GWAR To Embark On First Tour Since Death Of Lead Singer

One of hard rock's most unique acts, GWAR have announced the continuation of the band following the death of lead singer Oderus Urungus. Former bassist, Michael Bishop has adopted the name Blothar and taken the duties of lead vocals for a 2014 tour entitled “The Eternal Tour”. Joined by Decapitated, American Sharks, and Corrosion Of Conformity; GWAR's will play a one-off at the Riot Fest Chicago on September 12th before the tour. This will mark Blothar's 2nd show as lead singer, following the annual GWAR BBQ which included a viking funeral for the fallen Oderus.

GWAR's eccentric live show that includes monsters, special effects, and lots and lots of blood at small to mid-sized venues is always an in demand ticket. They are generally considered one of the hardest working touring bands in the business, and 2014 is no different with only 8 days off between October 15th and December 13th.

Taking a look at GWAR tickets on the secondary market, demand is clearly there. The average re-sale price for the nearly all General Admission “GWAR Eternal Tour” is $96.61. The general public on sale is this weekend.

Besides Riot Fest, the most expensive date is November 2nd at the Marquee Theater in Arizona. October 16th at New Jersey's Starland Ballroom is the cheapest, averaging $41 on the secondary market. The hometown kickoff at The Norva in Virginia commands an average asking price of $85.
