MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn will perform with RUSTY CHAINS at the third annual Chris Cornell tribute show on Friday, July 19 at Verdi Club in San Francisco, California. The event falls on Robb's 52nd birthday, so he is inviting MACHINE HEAD fans to "come down and have a raucous good time."
In addition to popular TEMPLE OF THE DOG and AUDIOSLAVE songs, RUSTY CHAINS will perform the SOUNDGARDEN classic "Badmotorfinger" in its entirety.
MACHINE HEAD announced in March that it will celebrate the 25th anniversary of "Burn My Eyes" with a special run of shows. The dates will see drummer Chris Kontos and guitarist Logan Mader join the band onstage again to play "Burn My Eyes" in full.
The first leg of MACHINE HEAD's 25th-anniversary tour for "Burn My Eyes" will kick off in Germany on October 5 in Freiburg, and continue across Europe, wrapping in Dublin, Ireland on November 8. The U.S. leg will take place in November and December.
Kontos left MACHINE HEAD before the release of the band's second album, 1997's "The More Things Change", and was replaced by Dave McClain.
Mader contributed to two MACHINE HEAD albums, the aforementioned "Burn My Eyes" and "The More Things Change", before exiting the group and being replaced by Ahrue Luster and, later on, Phil Demmel.
McClain and Demmel both left MACHINE HEAD last fall.
