System Of A Down have revealed two additional performances apart from the Almost Acoustic Christmas announced last week. The band will be performing in April at Russia’s Olympinksy Arena as well as Rock In Rio next September.
4/25 Moscow, RUS – Olympinsky
9/24 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The day the band’s performance in Russia was announced, drummer John Dolmayan took to Twitter to deliver a seemingly insignificant tweet.
Yes, it's true— John Dolmayan/SOAD (@JohnDolmayan) November 17, 2014
That short and simple post speaks volumes if you ask me because in the past, the drummer has been fairly outspoken in the past about reuniting but then these dates are announced and he says next to nothing? I think it’s one of those things bands do when something big is coming and they all take a vow of silence until there’s enough suspense. Then when the fans can’t take it anymore they announce something bigger than everyone though.
My guess is that these select shows will be followed by a tour and then a studio album.
