Monster metallers Gwar have announced a special drive-in show in Richmond, VA at The Diamond Drive In for October 10, 2020.
Here’s more info from the band’s intergalactic press agent:
There are exactly ZERO cases of Covid-19 in the freezing cold arctic tundra of Antarctica. This is great news as your Lords and Masters GWAR have been cleared for travel.
Unfortunately, during this time of quarantine, GWAR have also found themselves running precariously low on magic talent-dust (drugs), toilet paper, and money. But don’t worry your hideous little heads, as your Scumdog overlords have a plan to replenish their stash and entertain the faithful legions of Bohabs at the same time!
On Saturday October 10th, GWAR will return to the flaming remnants of Richmond, Virginia for a special Drive In Show. The show is set to take place at The Diamond Drive In located at 3001 N. Arthur Ashe Blvd. This is a drive-in show with social distancing measures in effect. Lots for the show will open up at 8:30 PM local time and the show starts at 9:45 PM local time. Tickets go on sale this Friday September 11th at 10:00 AM EST. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
Blothar the Berserker had this to say:
Denizens of Richmond, Virginia! Americans do everything in their cars, and now that will include watching the greatest rock and roll horror show on this or any other planet! Truly, what is October without a global pandemic and the chance to watch GWAR from the comfort of your shitty old hoopty?! Grab a hotdog, slather it in chili, and shove it down your throat as we bring you the pinnacle of entertainment, the ultimate creature feature, live and writhing…all over your windshield!
In addition, and ICYMI, Gwar will release a special 30th anniversary edition of ‘Scumdogs of the Universe,’ on October 30th. The album is available on CD, double LP, cassette and digital and is available for pre-order HERE. A few limited edition box sets are available exclusively at Gwar.net. Have you seen the new video for “Cool Place to Park“?
In addition, today’s press blast noted:
