Jon-Mikl Thor to tour US with documentary ‘I Am Thor’ in November

Jon Mikl Thor

While the name Thor has, in recent years, become most closely associated with the Marvel superhero played by Chris Hemsworth over multiple films in the past five years, fans of metal music also associate the name with Canadian heavy metal singer Jon-Mikl Thor, who was the frontman for the band Thor throughout the 70s and 80s. Thor’s exploits, which also include bodybuilding and acting, were recently chronicled in documentarian Ryan Wise’s new film I AM THOR.

Now, ahead of the film’s theatrical and VOD release, Thor will now be attending advance screenings of the documentary, and will perform after every screening. Thor’s attendance at screenings will begin on November 10th at Seattle’s El Corazon, before moving to Portland’s Dante’s on November 11th and Los Angeles’ Whiskey A Go-Go on November 12th. He will also attend and play at screenings in Chicago’s Reggie’s Rock Club on November 16th, Detroit’s Small’s Bar on November 18th, Philadelphia’s PhillyMOCA on November 20th, and Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar on November 22nd. Each venue will sell their own tickets to the event.

Sound on Sight editor Ricky attended the film’s screening at the 2015 Fantasia Film Festival, where Thor was also present, and had this to say.

I’ve never witnessed a screening quite as remarkable as I Am Thor! The legend himself graced the Fantasia Film Festival with his presence in what we assumed would be a straightforward Q&A session. Little did we know that Jon Miki would walk out dressed in his alter ego’s attire and rock out a 30-minute concert in the Concordia Hall theatre proceeding the film – and it was pretty fu*cken awesome!

The film will be released theatrically and on VOD on November 20th. A trailer for the documentary can be seen below.
