Hellyeah Book 2017 North American Tour Ahead of Summer Festival Stops
Hellyeah are going on tour? Oh, hell yeah! The band already had a number of North American festival dates booked out this summer and they've added to their touring schedule, bringing a few different guests with them and providing support at other special concerts.
The band, featuring Pantera's Vinnie Paul and Mudvayne's Chad Gray, has been spreading their latest album, Unden!able, all over the world, seemingly always on the road in one capacity or another. There's no stopping this well-oiled machine as they launch another round of gigs from Odessa, Texas on May 31. After three shows, 10 Years and Black Map will drop off as Sons of Texas and Righteous Vendetta assume the support slots starting June 5.
Along the way, they'll be making a special appearance opening for Babymetal on June 16 and another one-off event with Rammstein on June 29, which also marks the conclusion of the tour. With two weeks off, Hellyeah will start making the festival rounds starting on July 14 at Rock USA in Oshkosh, Wis. A list of stops can be seen below and please check listings carefully.
Unden!able is the fifth album from Hellyeah and carries a special sentiment as it featured recorded guitar tracks from the late Dimebag Darrell. Prior to his death, he had recorded an unreleased version of the Phil Collins song "I Don't Care Anymore" with Damageplan. When Hellyeah decided to cover the hit, they naturally used some of Dime's guitar parts.
