Megadeth Announce U.S. Tour With Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies + Metal Church
Update: Havok is no longer on the bill.
Megadeth have just announced yet another massive 2016 tour! The thrash legends will be taking Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies and Metal Church on the road this fall.
Earlier this year, Suicidal Tendencies and Havok shared the road with Megadeth. Obviously the chemistry was great, because fans in the U.S. will have the chance to see it again. Amon Amarth and Metal Church will round out the bill, creating an absolutely stacked lineup that metalheads simply can’t miss.
"We are proud to be supporting the legendary and mighty Megadeth on their US tour in September!” says Amon Amarth. “Sharpen your blades and bring out your drinking horns, 'cause this will be a brutal show that no true metalhead should miss! Raise your horns!"
This will be Megadeth’s first U.S. tour with new drummer Dirk Verbeuren in tow as an official member. The Soilwork percussionist was given a glowing recommendation from Lamb of God’s Chris Adler, who held down the kit for Megadeth’s most recent tours and the band’s newest album, Dystopia. With the announcement of this thrash-tastic tour, Megadeth have also released a new music video for “Post American World.” Watch the clip here.
Tickets will go on sale July 22 at 10AM local time. Megadeth Cyber Army club members will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning July 19 at 10AM local time.
