8th LAYNE STALEY ITALIAN TRIBUTE 2018
OMAGGIO A LAYNE STALEY, CHRIS CORNELL E KURT COBAIN

SABATO 31 MARZO SERRAGLIO (Via Gualdo Priorato 5, Milano) 

Per l’8° anno consecutivo l’Italia ospita il benefit-show in onore di Layne Staley, carismatico cantante degli Alice in Chains scomparso nel 2002. L’evento sarà anche l’occasione per ricordare altre due icone del rock anni ’90: Kurt Cobain dei Nirvana e Chris Cornell, voce dei Soundgarden, recentemente e inaspettatamente scomparso. Staley, Cobain e Cornell, con Eddie Vedder dei Pearl Jam furono gli artefici dell’ascesa planetaria di quel movimento che, nato nelle cantine di Seattle, sconvolse il modo di fare rock tanto da essere definito come l’ultima vera rivoluzione musicale.
