I think I’ve opened up a can of worms by saying that the fall tours were starting to come in steady and regularly. Here we go with the latest announced from the Wylde side (LOL) where the Berzerker has unveiled expanded tour dates for his Black Sabbath tribute band “ZAKK SABBATH”. Check out the press, poster and dates. I’ll close us out as usual after all that.
The Press Release:
Zakk Sabbath, the Black Sabbath cover band / super group featuring Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne), bassist Blasko (Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie) and drummer Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age) will embark on their second North American headline tour.
Dates span September 20 through Oct 15 with stops at the High Elevation Rock Fest (http://highelevationfestival.com/) in Denver, CO on September 23rd and the Houston Open Air Fest (http://houstonopenair.com/) in Houston, TX on October 15th. Complete tour dates can be found below.
Tickets will be available this Friday July 21st at ZakkSabbath.LIVE (https://bandsintown.com/zakksabbath) and VIP upgrade packages will be available at ZakkSabbath.VIP (https://soundrink.com/#/tour/zakk-sabbath) on Monday July 24th.
Support will come from Southern California’s THEM EVILS (https://themevils.com/) , who are in support of their newest single and their 2016 self titled / self released debut EP.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m glad to find Zakk expanding the tour dates and to bring them to the attention of the fans that are following this particular adventure of the musician. I’ve not seen this in concert yet myself and have only caught a whole bunch of tunes on YouTube and it does sound pretty damned good. There aren’t any shows that I can easily attend so I will keep on supporting the other stuff that I try to rally you all behind time and time again but should you want to chime in and let me know what you think about the expanded tour please do so down in the comments below. I hope it comes back eventually for me to catch as well.
