Melvins Tour Diary (part 3): joining Cheap Trick on stage, a Totally Nude mishap & more

You’ve seen part one and part two and now here’s part three of the Melvins‘ ongoing tour diary that we’re hosting here on BrooklynVegan. Check out the third tour diary installment in the gallery above.

Part 3 involves the Melvins joining Cheap Trick on stage when Cheap Trick’s tour with Poison hit Kansas City the same night Melvins played there. Plus: a cute dog backstage in Louisville, White Castle for breakfast, a tequila shot to celebrate the birthday of one of their two current bassists, Steven McDonald, a life-size Elvis Presley, and, in Buzz Osborne’s own words, “Jeff and Steven kicked out of Totally Nude for being totally nude. Talk about misunderstanding the instructions that were clearly posted ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING!!”

See much more in the gallery above (complete with commentary from Buzz) and stay tuned for future installments of the tour diary. The Melvins are taking June off but their tour picks back up in July and continues through August, including an LA show with Boris. All remaining dates are listed below.

Watch Cheap Trick and the Melvins play “Surrender” together in Kansas City:
