Lots of people are fans of Alice in Chains, but did you know tennis’ own sister pair Venus and Serena Williams also love the Seattle band? They made an appearance at Alice’s recent show in West Palm Beach, Florida and took pictures with them as well.
The rockers, who recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of their beloved second album Dirt, are currently on the road with Bush and Breaking Benjamin. They performed at the iThink Financial Amphitheater in West Palm Beach on the weekend of October 1, where the Williams sisters were in attendance.
“Excellence personified. So honored to have the Williams sisters, Serena Williams and Venus Williams, attending our show in West Palm Beach,” frontman William DuVall wrote in the caption of a photo he posted with the athletes. . “So great to see them rocking in front and to the sides. Even better to see that they are so cool and down to earth as people. Like meeting long lost cousins at a family reunion , only they happen to be, in my opinion, the best to ever grace a tennis court, besides being true AIC fans. Great night.”
Bassist Mike Inez also posted a photo with the sisters of the night, writing, “Venus Williams stood in front of us singing all the songs and Serena Williams was next with my bass tech. It sounded like everyone needed to shake the shit up after Hurricane Ian hit.”
Jerry Cantrell also posted his own collection of photos and noted in the caption that they were “honored by the presence” of the sisters. See the messages of the three musicians below.
Serena Williams definitely seems to have a love for rock music, revealing during a Jimmy Kimmel live 2021 appearance of her Green Day superfandom, often requesting that the band play the deeper cut “Disappearing Boy” at any shows she may have attended. The two sisters were also present at Pearl Jam’s recent concert at Madison Square Garden, which took place on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Eddie Vedder shouted out to the duo and handed them a tambourine.
Alice’s tour resumes tomorrow night (October 4) in Charlotte, North Carolina and wraps up later in the week in Mansfield, Mass. Get tickets through this link.
