Godsmack aren’t going to hit the road at all this year .
They were going to tour with The Pretty Reckless from July through September and recently looked at shifting the entire trek to the fall. But Sully Erna tells Eddie Trunk, “We decided, ‘You know what? Let’s not try to jam ourselves into the fall.’ We were at the tail end of this record [2018’s When Legends Arise] anyway, so this gives us time to go work on a new album and also be first next year to be able to pick the venues we wanna go to, the tour buses that we want, the days that we wanna be at those venues, the markets we wanna be in, and let’s just book out ahead of time and be first next year instead of trying to find our little piece of real estate this fall when every other band is probably gonna try to go out and tour.”
Erna thinks that it will be a while before people are comfortable in arenas. “With people losing houses and their jobs and stuff like that, I think when it comes back, they’re gonna be, like, ‘All right. I’m glad it’s over. Let’s get back to work. But I probably should replenish my savings account before I start buying concert tickets.'”
