Gwar to tour without Dave Brockie

Rockers Gwar are set to embark on their first tour without late frontman Dave Brockie. The star, whose stage name was Oderus Urungus, died of a heroin overdose in March (14), and the band is now preparing to get back on the road for the first time since his death.
Gwar will kick off a huge North American trek in October (14) and play more than 50 dates, taking in cities such as Las Vegas, Seattle in Washington, and New York.
A statement posted on the group’s website reads, “This Fall GWAR sets out on the most trying quest of our career. We shall scour our leader’s favorite stomping ground, North America, leaving no city unsearched, no venue unraised, and no sheep unmolested. GWAR will venture to the depths of Hell or to the very end of Time itself, and though I fear what we may encounter out there, I know that we can never return home until we have the answer we seek: ‘Where is Oderus Urungus?'”
The shows kick off in Norfolk, Virginia on 15 October (14).
