BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Music fans in Baton Rouge have a new item to add to a Christmas wish list. The Varsity Theatre announced this morning that Deftones have signed on to perform at the venue on March 25, 2013.
The Grammy award-winning alternative metal band just released its seventh album on November 12, 2012. Reviews of “Koi No Yokan” have been positive, continuing the group’s enduring legacy in a genre that typically gains little attention from the mainstream.
The Deftones released its debut album “Adrenaline” in 1995, which was certified platinum in 2008. Pressing on over the years, the group has never failed to pack a venue, but rarely have they made a stop in Baton Rouge. Rather, a traditional Deftones tour includes New Orleans as its Louisiana stop, with two consecutive dates due to high demand.
No doubt this show will sell out fast.
Tickets are $46 in advance and go on sale Friday, Dec. 21 at 11:00 a.m. They can be purchased at The Chimes Restaurant on Highland Road, or click here to puchase online .
