Gwar tickets

Gwar tickets - Gwar tour dates

Gwar Schedule

It has been over a quarter of a century since the two-time Grammy Award-nominated heavy metal band Gwar ignited an explosion of guts, blood and earsplitting steel. Throughout the decades, they have unveiled themselves not only as the undeniable rulers of shock rock, but also as a cultural icon that has impacted lives and even trashed some clothing of tons of people.

Gwar is consistently imitated but never tamed. Gwar has set the bar high when it comes to their musical massacres that are unrivaled in the history of rock and roll.

Gwar has scheduled a number of tour stops in the upcoming weeks - always persistent in their mission to bring the world to its knees. Their tour includes the: Irving Plaza in New York; Toads Place in New Haven, Connecticut; and The National Richmond in Richmond, Virginia.

Don't miss out on your chance to score Gwar tickets. Check out StubHub today!


Gwar Background

Established at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Gwar originated as a marketing strategy experiment developed by various art students, dancers and musicians. It started with a punk band called, Death Piggy, which put on mini plays and used obscene props to complement their off-the-wall music.

Band members came up with the idea to have Death Piggy open for themselves as a different, fictitious group in disguise, Gwaaarrrgghhlllgh. Soon they realized their fictitious band was becoming the center of attention with people coming to see Gwaaarrrgghhlllgh and exiting after their set. After multiple enhancements, including truncating the band's name, Death Piggy was phased out, making room for Gwar.

The group billed themselves as "all-powerful interplanetary warriors, descended from aliens stranded in Antarctica and initially created from the lowest filth in the universe, who came to Earth to sexually enslave and/or slaughter the human race."

All members of Gwar take stage names that mirror their dark and twisted sense of humor. The main cast of characters is comprised of: Oderus Urungus (vocals); Flattus Maximus (guitar); Balsac the Jaws of Death (guitar); Beefcake the Mighty (bass); and Jizmak the Gusher (drums). Ancillary characters include: Slymenstra Hymen; the Sexecutioner; Sleazy P. Martini; and Techno-Destructo.

It didn't take long for the band to shape their own authentic identity. Their off-the-wall costumes fashioned out of papier-mache and latex and perverse stage antics put them on the map. Fans never knew what to expect from live shows - anything from fake pagan ceremonies to corpses gushing bodily fluids into the crowd.

As to be expected, the law didn't have a love affair with Gwar or its fans. For instance, in Charlotte, North Carolina, Urungus was slapped with an obscenity charge; and law enforcement in Athens, Georgia, put the brakes on a concert in 1993. But with the assistance of the ACLU, Gwar filed a lawsuit and settled out of court. They ended up winning and gave the settlement money to charity.

But Gwar is most celebrated for their visual stage persona. The group even garnered a Grammy nod in 1993 for Phallus in Wonderland.

Today, Gwar continues to tour, taking their brand of mutated metal to stages all over the planet!


Gwar Hit Albums

Gwar's early album, Scumdogs of the Universe (1990) is deemed as one of the band's most amusing works. Albums that followed, included This Toliet Earth (1993) and We Kill Everything (1999). The band made a comeback in 2004 on a new label and with a new album, War Party. Mined from a performance in Pittsburgh, Live from Mt. Fuji arrived the following year. And Gwar stepped into the studio for Beyond Hell in 2006. This album served as a concert record covering Gwar's trek into hell.

After celebrating their 25th anniversary, Gwar released Lust in Space in 2009. This album took the same theoretical approach as the Beyond Hell album - only this time Gwar takes on their nemesis Cardinal Sin in space.


Gwar Trivia

In case you're wondering, Gwar is an abridged version of Gwaaarrrgghhlllgh - although there are several rumors about the name's origin that have circulated over the years. The most popular one is that the band's name is actually an acronym for "God what an awful racket."


Gwar Concert Experience

Best known for the horror flick-inspired costumes, vulgar lyrics and animated and largely graphic live stage performances, a Gwar concert is anything but predictable and boring.

Gwar promises an unforgettable experience - delivering a show so over-the-top, controversial, fun and offensive, that you will be talking about it with your friends long after it's over. From comical re-enactments of political and moral topics that are normally off-limits to simulated decapitation, you just never know what you're going to see at a Gwar live performance.
