Sepultura w/ Sacred Reich, Crowbar, Art of Shock
Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m., Wildwood, Iowa City, $25
It’s finally here. This is NOT (we really, really hope this is NOT) a drill. First scheduled for that ill-fated month, March of 2020, and of course postponed, then rescheduled for March of 2021 and yet again postponed, Brazilian metal superstars Sepultura are finally coming through to blast our faces off at Wildwood on Tuesday evening.
Sepultura is widely considered to be one of the most influential heavy metal groups from South America. They emerged onto the scene in the ’80s and are continuing to release new music decades later. The tour is in support of the band’s phenomenal 15th studio album, Quadra, released Feb. 7, 2020.
Sepultura will be supported by American metal groups Sacred Reich (Phoenix), Crowbar (New Orleans) and Art of Shock (Los Angeles). The whole slate is not-to-be-missed, so consider taking Wednesday off to indulge in a mid-week thrash fest that will leave you sore and loving it. Tickets are $25.
