Not many television shows can boast that they're still going strong 30 years after they began. But then not many shows have experienced the long, strange trip that is Mystery Science Theater 3000, or MST3k as it came to be known. Started in a local Minneapolis UHF station in 1988, the show, about a man and his robots trapped in space and forced to watch bad movies as an experiment for mad scientists, has been through two cancellations, three hosts, a record-breaking Kickstarter revival, new life on Netflix, and a popular live tour in 2017. Now, show creator Joel Hodgson and current host Jonah Ray are preparing for a massive 30th anniversary live tour of the United States.

This time around, the live show will not just feature Ray and his robot pals Gypsy, Tom Servo, and Crow T. Robot riffing on a movie in front of a live audience with Hodgson acting as Master of Ceremonies. Hodgson will don the signature red jumpsuit of original MST3k host Joel Robinson to make fun of bad movies along with Ray and his stable of bots, his first time riffing in costume since he exited MST3k in 1993.

The movies being riffed for this round of the live show look to be as stinky as any in the show's 11 seasons. Most cities will get a live riff of Canadian low budget horror film The Brain, while select cities will get a second show with a riff on Argentinian sword and sandal clunker Deathstalker.

Tickets for all dates go on sale June 8 and can be found here at AXS. Here is the full list of dates
