Alice In Chains will be honored with a Founders Award by the Museum Of Pop Culture during its annual fundraising event that will be held on December 1st. The nonprofit institution based in Seattle is recognizing the work of band, who were formed in 1987 and have sold more than 30 million records worldwide.
The one-night-only benefit will feature performances not only by Alice in Chains, but also a lineup of acclaimed musicians who will put their own twist on some of the band’s most iconic songs. MoPOP Executive Director Alexis Lee said in a statement: “The influence of Alice in Chains is woven into the fabric of Seattle music history and we’re thrilled to honor them with this year’s Founders Award. While circumstance has moved our annual fundraiser online, we’re excited that people around the world will be able to be a part of our creative community and experience the band and an amazing line-up of tribute artists.”
The Museum’s doors were closed for six months due to COVID-19 .
