Machine Head have today announced the second European leg of their 25 Year Anniversary tour for the band’s classic debut, Burn My Eyes.
The second massive round of tour dates kick off in Spain on 19th April in Zaragoza, and continue across Portugal, Eastern Europe, Russia, Scandinavia, wrapping in Birmingham and London at the legendary Alexandra Palace on June 5th and 6th.
Building on their wildly popular "Evening With…" format, these not-to-be-missed shows will be a three-hour musical extravaganza, comprised of two parts:
Part I - will feature a battery of Machine Head’s modern classics, such as "Imperium", "Halo", "Ten Ton Hammer" and "The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears," featuring frontman/guitarist Robb Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern performing alongside two, soon-to-be-announced ragers on guitar and drums.
Part II - will feature the Bay Area titan’s classic debut album, Burn My Eyes played in its entirety for the first time ever. And if somehow this historical event could not be monumental enough, taking the stage for this part of the set will be Burn My Eyes-era alumni and Machine Head’s original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist, Logan Mader.
"While we all expected the first round of dates to do well, no one could have predicted the frankly mind-boggling attendance numbers with Paris selling out in 1 hour and London selling out in 8 hours," band founder and visionary, Robb Flynn said in a statement. "We want everyone to have the opportunity to take part in this very special, once-in-a-lifetime-event, and as promised, we are bringing this around the globe well into Dec 2020. So stoked to bring this event to so many territories that we can't always get to, and ending at Alexandra Palace will, be monu-MENTAL!"
Tickets go on general sale at 10am local time, Friday 20th September, with VIP pre-sale going live at 10am on Wednesday 18th September
