BlackDiamondSkye tour dates announced


Sometimes rumors never come to fruition. Other times they do, and make for the greatest news of the day. This is certainly the case for metal heads, who can now do a collective fist pump: the Alice in Chains + Deftones + Mastodon North American tour is official.

Dubbed the “BlackDiamondSkye” tour — the name is a mish-mash of the bands’ most current releases: Black Gives Way to Blue, Diamond Eyes, and Crack the Skye. Get it? — the trek currently has the three metal powers traveling across North America for a month, starting September 16th in Chicago. Plus, according to Rock It Out! Blog, even more dates are expected to be announced in the weeks ahead.

Tickets on sale dates are as followed: Vancouver on May 15th; Toronto on May 20th; and everywhere else on May 22nd.
