Machine Head will perform their “Burn My Eyes” album in full on the band’s upcoming tour, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the record

Machine Head has officially announced the first 2020 North American tour leg in honor of the 25th anniversary of their seminal “Burn My Eyes” album. At the shows, Machine Head will be performing two full sets per night, with the first featuring longtime Machine Head members Robb Flynn and Jared MacEachern with recently announced guitarist Vogg Kie?tyka and drummer Matt Alston. Following a set of their newer material, the band will then bring original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist Logan Mader on the stage to perform “Burn My Eyes” in full.

The trek will set Jan. 16 in Phoenix and move throughout North America, including Canada, before wrapping up at the House of Blues in Anaheim. View the full tour roster below, and find ticket information here.

“So ready to get back on the road in the U.S. Biggest production we have ever had, most insane line-up we have ever had, we have leveled-the-fuck-up for this run!” Flynn said in a statement. “Ready to bring you three hours of blood, sweat, tears, pain, rage, and life-affirming metal.”

MacEachern added, “North America! I promised you tour dates… well, your time has come!! Don’t you dare miss this special moment in musical history, as we pay 25 years of tribute to Burn My Eyes! The band is sounding tight as ever, and the spirits are high. Come relive your adolescent angst and rage with MACHINE HEAD!!”

Logan Mader also stated, “North America! We’re just now finishing rehearsals with full production in Germany for the first leg and holy sh*t… the sound, the lights, the feel and fire are epic beyond anything I’ve ever been a part of!!! Can’t wait to bring it to the USA and Canada aye! My brain is overloaded with excitement, emotion and adrenaline!!!”.

Chris Kontos also stated, “After 24 years have past since I having done any touring in the U.S. with Machine Head I’m so looking forward to bringing this incredible tour to the masses. I can honestly say, I think the U.S. ‘Head Cases’ will be absolutely blown away by the BME 25th Anniversary tour. I can’t wait to destroy the states next year!!!!”
