Gwar headlined what would sadly be one of their last shows with guitarist Flattus Maximus (aka Cory Smoot) at House of Blues in Chicago on Halloween, as part of their ongoing tour with Ghoul, Every Time I Die and Warbeast. More details on Cory Smoot's tragic passing are at BrooklynVegan.
Pictures from the campy-blood-soaked Gwar set, the Every Time I Die-costumed-as-Chippendales-dancers set, and the mighty Ghoul (no Warbeast) at House of Blues on 10/31 are below, alongside all tour dates which, presumably, are in question.
