Korn and Alice in Chains in Birmingham

Korn’s last show in Birmingham was in 2016. Alice and Chains played in 2018 at the BJCC. Want to know how many times they’ve toured here together? None. I feel good about this rock pairing and my mind is already blown thinking about possible collab scenarios between the two bands onstage. Yup. I’m in.
