King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Announce 2020 North American Tour Dates

 

 

 

SET TO PERFORM THREE-HOUR

CAREER-SPANNING MARATHON SHOWS

AT THE GREEK THEATRE BERKELEY AND RED ROCKS

 

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced a run of 2020 North American tour dates, set to take place in between their unprecedented career-spanning marathon sets at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA and Red Rocks in Morrison, CO. These new dates are set to begin April 19 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR and will end on May 2 at Franklin Music Hall in Philadelphia, PA just days before their two-night Red Rocks run. All dates will feature support from Leah Senior. The artist presale for these new dates begins on Wednesday, December 11 at 12pm EST, and they will go on sale to the general public on Friday, December 13 at 12pm EST. See below for the full itinerary.

Due to popular demand, the band has now added a second career-spanning marathon show at Red Rocks on May 5, 2020, the day before the originally scheduled May 6 performance. These performances will run for three hours and incorporate material from all 15 of the band’s records without repeating a single song between sets.

 

 

King Gizzard also embarked on a massive world tour this year, with U.S. highlights including Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre, NYC’s Central Park Summerstage, Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club and many more. The band then went on to perform across Europe and Asia, and will resume touring with a run of festivals starting in Jakarta, Indonesia in November. See below for the full list of currently-announced tour dates.

 

Before releasing the “Mars For The Rich” video game, the band shared three singles from the album — the wildly heavy “Planet B,” the chugging “Self-Immolate,” and the blastbeat-laden “Organ Farmer” — and their absurdly dark accompanying videos. These new tracks prove that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard aren’t mere dabbling dilettantes when it comes to thrash and metal. Their love of this ferocious music runs deep, and was previously explored on 2017’s apocalyptic concept album Murder Of The Universe, hinted at during the award-winning Nonagon Infinity’s more bludgeoning moments and elsewhere in numerous hardcore psychedelic freak-outs in their back catalogue.
