Machine Head Win Law Suit

Posted on February 12, 2008

Ahhh, the wacky world of touring, where we all know that shows and situations can change at the drop of a hat. What are we referring to this time? Machine Head and their upcoming U.S. headline tour in support of their latest release, Supercharger - the Supercharging America tour. So what's the deal? This tour, originally slated to start on January 10th in Vancouver, will now be starting on January 20th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Why? As frontman Robert Flynn tells, "I severely sprained my wrist snowboarding the other day". Accordingly, playing guitar for the next couple weeks is out of the question...this is touring, live shows, the real deal - all members must be pumping on full cylinders...not like studio work when back in 1989 Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg sprained both his wrists. Guitarist Steve Vai handled all the axe duties for the Slip Of The Tongue release and the band never missed a beat. Alas, we digress... NOTE - the original first eight dates of the tour WILL BE rescheduled and will take place on the back end of the tour, sometime in mid-February. NOTE II - Darwin's Waiting Room and 3rd Strike will be the supporting acts (with the latter being the opener). NOTE III - let's send a 'cheers' out to Machine Head, for they just won an ongoing 2 year court case wherein a commercial sound design company based in Venice, California (also named Machine Head) was trying to get our Machine Head to change their name. Congrats. Long live Machine Head...
