As if winning the Superb Owl weren’t enough of a prize for the City of Seattle, this morning brought news of yet another prize:  Seattle will be the first date in a US tour that for my money will be a must-see event for 2014. Mastodon will be the headliners, with support from Gojira and Kvelertak.

The only problem with this announcement is that while all the press statements note that the tour begins in Seattle, I haven’t yet seen one that says WHERE in Seattle the show will be played, and Seattle is omitted from the usual list of dates and venues that have been appearing — all of which you can see after the jump. If anyone figures out the location, do let me know.

UPDATE (2/10/14): New dates/venues have now been added to the tour schedule, including that Seattle location. I’ve updated the schedule that appears after the post.

Goddamn, I’m excited for this show…

4/28 Seattle, WA @ Showbox SoDo

  2. *skims for Canadian dates*


    • Replace Canada for San Diego, and you get the same result. Guess I gotta haul my ass up to LA for this shindig 🙁

  3. haha, the skull reminds me hard on the BTA Clifton mascot 😀

  4. I was confused about if there is a Seattle show too! If there’s not, I’ll probably lock myself in a box and cry out all the moisture in my body.

    • Yeah, Mastodon and Gojira both have tour dates on their website that don’t show a Seattle show at all, and Kvelertak’s website doesn’t show any of the tour dates yet. This worries me.

    • Ian…If your from Seattle like I am, then (assuming this tour DOES start in Seattle) my guess is they will be playing at Showbox Sodo. Nothing is booked at Sodo or the Market for that date. That’s where they played last time. And Showbox Sodo is about the same size as the Roseland Theater. I would love to see them at Showbox…Market preferably!!

  5. dang, not coming near me. oh well, at least i’ve already seen Mastodon and Kvelertak

  6. Nice to see Gojira isn’t holding the Denver Broncos Super Bowl loss against us Denver denizens.
