If you're like me and old enough to have lived in an era where the residents of McDonaldland were present not only in select McDonald's restaurants, but also on television regularly - you probably have memories of them that are either fond, creepy or both. I fall into the latter category of loving the characters, yet finding them totally bizarre and somewhat wrong. Is it possible that Mayor McCheese strapped on a guitar to become SLAYER McCHEESE - guitarist for a BLACK SABBATH cover band? What if Ronald McDonald became Ronald Osbourne and shifted the Sabbath lyrics to be fast food-themed? Well, my friends, it happened - and MAC SABBATH has been popping up in my social feeds frequently over the past few years, though I never expected to receive a press release noting that they're going on tour. Check out the dates and setlist below!
