Megadeth and Lamb of God Announce Rescheduled North American Tour Dates

Like every other band in the world, thrash titans Megadeth were forced to reschedule their 2020 tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and In Flames last year. Now, the band have revealed the new dates for later this year.

“Can you hear that sound of armies on the march — of destruction on the horizon?” said Dave Mustaine in a statement. “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!”

“It’s been far too long since we got together to do our thing,” says Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe. “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 and In Flames. Over a year with no live music? These shows are gonna be INSANE…”
