Machine Head Announce An Evening With Headline Tour This Winter

an eveneing with machine head

The kings of the American metal scene, Machine Head will embark upon a headline tour in the format of “An Evening With”. The tour is focused on smaller venues and no national openers. The band has done the evening with format occasionally in their career, always favoring fan favorite songs and deep cuts. This tour follows the recent announcement the band would play no arena tours, no headline festivals or similar fests for the entire album and tour cycle of the just released Bloodstone and Diamonds (Nuclear Blast).



Official Press Release:

Bay Area Metal Titans Machine Head will headline an exclusive tour starting this January, which will span all across North America! No support bands. No locals. Just a crushing two-hour set of pure fucking MACHINE HEAD!!!

“We’re doing ‘An Evening With’ MACHINE HEAD. Meaning: it’ll just be us, folks,” commented guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn. “We are really excited about the idea, playing longer sets, throwing in some deep cuts, and just having our own world. Promoters in the US seem really stoked about it, some have said it feels like ‘an event’.”

In regards to the band’s decision to only headline for this touring cycle as well as no longer play festivals, Flynn elaborates:

“We’re not trying to have a good time with a bunch of people who don’t know who we are. If Machine Headthrows a party, big or small, we don’t want a bunch of ‘strangers’ there. This is about us and you guys, the die-hards! The Fucking Undesirables! We don’t care about the others out there. We’re here and we’re not going anywhere, if those people want to be a part of this, they know where to find us. So for the time being, and maybe ‘forever’ we’re done reaching out for them.”

V.I.P. ticket packages are now on sale at! Packages include a meet and greet with the band, group photo with MACHINE HEAD, poster, flag, laminate, and Machine Headkoozie. In addition, everyone that purchases the VIP experience will be entered in a drawing to win an autographed Bloodstone & Diamonds electric guitar!
