Metal fans looking to get off the couch but still bring high levels of cholesterol into their musical systems might want to take note of the latest tour being announced by the mighty Mac Sabbath. Check out the full press release down below. I’ll return briefly at the close.
The Press Release:
Fast food-themed Black Sabbath parody kings MAC SABBATH are announcing their cheesiest tour yet! The band has been hungry to announce their latest plans, and today, are serving up some tasty tour news – MAC SABBATH will head out with the world’s only “Nedal” band, Okilly Dokilly, and oddball openers Playboy Manbaby on the American Cheese Tour! The tour will begin on July 26 in Tempe, AZ and visit many cities across the US, returning to Arizona at its end on September 7 (the last four dates will feature only Playboy Manbaby as support). Tickets are available now via www.officialmacsabbath.com. See below for a full list of dates!
Mysterious MAC SABBATH frontman Ronald Osbourne says, “We are back and stacked with more cheese to please!”
Okilly Dokilly’s Head Ned adds, “The Neds and I are really excited to be back on the road with our favorite McNeighborinos in MAC SABBATH and our buds in Playboy Manbaby. American Cheese is going to be a really fun tour, and we’re ready to kick out the steamed jams this summer.”
Playboy Manbaby’s Robbie Pfeffer says, “We have been told that our families will be returned to us mostly unharmed as long we go on along with this tour and maintain a “good attitude.” We are excited about the prospect of seeing our families again, preferably alive. We would like to thank both Okilly Dokilly and MAC SABBATH for very forcefully allowing us to join them on this tour. We would also like to let them know that, as requested, we have not been in contact with any form of law enforcement and will comply with all current and future demands.”

About MAC SABBATH: Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a MAC SABBATH show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun – MAC SABBATH puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show – complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises… basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams. The band has been named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To”, and as LA’s “Best Tribute Band” by LA Weekly.
MAC SABBATH recently met their inspiration, Ozzy Osbourne, as well as his son Jack and Jack’s daughter Pearl. The meeting can be witnessed via a viral video detailed by Rolling Stone here. Watch more videos of MAC SABBATH here.
About Okilly Dokilly: Established in 2015, Phoenix, Arizona based “Nedal” band Okilly Dokilly found success before even playing their first show, reaching viral phenomenon status after releasing just a few press photos and a four-song demo. Within two weeks, the band netted nearly 30,000 Facebook fans and was featured by numerous publications including Billboard, Time, The Independent, BBC, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Vice and many more. In 2016, the band released their debut album, Howdilly Doodilly – a 13-track catalog filled with Flanderisms, rushing guitars and more than enough left-handed puns.
Okilly Dokilly released their second full-length album, entitled Howdilly Twodilly, on March 29, 2019. Just over a week later, Okilly Dokilly reached pinnacle Ned status when their “White Wine Spritzer” video, which has over 5.4 million views on YouTube and counting, was featured on The Simpsons.
About Playboy Manbaby: Playboy Manbaby is Phoenix, Arizona’s premier Playboy Manbaby tribute band, playing the greatest Playboy Manbaby hits from yesterday and today! But don’t take their word for it, Debra from Fountain Hills says Playboy Manbaby is “pretty good.” We promise to beat the price of any other Playboy Manbaby tribute band on the market. Available for weddings, bar and bat mitvahs, corporate mixers and funerals.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As there are no NYC region dates for me to enjoy this high calorie presentation I will leave the thoughts about it happening to you readers. What do you think about the Fast Food Furies teaming up with their Animated colleagues in Okilly Dokilly? I guess I should use some time to find out what Playboy Manbaby is all about while I wait for you to chime in down below in the comments. See you next time.
