As most are well aware of, there are tours… and then there are TOURS!!! Today’s announcement undoubtedly qualifies for the latter designation, as those grimiest of scumdogs, GWAR, brings news of an upcoming quest.

The trek dubbed the “Use Your Collusion Tour 2019” will see GWAR undertake an extensive North American road trip, running from the middle of September up into early November. Joining the musically misbehaving miscreants will be none other than reactivated old-school socio-political malcontents SACRED REICH, along with TOXIC HOLOCAUST and AGAINST THE GRAIN.

A complete list of dates for the tour, which kicks off September 12th in Norfolk, VA, and will run through November 5th in Indianapolis, IN, can be found below. Watch a promotional video for the tour featuring guitarist Pustulus Maximus included here; tickets and VIP Packages are on sale now.



In GWAR related news, the band will soon unveil a monument to the band’s co-founder and longtime leader, Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus), in Richmond, Virginia’s famed Hollywood Cemetery. The memorial event will occur at 2:00 P.M. EST on Friday, August 30th, 2019. Members of the public are invited to attend and come out to GWARbar in RVA the following day, Saturday, August 31st, for a party. RAWG, the greatest GWAR tribute band of all-time, will perform that day.

Friday, August 30th will have been Dave Brockie‘s 56th birthday and the dedication of this monument to him will provide a place for Brockie’s friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this deeply talented human being. Not just him, of course, but also to Dave’s infamous creation – Oderus Urungus – who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history.

The physical addresses of both locations hosting these events are:

Friday, August 30th:
Hollywood Cemetery
412 S. Cherry Street
Richmond, Virginia

Saturday, August 31st:
217 W. Clay Street
Richmond, Virginia
