Special guests include Trivium and In Flames
Megadeth and Lamb of God have announced the rescheduled run of the Metal Tour of the Year. Joining them, as previously planned, will be special guests Trivium and In Flames, heralding the long-awaited return to the stage for these bands starting on Friday, August 20th in Austin, TX and trekking through 26 additional cities cities before wrapping in Quebec City, QC on Saturday, October 2nd. Full tour itinerary below.
The tour is produced by Live Nation. Tickets and VIP packages for the rescheduled dates will go back on-sale beginning Friday, May 7th at 10 am local at LiveNation.com.
Megadeth, fueled by Dave Mustaine’s triumphant return to the stage following his diagnosis and recovery of throat cancer, will finally embark on their first North American tour since 2017.
“Can you hear that sound of armies on the march – of destruction on the horizon?” says Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. “That’s this tour, coming for you. We cannot wait to return to the stage and I promise you you do NOT want to miss these shows. You’re not going to know what hit you!”
Lamb of God pressed ahead with the release of their crushing self-titled album, Lamb of God, which was one of the best-selling metal albums of 2020. The band now looks to take the show on the road as they return to the stage for the first time since the release of the record.
“It’s been far too long since we got together to do our thing — by ‘we’ I mean bands, road crew, bus drivers, truck drivers, local venue staff, vendors, audience, parking lot attendants, the freaking janitors- the whole damn enchilada. ALL OF US. TOGETHER. Everyone has been waiting, but the time has come to put the puzzle back together— I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been more ready to hit the road with lamb of god. See y’all in a few months with Megadeth, Trivium, & In Flames. Over a year with no live music? These shows are gonna be INSANE…” adds Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe.
