The kings of "extra cheesy" metal covers, MAC SABBATH, are back this September to slay you with their fast food-themed renditions of Black Sabbath anthems. Dubbed the "Clown Power Tour" 2016, MAC SABBATH will be joined by equally mesmerizing one-man, painted Elvis Presley project, Clownvis Presley, originally discovered on Season 5 of America's Got Talent.
Blissfully unaware of his own tour package, Ronald Osbourne unnervingly offered, "The clown Elvis bloke? Yes I know him, we clown folk stick together, he's a magical mate with a show like nothing I've....What the bloody hell? On our tour??? You got to be kidding me! Who does he think he is! But you realize I'm the clown ozzzzzzz--"
"... Sorry, I think what Ronald is trying to say here is that MAC SABBATH will be joining forces with Clownvis Presley for a magical fun-tastic experience this summer on the Clown Power Tour 2016," interjected manager Mike Odd, laughing nervously as he tightened Osbourne's straightjacket.
The "Clown Power Tour" 2016 begins on August 25th in Las Vegas, NV and will run for about a month, ending in Tucson, AZ on September 17th. The band will perform a one-off show in Los Angeles on August 5th. See below for a full listing of MAC SABBATH tour dates.

Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a MAC SABBATH show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun - MAC SABBATH puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show - complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises... basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams.
"... one of the most interesting bands to come around in a long, long time. They have Dead Kennedys' outrageous sense of humor mixed with total irreverence and ornate style on top of a solid, engaging performance (even if the crowd is reluctant to respond). So while this whole thing was probably thought up after eating too many pot brownies, it is one of the most brilliant ideas in a long time."

"This is not a drill. Be it exchanging Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" for a "Pair-a-buns" or "Iron Man" for a "Frying Pan," these food-focused musical dweebs are cooking up something hot 'n' ready just for you." - Alicia Lutes, MTV.com
"The most impressive-and terrifying-thing about Mac Sabbath is that they're actually really good. Ronald channels his inner Ozzy onstage, from the manic jumping to the frantic hand waving..." - Bryan Rolli, Paste Magazine
"Even if the songs are dripping with onions and extra cheese, Mac Sabbath put on one righteous stage show, complete with smoke machines, gritty power chords, and endless head-banging." - Chris Coplan, ConsequenceofSound.net
Named by Buzzfeed as one of the "13 Metal Bands You Didn't Know How to React To"
