Dope are getting ready to hit the road with (Hed) P.E. for their “Monster High Tour 2017.” Ill Niño will be tagging along for select dates.
The tour will be a follow-up to their early spring 2017 U.S. tour in support of last year’s album release for Blood Money. Dope headlined that tour with Combichrist filling out the bill.
“I’m really excited about this tour” said guitarist Edsel Dope. “We have never done a proper U.S.A. tour with (Hed)P.E. or Ill Niño, so this should be a really cool experience for the fans and for all of us … Me and Jared from Hed Pe are already talking about doing some collaborations before and during the tour.”
“We’ve continued to add to our production to each and every tour. The show is almost out of hand at this point. I am anticipating that this will be the last Dope tour for a little while. Once it is over, I want to focus on finishing up the next Dope album before we hit the road again … I am looking forward to seeing of our fans and friends out there this fall”
Both bands will play full sets each night and Dope will be bringing out their highly interactive production, which will include 100 square feet of LED wall, geysers and much more. Hopefully with more front lighting than the last tour. Hopefully we can get an Arizona date thrown in somewhere.
