Deftones’ Chino Moreno Is Going To Play A Show Inside A Volcano
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has decided to play a show inside a volcano in a few days. That’s actually what he’s going to do. When Deftones play Icelandic music festival Secret Solstice, Moreno will perform a solo sideshow at the country’s Thrihnuagigur volcano. We’re not kidding.
Twenty audience members will fly into Iceland to see the show, at which point they will be lowered into the ground. 400 feet later, they’ll be treated to an acoustic performance by Mr Moreno himself, who will be supported by Iceland native Snorri Helgason. Having said that, the volcano hasn’t erupted for 4000 years. That’s an important fact that should be taken into consoling consideration.
If you’re not one of the fortunate twenty that get to catch Moreno in this particular rupture in the Earth’s crust, you can still check them out when they venture to Australia for a national tour this November. They’ll be hitting our shores for five shows with Aussie rockers Karnivool and metallers Voyager. Even though it sounds kind of exciting, we here at BLUNT are definitely prepared to wait to hear tracks from Deftones’ latest studio album Gore in a non-volcanic venue.
