It was a huge bummer when the organizers of the Lamb of God, Dethklok, Gojira tour announced they had to cancel due to Randy Blythe's ongoing detainment in the Czech Republic. This resulted in a slew of big festival cancellations, including the Heavy TO and Heavy MTL festivals for both Lamb of God and Dethklok.
But Gojira wasn't going to give up that easily. They already had their gear rented, their visas cleared… they were going to Heavy TO and MTL! Those shows are still on for them, and the band figured, hey, why not play some shows along the way.
They have announced
two three shows so far, New York, Cleveland and Worcester, MA. I bought my NY ticket the soonest I could, because a previous Gojira headlining show was one of my favorite concert experiences ever. Go see this band!
