ALICE IN CHAINS: Video Of Last Night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Acoustic Performance Available

In their first late-night network performance in more than 10 years, ALICE IN CHAINS appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" for two consecutive nights on Tuesday, September 29 and Wednesday, September 30. The appearances followed ALICE IN CHAINS' sold-out national tour and coincided with the September 29 release of the band's new album, "Black Gives Way to Blue" (Virgin/EMI).

The much-buzzed-about event kicked off Tuesday on the Bud Light Outdoor Stage — the largest outdoor stage among the late night talk shows — with an electrifying performance in the middle of Hollywood.

On Wednesday, September 30, ALICE IN CHAINS performed a special intimate acoustic set on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"'s indoor lobby stage. The performance once again included one song from new album "Black Gives Way to Blue" and one classic hit. The September 30 show spotlighted new acoustic track, "Your Decision".

Video footage of ALICE IN CHAINS performing "No Excuses" and "Your Decision" on last night's "Kimmel" broadcast can be viewed below. (Note: The program only included a portion of "No Excuses", but the complete version is available here.)

According to Hits Daily Double, the companion web site of music industry tip sheet HITS, "Black Gives Way To Blue" is on track to sell between 130,000 and 140,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD will likely land in the Top 5 of next week's The Billboard 200 chart, behind latest albums from PARAMORE, MARIAH CAREY, BARBRA STREISAND and BREAKING BENJAMIN.
