Mon, Jun 4th 2018 03:50 pm
October/November tour dates announced
Two new movies, all new riffs, plus Joel Hodgson, Jonah Ray, The Bots & more
After an incredible tour in 2017, "Mystery Science Theater 3000" announces the "MST3K Live 30th Anniversary Tour," featuring, for the first time in 25 years, original host and "MST3K" creator Joel Hodgson back in the red jumpsuit as Joel Robinson.
Alongside new "MST3K" host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray), Joel, Jonah and the Bots will bring new movies and all new riffs and sketches live to the stage across U.S. cities this fall. The "MST3K Live 30th Anniversary Tour" kicks off Oct. 9 in Portland, Maine, and hits 29 cities to perform 42 shows across the U.S.
Tickets for all dates go on sale Friday, June 8, via AXS.com and local venue box offices.
Of the upcoming tour, Hodgson said, "The craziest and most exciting thing for me is that I am putting on my old jumpsuit and will be riffing live, shoulder to shoulder, with Jonah, Crow and Tom Servo for two incredibly strange feature films. I'm going to have to go into training to get caught up to the skill level of Jonah and this new cast. If you saw last year's tour, you have some idea just how talented these young movie riffers are."
The "Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live 30th Anniversary Tour" consists of two separate, completely unique shows, each with its own admission, so fans who want to see both shows will need to purchase two tickets, one for each show. Each event will include all the things expected from an "MST3K" experience: a cheesy B-movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches, plus - for the first time - Joel and Jonah riffing together side-by-side. Both shows feature movies never before seen on the "MST3K" series. Show No. 1 is "The Brain," a Canadian science fiction suburban nightmare. Show No. 2 is "Deathstalker," a fun, sword and sandal epic with a horrible monster.
Following its record-breaking #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter campaign, the inaugural new season of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" launched on April 14, 2017, exclusively on Netflix and earned a critics' rating of "100% Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes.
Tickets for "Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live 30th Anniversary Tour" will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. local time via AXS.com and the venue box office. Note: Where there are multiple performances in a single market, each event is ticketed separately.
