Dinosaur Jr. Realign U.S. Tour After Mastodon Cancellation
A day after Dinosaur Jr.‘s tour with Mastodon was canceled due to a “critical situation of a member of the Mastodon family,” J. Mascis and company have rerouted the trek to focus on “special intimate” venues across the U.S.
The two-week trek begins September 10th at Maquoketa, Iowa and heads eastward, concluding September 21st at Washington, D.C.’s Black Cat. The band also booked a gig at Ohio’s Dragon Saddle Day Festival on September 22nd.
Tickets for the realigned tour are on sale now at Dinosaur Jr.’s website.
Following Dinosaur Jr.’s dates, Mascis will embark on a solo tour this November in support of his upcoming solo album Elastic Days, due out November 9th.
On Thursday, Mastodon canceled their tour with Dinosaur Jr. – which was scheduled to begin September 1st – due to the “critical situation”; the prog-metal act have not elaborated on the exact cause of the cancellation.
