Megadeth and Lamb Of God announce joint UK tour
13 Jul 2015
Megadeth and Lamb Of God join forces to co-headline a full UK and Ireland tour in November 2015.
The tour kicks off in Dublin on 9 November, powering through Glasgow, Manchester’s O2 Apollo, London’s Wembley Arena and rounding off at Birmingham's O2 Academy on 15 November.
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine said of the tour, “Having just finished an amazing record full of high-energy heavy metal with Chris Adler, Kiko Loureiro and David Ellefson, I am excited to announce this tour and see all of the metal fans come out for this one. I literally can’t wait to hit the stage again!”
After headlining the second stage at Download Festival last month, Virginian metal titans Lamb Of God are delighted to return to the UK as co-headliners.
Mark Morton of Lamb Of God said, "I’m more than pleased to let the world know that Lamb Of God will be sharing the bill with thrash metal legends, Megadeth…Also appearing will be our good friends and long time co-conspirators Children Of Bodom and Sylosis.
“This lineup is unstoppable! If you're not stoked about this bill, then you very simply do not like heavy metal! Take a plane, take a boat, hitch a ride, take the tube, bring your Wellies…see you there!"
The tour will coincide with the release of Megadeth’s 15th studio album, while Lamb of God’s blistering new album VII: Sturm und Drang will be released 24 July.
