Alice in Chains rolled into Pittsburgh and put on an amazing show at The Benedum Center for Performing Arts. The 2,800-seat theater is most commonly used for Broadway musicals, opera, ballet, and other types of performances where the audience is not wearing jeans and black tees with the names of bands on them. The band did not disappoint. Jerry Cantrell and the rest of the band put together a 90 minute set that had the crowd jamming along from start to finish.
While the sound was amazing, the lighting during the first three songs proved to be challenging as far as photographing the show. And with the lack of a photo pit, most shots were taken from the extreme left and right sides of the stage. For most of the shots my settings were around ISO 1600-2500 with shutter speeds between 1/125 and 1/200, all wide open at an aperture of f/2.8
