Looks like the Rockstar Uproar Festival is getting a hefty dose of 90′s awesomeness as grunge legends Alice In Chains have been announced as the headlining act for the tour. Their direct support is 90′s rock giant Jane’s Addiction, whose 2011 album The Great Escape Artist is still something I play frequently (seriously, it’s a great album). Also on the main stage will be prog rockers Coheed And Cambria and Circa Survive.

I think it’s going to be a fun tour and we’re really looking forward to it. It’s only going to happen that one time, that way, and you’re going to be there,” says Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains.

The second stage will see performances from Middle Class Rut, Walking Papers, New Politics, Danko Jones, Chuck Shaffer Picture Show, and the local winner of the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands. All tour dates can be seen below.
