The new collection of songs often takes a turn away from the darker side and head down some previously unexplored avenues. Grab your tickets while you can and head out to see this prolific songwriter.
Tickets are still available here for this 18+ show in downtown Saint Paul.
Beyond the instantly identifiable riffs and equally recognizable vocals, Jerry Cantrell will always be known as a songwriter, first and foremost. Those songs comprise his influential catalog as co-founder, vocalist, and lead guitarist of the iconic Alice In Chains and as a solo artist whose music resounds across culture. He penned two acclaimed solo albums—Boggy Depot  and Degradation Trip Volumes 1 & 2 —and appeared on chart-topping records by everyone from Metallica and Deftones to Ozzy Osbourne. His music can be heard in the films of Academy® Award winner Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow in addition to blockbuster franchises such as John Wick and Spider-Man. Throughout his career, he’s garnered eleven GRAMMY® Award nominations, logged multiple #1 hits at radio, sold north of 30 million records, and received the 2020 Museum of Pop Culture Founders Award as part of Alice In Chains. Not to mention, Guitar World cited him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time.” Additionally, he received the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award from MusiCares in addition to supporting numerous charities over the years. However, he continues to put the songs first on his third full-length solo offering, Brighten. Led by the single “Atone,” these tunes are a worthy addition to Cantrell’s repertoire and the larger American rock ‘n’ roll songbook.
