GWAR

2015 marks GWAR's 30th anniversary and the band is heading out on a tour this fall to celebrate. The "30 Years of Total Domination Tour" starts August 25 in Millvale, PA and closes out in Rochester, NY on September 18 with Butcher Babies and Battlecross on support for all dates.

NYC proper isn't on the tour's schedule but it comes to Long Island's Paramount on September 17. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/1) at 10 AM with venue presale starting Wednesday (4/29) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

The dates follow this year's edition of the annual GWAR-B-Q in Richmond, VA which features Descendents, Down, The Dickies and more.

Down are heading out on a tour of their own around their appearance at the festival. The "Eastbound 'N' Down" tour stops at Jersey's Starland Ballroom on August 14. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/1) at 10 AM with AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/29) at 10 AM.

All upcoming dates for GWAR and Down are listed along with a video of GWAR covering The Pet Shop Boys below...
