Gaerea announce Chicago secret screening event ahead of tour

Author Flavia Andrade - 29.8.2023

Cathartic post black metal masters Gaerea have announced a secret screening to kick off their upcoming North American tour. The event will take place on September 28, at the original Kuma’s Corner in Chicago, IL, and is free to attend. It will start at 7:30 PM and the band will be present for a meet and greet with fans who dare to enter the vortex. Plus, fans can enter a raffle in which one lucky winner will be given a pair of tickets to see the band’s performance at Metro on September 30.

The band stated:

This is the death of “Mirage” and the moment we start to let go of our world just so another one can be born. This unique event will showcase everything Gaerea has ever stood for. Get ready to witness something truly special, crafted specially to each and everyone of you who wishes to join us for an evening we shall never forget.

In addition, Kuma’s has collaborated with Gaerea for a signature burger, which is inspired by the Francesinha sandwich, a comforting dish that is native to the band’s hometown of Porto (PT). The Gaerea burger is modeled after Kuma’s famous Slayer burger with a Portuguese twist. The sandwich has a bed of fresh house-cut fries, texas toast, an angus beef patty, sausage, uncured ham, shredded monterrey jack cheese, and a fried egg, all smothered in a decadent Francesinha sauce.

Gaerea will be kicking off its North American tour with Wolves in the Throne Room, Blackbraid, and Hoaxed on September 29, in St. Louis, MO, which will then conclude on October 24 in Denver, CO. Tickets are now available.
