VOLBEAT plays first show with ex-SLAYER drummer JON DETTE


VOLBEAT played its first show with former SLAYER and TESTAMENT drummer Jon Dette last weekend (Saturday, January 29) at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon. Dette is filling in for VOLBEAT‘s regular drummer, Jon Larsen, who tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, earlier in the week.

Fan-filmed video of the Portland concert can be seen below.

VOLBEAT canceled its show Friday (January 29) at Ford Idaho Center Arena in Nampa, Idaho as a result of Larsen‘s diagnosis.

VOLBEAT‘s co-headlining U.S. tour with GHOST will conclude on March 3 in Anaheim, California.

VOLBEAT‘s “Shotgun Blues” single, which is taken from the band’s latest album, “Servant Of The Mind”, recently topped both the Billboard Mainstream Rock and Mediabase Active Rock charts, the Danish/American group’s tenth top-charter, and cemented VOLBEAT‘s record for having the most No. 1 singles on the Mainstream Rock chart by an artist based outside of North America.
