After months and months of speculation, we can finally reveal the final lineup for the Summer Slaughter tour 2015… billed as the most extreme tour of the summer. The final lineup will include:
Born of Osiris,
Veil of Maya,
The Acacia Strain,
After The Burial,
plus special guests.
Who could these special guests be? I'm betting it's likely regional openers for the tour. Overall, this is is a lineup I'm down to see, specifically the middle of the lineup, which features a lot of great variety.
The initial routing is as follows:
7/28 – Denver, CO @ The Summit Music Hall
7/30 – Des Moines, IA @ Val Air Ballroom
7/31 – Minneapolis, MN @ Skyway Theater
8/01 – Joliet, IL @ Mojoes
8/02 – Cleveland, OH @ The Agora Theatre
8/03 – Columbus, OH @ The Northland Performing Arts Center
8/05 – Philadelphia, PA @ Electric Factory
8/07 – Montreal, QC @ Heavy MTL*
8/08 – Worcester, MA @ The Palladium
8/09 – Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom
8/12 – New York, NY @ Webster Hall w/ The All Stars Tour
8/13 – Baltimore, MD @ Rams Head Live
8/15 – Knoxville, TN @ The International
8/17 – Dallas, TX @ Gas Monkey Live!
8/18 – Austin, TX @ Empire Control Room & Garage
8/20 – Tempe, AZ @ The Marquee
8/21 – San Diego, CA @ House of Blues
8/22 – Anaheim, CA @ City National Grove Of Anaheim
8/23 – San Francisco, CA @ The Regency Ballroom
The promoters of the fest are promising more dates will be announced shortly. It's interesting that the NY show is billed as a combo with the not-yet-announced All Stars tour. That should be a wild day, as Webster Hall has a few stages in the building, so there could be a lot going on.
VIP tickets are on sale now.
How do you feel about the lineup announcement?
