Megadeth and Lamb Of God announce 2022 Metal Tour Of The Year

Megadeth and Lamb Of God will regroup for a second leg of US shows under the Metal Tour Of The Year banner this spring.

Following a 2021 run that saw the lineup perform before 172,000 fans in 29 cities, the bands will return to the road for new dates – with special guest Trivium and In Flames – starting April 9 in Las Vegas, NV.

"'The Metal Tour of The Year' is exactly what it sounds like — a night of some of the best heavy metal bands in the world — live and loud,” says Dave Mustaine. “Anyone who came to a show last year knows what I mean, only this one's going be even better. Do not miss out."

The tour will be part of Live Nation's Live Stubs initiative which provides digital, collectible NFT ticket stubs to ticket holders. Reimagining ticket stubs as digital collectible NFTs, Live Nation's Live Stubs will mirror the unique section, row, and seat of each ticket purchased, allowing fans to collect ticket stubs once again — this time with more capabilities. Live Stubs will automatically be included with tickets on select Live Nation shows in North America. Fans will be able to view, share, gift, trade, and resell their live stubs on Livenation.com. These are collector items and will not replace the digital tickets needed to physically enter the show.

Tickets and VIP packages for all artists go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, January 14 at 10 a.m. local time via MetalTourOfTheYear.com, with general public tickets going on sale Friday, January 14 at 10 a.m. local time.
