If you’re a fan of metal music and don’t mind a short drive this weekend, Reno might be your place to hang out. Iconic ‘90s rock band Alice in Chains brings their brand of alternative grunge to Grand Sierra Resort and Casino on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9 p.m.

“Over the course of their remarkable career, Alice in Chains has garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and amassed a die-hard international fan base whose members number in the millions.

“Alongside Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, Alice in Chains was one of the Big Four to emerge from Seattle in the 1990s and went on to change the sound of modern rock,” states the band’s managing team at Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group.

The group, formed in Seattle, Washington, is known for hits such as “Man in the Box,” “No Excuses” and “Would?” — the latter of which received recognition in the 1992 movie “Singles” and an MTV Video Music Award for Best Video from a Film.

The four-person band currently includes original members Jerry Cantrell, guitarist, and Sean Kinney, drummer, along with Mike Inez, who replaced bassist Mike Starr in 1993, and William DuVall, who took over as lead vocalist in 2006.

Tickets for the 9 p.m. show start at $41.28, plus tax and fees.

Grand Sierra Resort and Casino is located at 2500 E 2nd Street in Reno, Nevada.
