Today I had two press releases in my inbox about tours. Neither of them struck me as particularly interesting, but I could see how they could be of some relevance to some of our readers. So with my hand forced, here goes:
The first is probably the most exciting to me, although it's another tour coming (as of yet) stopping nowhere near me, so I begrudgingly file it under ‘don’t care’. Meat Loaf, in support of his most recent album, the conceptual ‘Hang Cool Teddy Bear’ is taking the road. Right now the only announced dates are on the east coast, but I'm told more will follow. You can see what we have confirmed thus far after the jump.
Second and finally, the Summer Slaughter tour has officially unveiled the complete list of stops and the trek's lineup. According to Ash Avildsen, the tour’s founder and booking agent, “This is focused on underground extreme metal rather than mainstream metal. All our shows also have air conditioning.” I suppose should my office's air conditioning fail me on August 14th, I'll hit up the SLC stop of the tour but otherwise, I'm gonna pass. All the *chug-chugging* would simply not agree with this old man’s eardrums. You can see the tour's lineup and stops after the jump, just beyond the Metal Loaf dates.
