About The "Dive Bar Tour"
Taken from an October 24th Press Release:
Acclaimed Canadian rockers Monster Truck have begun releasing the dates of their upcoming Dive Bar Tour. Teased on their social media in early September, Monster Truck are moving forward with a tour they’ve “always wanted to do”.
The Dive Bar Tour is the realization of an internal idea Monster Truck has been conceptualizing for years. “We’ve wanted to show our appreciation for our small town fans, who always have to travel at lengths to see our shows. This combined with wanting to revisit the feeling we had playing wherever would have us when we first started the band.” said founding member Brandon Bliss
The first date being announced is November 24th at The Dominion House in Windsor Ontario (sold out) where “The Truck” as their fans have affectionately labeled them, plan to bring their arena show to smaller, intimate shows reminiscent of the rooms they played when forming in 2009.
Show goers will also have access to limited edition Dive Bar Tour Merch which will celebrate each occasion.
