Anthrax announce 40th anniversary North American tour

Anthrax have announced dates for a 40th anniversary co-headlining tour of North America with Black Label Society.

The five-week series will open July 26 in Phoenix, AZ, with most shows featuring guests Hatebreed, and run until the end of August.

Anthrax and Black Label Society have shared festival stages and one-off shows numerous times, but this marks the very first time these two bands will tour together.

“Zakk has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988,” says Anthrax’s Scott Ian. “We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 - the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”

"Anthrax is one of The bestest legendary metal/thrash bands of all time,”
adds Wylde. “I have been buds with Scotty, Charlie, Frankie and Joey for over 30 years and they are some of the bestest people you will meet. Jon is the bestest new addition Anthrax could ask for - Hatebreed are the bestest hardcore/extreme metal band and bestest friends w/Anthrax & Black Label Society. The Anthrax + Black Label Society and Hatebreed tour is going to be one of the bestest tours ever!!”

A Citi cardmembers presale is underway now through Thursday, April 21 at 10:00 PM local time, with general public tickets going on sale Friday, April 22 at 10 AM local time.

Last year, Anthrax launched their 40th anniversary with a livestream performance that saw the band deliver a deep cuts set featuring tracks from their entire career-spanning catalog.
