Megadeth Planning Tour With Motorhead, Volbeat, Lacuna Coil
Megadeth toured as part of the Rockstar Mayhem festival over the summer. It was while on that package tour alongside bands like Disturbed and Godsmack where Mustaine sustained a neck injury which required surgery. The tour was followed by the first ever East Coast appearance together of the Big 4 – aka Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – at New York’s Yankee Stadium.
A Megadeth, Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil package could presumably be the lineup for another round of the Mustaine curated ‘Gigantour,’ or perhaps simply a Megadeth headlining tour. Mustaine expressed an openness to more Big 4 shows, too.
As far as his rekindled friendship with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, who famously fired him from Metallica in the early ’80s, Mustaine told Street Date: “I’m looking forward to the time when me and Lars and James and [Megadeth bassist] David Ellefson make a record together.”
While it remains to be seen whether a Metalli-Deth type supergroup will ever emerge, fans can enjoy the talents of the two Daves on Megadeth’s new album ‘TH1RT3EN,’ which arrives in North America on Nov. 1, incidentally the same day Metallica will release their collaborative album with Lou Reed, ‘Lulu.’
