That two bands as stylistically different as System Of A Down and Gogol Bordello would tour together might seem a bit silly and ridiculous at first, but it makes complete sense.
Sure, System Of A Down play political nu-metal, while Gogol Bordello play gypsy punk influenced by a myriad of other world musics. But both bands are known for their theatrical, manic stage shows, where their energy's all over the place.
So if you think about it, it only makes sense that the two bands are going out on the road together for some western dates in May.
The gigs take place May 10 to 22, and happen just before System Of A Down head to Europe for some festival dates in June.
Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster and Live Nation on Friday or Saturday, depending on which show you want to attend. More information about onsale dates for each show is available on System Of A Down's website.
System Of A Down announced they were reuniting back in November. The band — who'd been on hiatus since 2006 — had been rumoured to be getting back together since early 2010.
