    OTTTO and Bastardane have announced a Summer 2023 co-headlining North American tour, including Metallica Weekend 2023 Takeover performances in various cities.

    The trek kicks off August 5th in New York and runs through September 2nd in Phoenix. Shows in New York, Montreal, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Phoenix will be part of the Metallica Weekend 2023 Takeover (where Metallica will be playing nearby stadium shows), as will two additional fall dates in St. Louis (November 4th) and Detroit (November 11th).

    A Live Nation ticket pre-sale begins Tuesday (June 27th) at 10 a.m. ET via Ticketmaster using the code DISCO. General ticket sales begin Friday (June 30th) at 10 a.m. local time. You can also look for deals or get tickets to sold-out dates via StubHub, where your purchase is 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s Fan Protect program.

    The tour is of particular interest to Metallica fans, as OTTTO notably features Tye Trujillo, son of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, while James Hetfield’s son Castor plays drums for Bastardane.


    “We love music and we love the boys in OTTTO,” remarked Castor in a press release for the tour. “WARNING: Mayhem, insanity, and ascension may occur.”
