Megadeth announce Gigantour lineup and dates

Megadeth have announced the lineup and dates for their 2013 edition of Gigantour.

Joining the band will be Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Newsted, and Death Division – all personally picked by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine.

Gigantour 2013 will kick off on July 3rd in Gilford, NH and wind its way through North America, hitting cities throughout Canada and the U.S., wrapping on August 11th in Toronto, Canada.

Tickets go on sale on May 10th with a special Gigantour pre-sale on May 9th. Check for further details.

“This year’s power-packed lineup is probably the best Gigantour yet, and we’ve had some pretty massive Gigantours over the years,” says Mustaine. “Gigantour 2013 brings four of my favorite bands, each centered around a superstar. With Zakk, David, Vinnie, and Jason there are going to be fans from Ozzy to Disturbed to Pantera to Metallica and everything that’s metal in-between! Don’t miss the metal festival of the summer!”

Mustaine founded the tour in 2005 and over the years has had established artists such as Volbeat, Motorhead, Anthrax, Fear Factory and Dream Theater, as well as giving (then) up-and-coming artists Lacuna Coil, Into Eternity and Sanctity their first break on a national festival tour.

In advance of the tour, Megadeth will release their new album, “Super Collider,” on June 4.
