Mr. Bungle will be joining forces with the Melvins and Spotlights for the resurrection of Ipecac Recordings’ storied Geek Show tour. The West coast trek is scheduled to kick off on May 11th in Los Angeles, CA and will run through May 23rd in Oakland, CA. Tickets go on sale this Friday (27th) at 10:00 AM local time.


Mike Patton comments:

“The Geek Show tours of the past were some of the best live show experiences I’ve ever had. Hanging out with friends that are also some of my favorite musicians is a great way to spend a couple weeks. This iteration is a mindblower. You will want to be the first one there and the last to leave this party! The mighty Melvins and Spotlights will prove to be a challenge for Mr. Bungle to follow. I only wish we could take this package around the globe.”


Ipecac Recordings Co-owner Greg Werckman adds: 

“It was always nice to be able to coordinate schedules and put a bunch of Ipecac bands together on the road. This is a fantastic lineup. All three bands deliver in their powerful and unique way. I wish it could have been an eight band bill. Hopefully this is only the beginning in getting the Geek Shows going again. Enjoy!”
