MACHINE HEAD Announce Trio of North American Headline DatesWednesday, 17th April 2013
MACHINE HEAD have announced the “Road to Mayhem Tour,” which will see them doing select headline dates, and support gigs to ROB ZOMBIE prior to their run on this Summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest. The dates listed are specifically catered to not conflict with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival summer tour where MACHINE HEAD are headlining the Jägermeister USA stage.
Says Robb Flynn: “We love playing in these markets, the fans in these places don’t have the luxury of a hundred shows a month, they’re starving for metal, and they f**king lose their marbles and go BANANAS when MACHINE HEAD come there!!”
Phil Demmel: “All right Summer ’13, whatcha got?!?! West Coast MACHINE HEAD headlining shows before The Mayhem Fest, that’s what! Look out Spokane, Portland and Fresno, prepare to be F**KED UP!! We’ll see you there!!”
MACHINE HEAD will also be playing four post-Mayhem Festival support dates with Rob Zombie including this years Sturgis Bike Rally and Montreal Canada’s premier metal festival Heavy MTL 2013.
Dave McClain lent his thoughts on sharing the stage with Zombie: “Our summer just got even better! Pretty excited to be doing a few Rob Zombie shows after Mayhem and also Heavy MTL in Montreal!”
