Alice in Chains will take the stage for the first time in 2012 at the upcoming MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert in Los Angeles. The event will honor AIC singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell, and will also feature performances from Duff McKagan, Billy Idol, Mark Lanegan and more.

Alice in Chains have been working on their second album since bringing vocalist William DuVall into the fold, but will take a break from the sessions for an upcoming event honoring their co-founder and primary songwriter, Jerry Cantrell.

Cantrell is set to be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan award, in recognition of his contributions to the MusiCares MAP fund — which provides recovery resources to musicians that struggle with addiction. The cause is undoubtedly close to Cantrell’s heart — the band not only lost frontman Layne Staley to addiction in 2002, but former bassist Mike Starr in 2011.

MusiCares just announced the official lineup for their May 31 charity event, which, in addition to Alice in Chains, will feature performances from Duff McKagan, Billy Idol, Heart and Screaming Trees / Queens of the Stone Age singer-guitarist Mark Lanegan, among others.

The event takes place at Los Angeles’ Club Nokia and has general admission balcony tickets available for $55, while VIP floor seats will fetch $1,250 a pop. All proceeds from the benefit dinner and concert will go to the MusiCares MAP fund.
