As their latest opus 'Bloodstones & Diamonds' is unleashed on the masses, Machine Head have announced they will be embarking on a North American tour in January. Check out the dates and cities below.

"We’re doing ‘An Evening With’ Machine Head, meaning: it’ll just be us, folks,” says frontman Robb Flynn. “We are really excited about the idea, playing longer sets, throwing in some deep cuts, and just having our own world. Promoters in the U.S seem really stoked about it, some have said it feels like ‘an event’.”

Playing festivals is almost mandatory when touring these days, but Machine Head have vowed not to play any during this touring cycle, and they will only do headlining shows.

"We’re not trying to have a good time with a bunch of people who don’t know who we are," Flynn explains. "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 F--king Undesirables!"

Flynn continues, "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."

The tour kicks off Jan. 16 in Phoenix, Ariz. and V.I.P. ticket packages are now on sale at this location. Packages include a meet and greet and photo with the band, poster, flag, laminate, and koozie. In addition, those that purchase the VIP experience will be entered in a drawing to win an autographed 'Bloodstone & Diamonds' electric guitar.
