Megadeth To Tear Up ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Halloween Night
ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ is set to host an especially evil Halloween night show, bringing in thrash titans Megadeth as musical guests. The midnight talk show will technically air on Nov. 1, the day Megadeth’s long awaited album ‘TH1RT3EN,’ will hit stores.
Jimmy Kimmel has a long history of bringing in hard rock and metal acts as his musical guests, such as Judas Priest, Rammstein and Slipknot to name a few. Megadeth will make their ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ debut, unleashing a yet unannounced track from ‘TH1RT3EN.’ Megadeth have a difficult choice to make concerning their song choice – the band having already released three songs from ‘TH1RT3EN,’ ‘Public Enemy No. 1,’ ‘Never Dead’ and ‘Whose Life (Is It Anyways).
In addition to promoting ‘TH1RT3EN,’ Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and guitarist Chris Broderick have been teaching their techniques on the Jackson Clinic Tour. The thrash duo are currently in the midst of a six-city shred-fest in which they answer questions, give tutorials and promote their own signature Jackson guitars. Watch Ellefson and Broderick delivering the ‘Lick of the Day’ at one of the tour stops below.
