Since the announcement of Australia’s very first Download festival, everyone has been speculating which bands would hit up our very own state with sideshows. I for one had one on the wish list, Mastodon and Gojira. Low and behold the metal gods have praised us with that exact combo!
Mastodon and Gojira are without a doubt two of the biggest metal acts on Downloads line up. The two bands co-headlined a sideshow in Melbourne as part of the Soundwave tour back in 2012, putting on an epic show at the Billboard in Melbourne’s city centre.
Mastodon are set to play two very special Download Festival sideshows at The Big Top in Sydney on March 26, and our own Eaton’s Hill Hotel in Brisbane on March 28, supported by French metal masters Gojira.
There’s no doubt these tickets will fly out the door and I can assure you from experience that this combo is something you won’t want to miss.
Mastodon are currently preparing to hit the road in support of their critically acclaimed and Grammy nominated album ‘Emperor of Sand’ which also topped many listeners best albums of 2017.
