Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium, and In Flames: New Tour Dates Announced
Roughly a billion years ago, before the pandemic, Megadeth and Lamb of God were set to co-headline what surely would have been one of 2020’s most successful metal tours. Support would have come from Trivium and In Flames, who could easily co-headline their own tour, and the trek would have two legs, one in the summer and one in the fall.
So yeah. This was gonna be a big big BIG big big tour.
Lambgoat reports that the tour has now been re-scheduled, with all four bands still on the bill. It will still be both a summer and a fall tour, but there won’t be a break in-between anymore — it’ll kick off in late summer and run through early fall.
Says Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine of the trek:
“Can you hear that sound of armies on the march — of destruction on the horizon? 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!”
Dates are below.
It seems worth mentioning that Megadeth have been hard at work on a new album, which they’ve indicated is almost done but might not be released until they’re able to tour. Well, clearly, they’re planning on being able to tour soon. So we might end up getting new ‘Deth this year after all.
