Metal titans Machine Head are heading back to the UK in February 2016, with the band announcing ‘An Evening With Machine Head’ run.
The tour will take them across Europe and the UK, billed as two hours of head throttling riffs and no support bands.
“We’re doing ‘An Evening With’ Machine Head. Meaning: it’ll just be us, folks,” said guitarist and vocalist Robb Flynn. “We are really excited about playing longer sets, throwing in some deep cuts, and just having it be our own world.
“We did this in the US and eastern Europe recently and it’s worked amazingly well. Fans seem to really love the ‘Evening With…’ format for a band like us who has a long-standing and diverse catalogue. While the sets vary from night to night, there were a couple nights on the last run where we reached the 2 hour and 40 minute mark. It was crazy! We could have played all night, the crowd was so insane!”
