What started as a four week and 25 show tour has grown now to 45 dates booked in America and Canada with a East Coast and European leg of dates in the works for 2019! The first date in Europe is already confirmed for April 13, 2019 at Delta Metal Meeting in Germany followed by the East Coast of the US in May/June 2019.
A special edition DVD “40Th Anniversary, Live in Germany” of last year’s crushing show at the Bang Your Head Festival in Germany will be available directly from the band starting Aug 31st at the first show of the tour in Santa Rosa CA at the University of Rock. The DVD will be available only at the shows and online through the VICIOUS RUMORS social media sites.
