Last year saw Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed hit the road on ‘The Metal Tour of the Year,’ which proved to be one of 2021’s most successful tours. Now, the bands have decided to take this tour out for another spin, this time with original openers In Flames in tow instead of Hatebreed.

“The Metal Tour of The Year is exactly what it sounds like – a night of some of the best heavy metal bands in the world – live and loud,” says Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. “Anyone who came to a show last year knows what I mean, only this one’s going be even better. Do not miss out.”

“It was great to get out on the road for an incredible tour last summer with Megadeth, Trivium and Hatebreed so we
figured we’d do it again!” says Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe. “We look forward to hitting new cities with Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames, who we’re happy to have over for leg 2!”

“The Metal Tour Of The Year was one of the strongest, most incredible Metal tours in ages,” says Trivium’s Matt Heafy, “it’s namesake nothing but accurate. How do you follow that up? By doing it again – even bigger, even better, and have it play everywhere it didn’t on the first leg. MTOTYII – let’s do this. “

”We are excited to finally be able to join our dear friends in Megadeth, Lamb of God, and Trivium on this year’s Metal Tour of The Year!” says In Flames’ Anders Fridén. “We can’t wait to be back on the road in America and to reunite with you all. Don’t miss this tour it’s a juggernaut.”

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, January 14th, at 10am local time, with tickets and VIP packages available via the tour’s website.
