Machine Head have announced a huge European Tour which includes seven UK dates. For those who follow the band you would have noticed they've been particularly busy ripping venues apart on their "An Evening With Machine Head" tour which has the band playing extended live sets, without any support acts. Chatting about the format, front man Robb Flynn stated, "We are really excited about playing longer sets, throwing in some deep cuts, and just having it be our own world.... We did this in the US and eastern Europe recently and it’s worked amazingly well. Fans seem to really love the 'Evening With…' format for a band like us who has a long-standing and diverse catalogue."

Yep, that's 28 shows! Flynn added further, "We’re not trying to have a good time with a bunch of people who don’t know who we are. If MACHINE HEAD throws a party, big or small, we don’t want a bunch of ‘strangers’ there. This is about us and you guys, the die-hards, the Head Cases, The Fucking Undesirables! We don’t care about the others out there. We’re here and we’re not going anywhere.
If those people want to be a part of this, they know where to find us. So for the time being, and maybe ‘forever’, we’re done reaching out for them."

Tickets for all of these dates go on sale this Friday. You'll need to be quick.
