Yet Another Date Added to the Mr. Bungle and Melvins Tour
Last month, the eclectic madmen within Mr. Bungle and the Melvins announced that they were once again hitting the road together for a trek all over the western part of the U.S. It was a small slate of shows that — while exciting — was limited by the number of appearances. Then they added an additional night in Seattle, Washington and Oakland, California to bring the total number of shows to nine.
Well, if you were unsure you could make it out to one of the three shows in California already on the docket, you can rest a little easier, as the band recently announced that they will be hitting the Fox Theater Pomona in Pomona, California on May 10.
Back when the tour was announced, Mike Patton said in a statement that he was excited to tour with his friends in the Melvins yet again.
“The Geek Show tours of the past were some of the best live show experiences I’ve ever had. Hanging out with friends that are also some of my favorite musicians is a great way to spend a couple weeks. This iteration is a mindblower. You will want to be the first one there and the last to leave this party! The mighty Melvins and Spotlights will prove to be a challenge for Mr. Bungle to follow. I only wish we could take this package around the globe.”
The tour will now kick off on May 10 in Pomona and come to a screaming halt at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, on May 24. As previously mentioned, Spotlights will provide support for the 10 date tour.
The slate of shows will be Mr. Bungle’s first shows in the states in front of a live audience since before the pandemic hit. Unfortunately, vocalist Mike Patton suffered some mental health setbacks during that time that forced concert cancellations not just for Mr. Bungle, but Faith No More as well.
Thankfully, Mike’s gotten professional help and he’s since reminded the world just how fucking badass he is, so the following dates should be fucking awesome. Just take a look at the schedule and see when Mr. Bungle, the Melvins, and Spotlights hit a venue near you. Tickets are on sale now, so be sure to grab yours today.
