Says MACHINE HEAD founder Robb Flynn, “Really stoked to be heading out in America again, the last tour had so many moments that were so strong and just beyond life affirming!”

Continues Flynn, “It makes me super proud that we have stayed the path playing these intimate venues doing 2 and 1/2 to 3 hour ‘Evening With-style shows’ for the last 8 years. These shows are incredibly rewarding for us as musicians and to people who come out to just go fucking nuts with us. Eight years ago the idea was to provide OUR PEOPLE with an experience no other metal band was/is doing right now, and somehow this crazy idea stuck! Me personally… I’m getting really bored of going to see a band headline for 1 hour and 5 minutes, or trudge 50 miles down to the amphitheater to pay $40 for parking and $15 bucks for beer to see a show, so being able to offer something unique in this day and age feels really good.”

“We’re especially looking forward to the EHH format with Sir Vogg joining us on this upcoming tour. In reality, I see it becoming even a bit more free-form, you might get 5 songs off of ‘The Blackening,’ you might get 5 songs off of ‘Burn My Eyes,’ you might get 5 cover songs! The setlist has changed a little from day to day, and the beer always flows, so come down a bang with us for Electric Happy Hour (Live)!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I haven’t been able to catch Machine Head in concert based on scheduling for a number of years, I can say that they are a force to be reckoned with on the live stage. With these tour dates not stopping anywhere near my own stomping grounds I won’t add to much to the mix. I’ll leave that all up to you so have at it. What do you out there in the readership think about these tour dates? Will you be hitting one of them or even a couple? Chime in down below in the comments section so we know what you think. That’s all I have so I will see you next time. Please stay safe out there.
