Touring in support of their Platinum album White Pony, Maverick Recording artist Deftones are hitting the road this summer for an eight-week U.S. tour co-headlining with Godsmack.
The tour kicks off in mid-July up in the Pacific Northwest, and will have Deftones playing some forty-two dates at outdoor amphitheatres across America before they wrap up just after Labor Day.
Dubbed one of the hardest-touring bands in the music business, Deftones have already logged some 150 dates since last summer’s release of the album.
Since its release last year, White Pony won Deftones their first Grammy Award, naming the track “Elite” as Best Metal Performance. White Pony was named Best Album of the Year at the 2000 Kerrang! Awards; the California Music Awards named it Outstanding Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album of the Year, and at the ESPN Sports Awards, Deftones were named the BMX Music Act of the Year. In addition, “White Pony” was on numerous journalists’ Best of 2000 year-end lists, and Deftones were given the Key to the City in their hometown of Sacramento.
