THE MELVINS To Play 51 U.S. Shows In 51 Days

Posted by on June 6, 2012 at 12:33 pm

The Melvins are looking to make history by setting the Guinness World Record for the first band to play all 50 U.S. states and Washington D.C. in 51 days. That is literally one show every day in a different part of the country. Anyone who has been on tour knows just how easy it is for something to go wrong: van troubles, venue changes and more can pop out of no where literally leaving you stranded on the side of the road, not to mention the physical toll of performing every night. 

The tour, which will feature The Melvins Lite line-up of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Trevor Dunn, also marks the first time in the band's near 30-year history that they will perform in Alaska, New Hampshire, Delaware and Hawaii. The tour will kick off September 5th in Anchorage, Alaska and conclude on October 25th in Honolulu, Hawaii.

We here at Metal Injection will be watching closely with bated breath to see if The Melvins can pull off this little piece of glory. We'll be rooting for them and you can help be part of history too! Just show up, support the band and let them know you are behind them every step of the way.
