40th anniversary tour
« on: January 22, 2023, 06:52:30 PM »
Can we expect a 40th anniversary tour this year? Saw their 20th in 2004 then their 30th in 2013. Will it be this year or next?

One would think this year but given what you state and knowing them it could be ANY year! I know the novelty of an anniversary tour is something in the media and perhaps a bit for fans too but realistically what would be any different than any other Melvins tour? Probably even the same or similar songs too! I'm sure the band themselves don't really care about it in those terms or see it as any more special. Calling it a 40th anniversary tour is just something to sell it.

I would love to see a new south american tour but that seems highly unlikely to happen.

Wow, Never imagined to see this ever again...Wonder if the bands feel the same way about it.

What does 'no spotlights' mean?

I have so many questions.

You can see the Raging Wrath of the easter bunny logo on the poster, presume that's what Mr. Bungle is going to be playing.

Also,

Do you think Mr. Bungle will open for melvins this time?  :P

It means they won't be at the May 13th show.

i assume bungle will do the same thrashtastic set they've been doing since the most recent reunion.  i saw them in feb. 2020, soon before the covid shutdowns, and they were incredibly tight and heavy as hell.  total blast.

Testament just announced a big European tour starting in May about 3-4 days after this Bungle tour ends so Lombardo is going to be a busy boy.

They definitely have something planned for this year. When I hung out with Buzz and Dale in October they made it sound like it would be a tour versus a single show like they did for the 30th anniversary. I suggested they go back to the 1996 "an evening with Melvins" format where they did three sets [experimental (with all of them swapping instruments); slow set; fast set].

my brother in sludge, they did a whole tour for the 30th. Buzz, Dale, Coady and Pinkus.

Where my confusion comes in is, how come 2004 is 20yrs? Isnt it 2003? Obv it makes sense that 2013 is 30th anniversary (83-13')

Probably because of Crover not joining the band until '84. In an interview recently with him the guy said something about the Melvins 40th anniversary this year and he said for the band it is but for him his 40th won;t be until next year.

I would suggest that as the Melvins haven't announced a headline tour yet this year and with the Bungle tour happening in May so unlikely a tour announcement to come before then so they may be holding off until 2024 for Crover's 40th anniversary with the band.
