Join us this coming week in celebrating the life of a true rock and roll legend. The annual Layne Staley tribute three nights of events starts on Thursday, August 22nd and ends on Saturday, August 24th. Below is a timeline, in order of events, if you plan on attending.
Thursday, August 22nd at 7pm (would’ve been Layne’s 52nd birthday); fans gather at the Seattle Center Fountain to celebrate, meet new fans, and welcome returning ones.
Seattle Center Address: 305 Harrison St. Seattle, WA 98109
The same evening is the Layne Staley Acoustic Tribute at the Nectar Lounge. You can get more information by clicking on this link – Layne Staley Acoustic Night.
On Friday, August 23rd is a celebration of Seattle Music. This event will be held at the Hard Rock in Seattle. For more details, click on this link –Seattle Music Tribute at the Hard Rock.
Saturday, August 24 is the main tribute at the iconic Crocodile. Of the years that I’ve attended in which the tribute was held at this venue, it has always sold out. This year should be no different. There are some spectacular singers coming from out of town to sing and celebrate Layne’s life. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click on the link: Layne Staley Tribute 2019.
During the days prior to the evening’s events, you can go visit the many parks Seattle has to offer. The Seattle Center is another place to grab a bite to eat, get souvenirs, or just hang out. Whatever you decide, make it memorable.
