MACHINE HEAD's Robb Flynn Announces Acoustic Solo Performances - Details Available!
Recently, MACHINE HEAD's "General" Robb Flynn performed an acoustic set at the Tony La Russa (yes, the baseball legend) "Stars To The Rescue XXII" benefit event. By now we are all familiar with Flynn's acoustic work thanks to songs like "Darkness Within" (part of 'Unto The Locust') and "Die Young" (BLACK SABBATH cover in honor of Debbie Abono and Ronnie James Dio).
Following his acoustic performance, we asked Flynn via Twitter what his plans are regarding an acoustic project and the time he replied: "Thinking about it."
Well, it seems like Flynn is taking his musical talents and an acoustic guitar for a mini tour of California. Here is the official press release, followed by the tour dates:
"In anticipation of his upcoming acoustic performance Friday, January 25th at NAMM, Robb has decided to book 4 acoustic shows at various bars and intimate clubs in the greater Orange County/Los Angeles area. He will be performing a mix of cover songs and re-interpreted Machine Head songs, so if you're around, come on down!"
The tour dates are as follows:
- Mon Jan 21st: On The Rox, Hollywood, CA
- Wed Jan 23rd: Mission Tobacco Lounge, Riverside, CA
- Thu Jan 24th: Brick By Brick, San Diego, CA
- Sat Jan 26th: The Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen, Fullerton, CA
NOTE: Robb will be performing at 9:30PM on all nights, check venue websites for support and other info.
As these shows are very last minute please "share" this as much as possible, re-post, re-tweet, and spread the word in whatever way you can.
Recently, MACHINE HEAD released 'Machine Fucking Head Live' via Roadrunner Records (Pick it up HERE!). It's Machine Head's second live effort; 'Hellalive' was released in 2003. Nine years have passed and Machine Head still slay and administer a "Bay Area Beatdown" in the live realm. Full details HERE!
