Rumor: Megadeth to Tour with Meshuggah, TesseracT & Lillake
The PRP is reporting “credible rumors” that Megadeth will tour this summer with Meshuggah, TesseracT, and Lillake. The PRP has their shit together, so if they felt this rumor was worth running, I’m willing to bet it’s really happening — and as The PRP points out, all of the bands save for Lillake are already scheduled to appear at Montebello Rockfest in late June.
Assuming it’s true, Megadeth will be the third of the Big Four bands to be headlining a big summer tour that’s sure to be tremendously popular, after Metallica (with Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, and Gojira) and Slayer (with Lamb of God and Behemoth). C’mon, Anthrax! You just gonna sit on the sidelines and watch? Get some shit goin’!!!
It also seems worth noting that this does NOT seem to be the U.S. tour on which Megadeth will open for another, yet-to-be announced band… that doesn’t happen ’til the end of the year.
More news as we get it.
