The “Bay Area Strikes Back” Tour with Testament, Exodus, and Death Angel Could Hit the U.S. Next Year


Testament, Exodus, and Death Angel announced a “Bay Area Strikes Back” tour in late July. To the disdain of anyone living in North America, there are 25 cities on the epic trek, none of which are in the States. This has left every metalhead in the states thinking, “Europe gets all the good shit, will this tour be coming to a city near me?”

A recent YouTube video posted by Exodus frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza hints that it may. While chatting and playing a game of Go Fish with Testament’s Chuck Billy and Death Angel’s Mark Osegueda over a couple of tall beers, Zetro offered the following:

“Let’s do it, early 2020, Europe first. First Europe, we’ll see how that goes and then maybe the rest of the world.”

My bet is that the tour will make a killing in Europe, after which they’ll come back to the states to give us a tour of major cities. After all, the tour IS called “Bay Area Strikes Back,” so don’t they have to at least strike back in the Bay Area once? Not to mention that our bodies are ready and we are willing and able to let these bands take our damn money.

If you are lucky enough to either live or be in Europe in February/March of next year, then you’re in luck. Tour dates can be found below the video.
