Get ready to see your favorite metal heads hit the world stage next year, as Megadeth leading man Dave Mustaine has revealed some details in regards to their upcoming tour. The band has been racking up miles on their tour bus as they’ve recently been on the road promoting their last album Dystopia, which was released earlier this year and the band wants to keep their playing streak going. Except next year, you can expect some crazy surprise guest artists including Body Count, and four more undisclosed featured guests.
While discussing the possible supporting acts, Mustaine added, “We’ve been looking at a lot of interesting acts, but for me I don’t always try and pick out the flavor of the month – I have loyalty to my friends. I always thoughts that Body Count, while if not for everybody, I thought it was great. It’s not your normal metal band, it’s cool to see somebody crossing over from the hip-hop world into the metal world. I think it’s great to be open-minded about different people from different backgrounds.”
Famous hip hop and rap artist Ice-T is one of the talented artists who has made the successful transition to metal music. He is currently a member of Body Count, where they’ve dropped five albums including Manslaughter which was released most recently in 2014. In the recent past, they signed a new deal with Century Media Records and have already put in hours at the studio producing a new album. Be on the lookout for the upcoming LP, along with more epict details about the upcoming Megadeth world tour.
