Yes, after 28 years of threatening the possibility, GWAR are headed for Japan. The band will bring their unique brand of sonic terror to the resting place of Godzilla on Thursday, March 6 at Club Quattro in Osaka, Japan, and Friday, March 7th at Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo.
Tickets for the shows will be available during the Creative Man pre-sale January 13th – 17th. There will also be a presale opportunity on Japan’s most important metal radio program “Power Rock Today” hosted by Masa Ito on January 18th. The local Ticketmaster presale will run from January 19th – 24thHERE and the general public on sale begins January 25th. For more Japanese GWAR news, be sure to follow @gwarjapanet on Twitter.
It is also likely that GWAR will use the opportunity to bathe in the Nuclear swill off the coast of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, which melted down back in 2011 in an effort to aid in potential West Coast contamination here in the United States.
Yes, that is completely true I just made that last part up.
