Helmet Announce 30th Anniversary Tour of the U.S.

0

It’s been thirty years since Helmet formed and twenty-two years since they last released an album about which the general populace cared, and you know what that means: it’s time for anniversary tour!

And an anniversary tour there shall be. Helmet are calling it the ’30x30x30 Tour,’ because not only are they celebrating their thirtieth birthday, but they’ll be doing so in thirty different cities, playing thirty songs each night, with no opener.

Of course, other than frontman Page Hamilton, none of the band’s current members had anything to do with the releases that made Helmet famous. In fact, most of them have only been in the band for about a third of its storied career. Just a heads up, lest you think like John Stanier or someone is gonna be there.

Dates for the U.S. run are below, courtesy of The PRP. Below that are dates for the European leg of the tour, because I’m in a giving mood.
