With special guests Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles
Grammy-nominated hard rock band Mastodon, riding high on the success of their latest album Emperor of Sand, is set to perform live at the Reno Ballroom on Oct. 27. Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles are special guests.
Since forming in 2000, Mastodon have certainly made the most of their time. Most recently, their seventh offering “Once More ‘Round the Sun” bowed at #6 on the Billboard Top 200, marking their highest chart entry to date and second consecutive Top 10 debut following 2011’s “The Hunter.” Casting a shadow over pop culture, they received “Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance” Grammy Award nominations in 2007, 2014 and again in 2015. Their music blasted through the Academy Award-winning comedy “The Big Short,” animated blockbuster “Monsters University,” and sci-fi western “Jonah Hex” starring Josh Brolin-for which the group composed the score. After contributing “White Walker” to HBO’s “Catch the Throne Vol. 2” mixtape, Dailor, Hinds and Kelliher appeared as “Wildings” in an episode of “Game of Thrones” season 5.
Not only did they earn the appreciation of Time, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Billboard and more, they also turned many peers into fans, including Metallica, Pearl Jam, Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, CeeLo Green and Feist, to name a few. Performing everywhere from Coachella and Bonnaroo to Download and Sonisphere and nearly every major festival, they’ve headlined legendary venues such as Red Rocks and sod out shows around the globe.
Don't miss this concert! Tickets go on sale Saturday, August 26, for $39.50 and $49.50.
