VIDEO: Megadeth performs acoustic set outside Buenos Aires hotel

Megadeth performed a four-song acoustic set for fans outside the Four Seasons Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Tuesday.

The afternoon session was streamed live via frontman Dave Mustaine’s Periscope account, with some footage filmed by the singer’s wife, Pam.

Megadeth opened the set with two tracks from 1997’s “Cryptic Writings” - “Trust” and “She-Wolf”, followed by “A Tout Le Monde” from 1994’s “Youthanasia” and the closer of their classic, “Symphony Of Destruction” from 1992’s “Countdown To Extinction.”

The afternoon performance was followed by a full electric arena show Tuesday night at Estadio Luna Park as part of the band’s current tour of South America in support of their latest album, “Dystopia.”

The Latin American trek wraps up in Monterrey, Mexico on September 1, and will be followed by a fall US tour that will begin in Casper, WY on September 20.

The 4-week run will see the thrash legends joined by Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, Metal Church and Havok.
