MEGADETH, fueled by Dave Mustaine‘s triumphant return to the stage following his diagnosis and recovery of throat cancer, will finally embark on their first North American tour since 2017.

Speaking on the long-awaited announcement of the rescheduled run, Mustaine says: “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!”

LAMB OF GOD pressed ahead with the release of its crushing self-titled album, “Lamb Of God”, which was one of the best-selling metal albums of 2020. The band now looks to take the show on the road as it returns to the stage for the first time since the release of the record. Frontman Randy Blythe states: “It’s been far too long since we got together to do our thing. By ‘we,’ I mean bands, road crew, bus drivers, truck drivers, local venue staff, vendors, audience, parking lot attendants, the freaking janitors- the whole damn enchilada. ALL OF US. TOGETHER. Everyone has been waiting, but the time has come to put the puzzle back together. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been more ready to hit the road with LAMB OF GOD. See y’all in a few months with MEGADETH, TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES. Over a year with no live music? These shows are gonna be INSANE…”

TRIVIUM‘s Matt Heafy adds: “‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’ couldn’t be stopped by anything. It is still happening, and we can’t wait to bring back shows with this monumental tour. We’re ready. Are you?”

IN FLAMES singer Anders Fridén said: “I can’t really describe how good it feels to be really talking about going on tour, let alone ‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’. This setup is long overdue and we can’t wait to finally make it happen.”
