System of a Down and Deftones announce special performance at Golden Gate Park

System of a Down and Deftones have shared that they’re linking up to play a one-of-a-kind performance by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco later this year.

The just-announced concert will take place on Aug. 17 and will feature the two alt-metal juggernauts co-headlining what’s being billed as “a standalone event at the historic Golden Gate Park.” This could open things up, as in the past, to potential onstage collabs from the longtime friends.

Better yet, the outdoor show will also feature support from psych-styled prog-venturists the Mars Volta, Stockholm punks Viagra Boys, and Deftones-approved “death-pop” duo VOWWS.

If you’re thinking of pulling up to the park, tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (April 12) at 10 a.m. PT. You can check out a quick commercial for the concert down below.

It’s a SOAD spring, too, with the band set to perform this month at the second annual Sick New World festival in Las Vegas, while vocalist Serj Tankian is scheduled to release his Down With the System memoir May 14.
