And, well, the opening act really ingratiated themselves with the headliners on Monday night (September 5) when they came out during Alice in Chains’ set with a special birthday cake for Alice in Chains’ lead singer, William DuVall, singing the frontman, “Happy Birthday.”
Thunderpussy lead singer Molly Sides held the vanilla-frosted cake, smiling bright (as you can see from the photos below). Sides was followed by her musical compatriots holding balloons, blowing noise-makers, and celebrating the occasion.
DuVall shared the sight on social media, writing on Instagram, “Last night at the Shoreline Amphitheater literally was a party – an onstage birthday party for me one day early. I want to thank my AIC brothers and our awesome crew (especially Lindsey Long) for outfitting the backstage so festively and then bringing the party ONSTAGE. I want to thank the girls in @thunderpussiez (great band) for presenting me my cake.
“I want to thank the always-fantastic Bay Area audience for singing me “Happy Birthday.” And I want to thank my wife, @theresamduvall, for being here, for capturing the video (swipe to see), and for all she does to make every day special. I only wish my baby boy (now 13!) could be here but he’s in school and I will see him soon. I love you all and I’m tremendously grateful. 📷: @inautonomy 📹: @theresamduvall #aliceinchains #tour2022”
And he added on Twitter, “Thank you to my @AliceInChainsbrothers and our crew, the ladies from @thunderpussy, our amazing Bay Area audience at the Shoreline Amphitheater, & my wife, @tressvv, for making my birthday very special! [Photo by] Scott Dachroeden #aliceinchains #tour2022“
Added Thunderpussy on Instagram, “Happy Birthday @williamduvallofficial. Thunderpussy loves you! Such a special moment celebrating with you last night”
The rollicking rock band shared a video of the moment, too, which you can see in their post below.
