Children of Bodom announce 2017 North American 20 Years Down & Dirty Tour

Finnish extreme metal band Children of Bodom has announced the 20 Years Down & Dirty Tour commemorating the anniversary of Something Wild. After touring Europe, the band was able to extend the trek into North America that will take them across 24 cities including an appearance at Ozzfest on November 4. The tour kicks off in Dallas, Texas on Oct. 31 at the Gas Monkey Live! venue, founded by Discovery’s "Fast ‘N Loud" star Richard Rawlings, and concludes on Dec. 1 in Montréal, Québec at the Corona Theatre. AXS has tickets to select dates here.

Children of Bodom will play songs from their first three albums Something Wild, Hatebreeder and Follow the Reaper and won’t play any music beyond 2003’s Hate Crew and Deathroll. The band will play tracks that they haven’t done in 15 years and will also bring out songs that are rarities, a once in a lifetime experience for fans of the group.

Out on the road, Carach Angren, Lost Society and Uncured will join Children of Bodom for the 2017 tour. Carach Angren recently released their fifth album Dance and Laugh Amongst the Rotten on June 16 via Season of Mist, a leading French independent label for metal music.

Tickets are on sale July 14.
