Speaking on the epic announcement, Megadeth’s leader and frontman, Dave Mustaine says, “Hello me! I’m back again, better than ever and coming to a town near you with Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames. If you want high octane metal madness this is the tour for you.”
Tickets go on sale on February 14th at 10 a.m. via Evenko. VIP packages for all four artists on the tour will also be available.
The tour marks Megadeth’s first North American run since 2017 and follows frontman Dave Mustaine’s diagnosis and recovery from throat cancer. Mustaine said he underwent 51 radiation treatments and nine chemotherapy treatments but has since been ruled “100 per cent” cancer-free.
Last week Lamb of God ended a five-year hiatus with new song, Checkmate. The track will appear on the band’s upcoming self-titled album, which will be released on May 8th.
Commenting on their upcoming co-headline run, Mark Morton, lead guitarist of LAMB OF GOD, adds, “The world has never needed heavy more than it does today and top to bottom, this tour delivers! LAMB OF GOD has toured with and been friends with all of these bands for years, but for all of us to be on the same bill is something extra special. Come early and stay late. This is THE metal tour of the year.”
Trivium’s Matt Heafy adds, “We are happy to be a part of the biggest real metal tour of the year. This tour is the main event and represents heavy metal and the culture that goes with it.“
With In Flames singer, Anders Fridén stating, “We were honoured to be asked to join this package. We were actually supposed to take this summer off, but of course, we couldn’t say no. After playing shows with all of these guys for years, 2020 is going to feel like a kick-ass reunion. See you on the road, Jesterheads!”
