Machine Head announce North American ‘Burn My Eyes’ 25th anniversary tour

Posted by on October 7, 2019

Machine Head have finally announced North American tour dates to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Burn My Eyes. While the group has recently enlisted Decapitated guitarist Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka and Devilment drummer Matt Alston for their current European trek, we aren’t sure who will be added for Part I of their North American trek as the band promises they will announce the “ragers” on guitar and drums soon. 

The tour will continue to be An Evening With as Part II will feature the group’s classic debut record played entirely by original drummer Chris Kontos, original guitarist Logan Mader as well as frontman/guitarist Rob Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern. The tour is scheduled to kick off on January 16th in Phoenix, AZ and will run through February 22nd in Anaheim, CA. Tickets go on sale this Friday (11th) at 10AM local time. 

Flynn expressed his excitement:

“North American Head Cases, you have been patiently waiting for what seems like for-goddamned-EVER, thank you for your patience, but we are now ready to CRUSH YOUR FUCKING SKULLS!!  So ready to get back on the road in the US. Biggest production we have ever had, most insane line-up we have ever had, we have leveled-the-fuck-up for this run! Ready to bring you 3 hours of blood, sweat, tears, pain, rage, and life-affirming metal.  Let’s fucking do this!!”

MacEachern adds:

“North America! I promised you tour dates… well, your time has come!! Don’t you dare miss this special moment in musical history, as we pay 25 years of tribute to Burn My Eyes! The band is sounding tight as ever, and the spirits are high. Come relive your adolescent angst and rage with MACHINE HEAD!!”

Mader commented:

“North America! We’re just now finishing rehearsals with full production in Germany for the first leg and holy sh*t… the sound, the lights, the feel and fire are epic beyond anything I’ve ever been a part of!!! Can’t wait to bring it to the USA and Canada aye! My brain is overloaded with excitement, emotion and adrenaline!!!”

Kontos added: 

“After 24 years have past since I having done any touring in the U.S. with Machine Head I’m so looking forward to bringing this incredible tour to the masses. I can honestly say, I think the U.S. “Head Cases” will be absolutely blown away by The BME 25th Anniversary tour. I can’t wait to destroy the states next year!!!!”
