Gojira & Mastodon announce co-headlining North American tour with Lorna Shore
Official press release:
Teaming up for what promises to be an unforgettable jaunt of epic proportions, Grammy Award-nominated French heavy metal luminaries Gojira will join forces with iconic Grammy Award-winning heavy rock band Mastodon for a massive co-headline tour across North America in 2023. "The Mega-Monsters Tour" finds these two juggernauts taking over arenas and amphitheaters throughout the Spring and Summer, alternating closing sets each night.
The tour kicks off at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, OR on April 18th and includes stops at legendary venues such as the Forum in Los Angeles, CA on April 21st. The first leg concludes at Santander Arena in Reading, PA on May 11th and resumes with a second leg that runs August 9th through September 2nd. Special guest Lorna Shore serves as direct support on all dates. Fan pre-sales for tickets begin January 18th at 10:00am local time and include both Mastodon and Gojira artist pre-sales, alongside Blabbermouth, Spotify and local promoter / venue / radio pre-sales. General on-sale will launch January 20th at 10:00am local time with VIP ticket packages available at www.gojira-music.com and www.mastodonrocks.com.
Mastodon hit the road in support of their critically acclaimed ninth studio album, Hushed And Grim. Meanwhile, Gojira are out supporting their seventh full-length album, Fortitude, which garnered a Grammy Award nomination in the category of "Best Metal Performance" for "Amazonia." These two titans previously canvased North America together in 2014, and this reunion represents yet another major milestone in their respective careers.

Keith Buckley fuming
Replace Lorna Bore with Emmure and I'm in.
Radio pre-sales are stoked. KLBJ 93.7 fm is the rock of Austin. Buckley never had radio pre-sales.
mastodon level for lorna shore. turnstile got bumped in favor of them
LOL You cannot fool anyone with that Minnesota date, guys. You can't say it is in Minneapolis when the venue is 1h 30m northwest from Minneapolis.
who are these boomers? leaving after lorna shore! love that part where he goes ehrrr ehrrrrrrrrrr EHRRRRRRRRRRRRR EHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRR.... WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Cant wait to buy my tickets on Groupon for $12 a week before the show.
no philly but READING, PA lol
Lorna Shore being on this tour is a crime against music.
Lol. Lorna Shore gonna go over like a wet fart with the older fanbase of these 2 bands. And their fans aren't gonna pay $50-$60 just to see them for 30 minutes.
Is this Mastodon level?
-Keith Buckley fuming- More like chained down in his cuck shed practicing his next spoken word show while Angie is getting her back blown out by some fat bald trucker in the RV.
^ Thanks to Biden's inflation, you need Lorna Shore to be Mastodon level.
^^^thanks to your mom's alcoholism, you're a moron
Why is that retard Brent Hinds still playing in a metal band? I thought he hated it.
"rick_tocchet 1 hour ago Cant wait to buy my tickets on Groupon for $12 a week before the show." I assume that's probably the top of what you can afford, so makes sense.
"Why is that retard Brent Hinds still playing in a metal band? I thought he hated it." the sweet, sweet cash
Mexico will pay for zee wall, haw haw haw
edging aficionados are ecstatic
What a terrible lineup. Gojira is just easycore with a tube screamer.
I would rather get my first Vax than see this shit
Brent Hinds is a f*cking asshole!
Will only attend if From Mars to Sirius is played in full. WWWHHHAAALLLEEESSS!!!!!!!!!
Guitar center employees are stoked
Isn't gay marriage legal?
