Megadeth have announced tour dates in February and March 2016 with support from Suicidal Tendencies, Children of Bodom and Havok. The dates will span the United States and Canada, beginning February 20 and ending March 24.
According to Loudwire, lead vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine has been excited about this tour’s lineup. Last month, while Megadeth were still trying to get confirmation of the lineup, Mustaine said that if it works out, it would be “a cool, cool lineup.”
The tour is in support of Megadeth’s forthcoming album, Dystopia, which will be released January 22, 2016. In addition to the newly-announced tour dates, Megadeth will be performing at Monster Energy’s Fort Rock 2016 on April 30 in Fort Myers, Florida. Following that, they will play at Monster Energy’s Welcome to Rockville 2016 on May 1 in Jacksonville, Florida.
The band gained a new guitarist earlier this year, Angra’s Kiko Loureiro, to replace previous guitarist Chris Broderick after he left Megadeth due to ‘artistic and musical differences.’
If you can’t make it to see Megadeth live on tour in 2016, you could always check out the streaming video of their live performance of the entire Countdown to Extinction album on the online video streaming service Qello.
Though the dates and the cities have been announced for the upcoming tour, the venues are still to be determined. It has been announced that the band’s shows in Hawaii will not include any supporting acts. To see the full list of Megadeth tour dates and to find tickets, scroll down.
