Megadeth to livestream first Budokan concert performance

Megadeth will livestream their first-ever performance from the legendary Budokan Arena in Tokyo, Japan on February 27.

Billed as “They Only Come Out At Night”, the global livestream event can be viewed as it happens on Monday, February 27 at 6 p.m. Tokyo time (JST), and available on demand for two days.

Fans will receive virtual VIP access to the band pre-show, with an exclusive behind-the-scenes video capturing Megadeth’s trip through Japan.

The show will then be re-broadcast three times, so fans around the world can watch at a time suitable for them; thereafter, the whole performance will be available to watch on-demand for another 48 hours.

Ticketholders will get access to the livestream, all re-broadcasts, and to on-demand replays. Fans can buy tickets here and watch all broadcasts and on-demand replays from anywhere around the world – except Japan, where it is only accessible via Wowow.

Megadeth are on the road supporting their latest album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”; the group’s sixteenth studio record sees founder Dave Mustaine working alongside co-producer Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Parkway Drive), who together oversaw 2016’s “Dystopia.”

You can pick up the new album here.
