Gig Guide: UK tour date round up, December 29 edition

Welcome to the Gig Guide where we round up some of the recently announced tour dates for across the UK and Ireland!

Jinjer and Obituary

Jinjer and Obituary will be joining Sepultura on their farewell tour in the UK and Europe! They will also be joined by Jesus Piece!

Jinjer said: “Touring together with this legendary band on their farewell run is for us, as longtime fans and now friends, the perfect way to celebrate their undeniable influence on us as a band, their contribution to metal music as a whole and to their 40 year long legacy. Let’s tear up the roots and plant some new ones together next fall!”  

Obituary’s The Tardy Brothers said: “When we got the word that Sepultura asked for Obituary to be on the tour we jumped at the opportunity and are super excited to have the chance to be on the road together again. The history between these two bands goes back 35 years and we have always remained good friends and brothers in Metal. It has been 3 decades since we toured together so we are really looking forward to this and we know the fans are just as excited! Lifetime friendship and now we get to add to the memories and we are so proud and honored to be a part of their European Farewell Tour.

” A message for our Brazilian Brothers:

“* Vocês sempre tiveram nosso apoio, amor e respeito e estamos honrados em nos juntar a vocês nessa celebração de uma incrível carreira de 40 anos. Obrigado por esta oportunidade e vamos arregaçar mais uma vez juntos na Europa!!”
