Teaming up for what promises to be an unforgettable jaunt of epic proportions, French heavy metal luminaries Gojira will join forces with iconic heavy rock band Mastodon for a massive co-headline tour across North America in 2023. The Mega-Monsters Tour finds these two juggernauts taking over arenas and amphitheaters throughout the spring and summer, alternating closing sets each night.
The tour kicks off at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, OR on April 18 and includes stops at legendary venues such as the Forum in Los Angeles, CA on April 21. The first leg concludes at Santander Arena in Reading, PA on May 11 and resumes with a second leg that runs August 9 through September 2.
Special guest Lorna Shore serves as direct support on all dates. Fan presales for tickets began January 18 and included both Mastodon and Gojira artist presales alongside Blabbermouth, Spotify and local promoter/venue/ radio presales. General on-sale tickets launched on January 20 with VIP ticket packages available at here or here.
Mastodon hit the road in support of their critically acclaimed ninth studio album, Hushed And Grim. Meanwhile, Gojira are out supporting their seventh full-length album, Fortitude, which garnered a Grammy® Award nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” for “Amazonia.” These two titans previously canvased North America together in 2014, and this reunion represents yet another major milestone in their respective careers.
