Helmet in NYC in 2012 (more by Chris LaPutt)

After Helmet get off tour with Filter and Local H, they'll be stopping in Chicago to play a show at Reggies on August 16 before they set out for a European tour. Support for the show has yet to be announced, but they'll be playing their classic album Betty in its entirety. This is a rare opportunity to catch the band in so intimate a setting, and should be an exciting break from the House Of Blues-heavy shows they'll be playing on tour. Tickets for this thing are on sale now.

Local H also play 2 Chicago shows after their tour with Helmet.

Below you can see their complete list of Helmet's European tour dates. You can see the dates for the Filter/Local H tour here.
