Mastodon & Clutch Announce “The Missing Link” Tour for Spring 2015

I don’t think that the larger fans who are hitting concerts these days will disagree with me about the astounding number of tours that either don’t make sense in terms of the roster or really are not giving us the best bang for the buck. Fortunately for us, this notion has been given pause as the mighty Mastodon has announced a co-headlining Spring run with Clutch and this amazing team-up will be supported by Graveyard. They’re calling this run “The Missing Link” Tour and you can check out the poster and some details below.

Tour - Mastodon - 2015

Mastodon quotes: “It was a fanboy dream to tour with poetic riffmasters Clutch back in the early 2000s, developing a meaningful kinship with these inspirational Earth Rockers!! We are truly looking forward to teaming up again for a Rock and Roll Stomp across the US with these old-time friends, the time has come!!”

There sure do seem to be a healthy amount of dates for the fans of the US and even some that are heading into Canada. I’ve highlighted our own metro region show for clarity but do peruse the rest so you can mark your calendars.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I can probably sum up my thoughts with a very simple “Oh Hell Yes” because this is going to crush for sure. Mastodon alone is worth the price of admission and when you add the Funky sounds of Clutch to the mix along with Graveyard its win, win, win, win. Is that enough wins for you? I sure hope so because if this doesn’t spark your interest just a little bit then I think you are browsing the wrong kind of website. I’ve seen Mastodon several times over the last few years but have not caught Clutch for some time and have yet to see Graveyard so I am kind of psyched about it. Let me add to my own excitement about this show happening in Central Park on the Summerstage. Wowzawow this is going to be awesome. What do you readers think about it? Are you as excited as I am and will you attend? If you said “yes” to that inquiry then you best get on point to order tickets as I expect they will go fast for this one. Our regional show is outdoors since it’s the park so I am hoping for a pleasant day. One can only hope that winter will finally have ended since our show is towards the end of May but since the brutality of this season has been so much who knows what we shall be facing come May. Tickets will began their sale on 1/23/15.
