The Oklahoma City area was devastated by tornadoes earlier this year. On May 20, a powerful twister with winds up to 210 MPH struck the town of Moore, killing 24 people and injuring almost 400. Over a thousand home were destroyed, with damage estimated at $2 billion. As the area struggles to rebuild, Megadeth are doing their part to help.
Megadeth's Gigantour trek is coming together quite nicely, with Newsted being the latest confirmation for the expected summer run. Newsted are currently off to a hot start with their 'Metal' EP and have been playing to enthusiastic audiences so far this spring. The group's debut full-length is expected later this year and the Gigantour trek will provide a great set-up to build to the album's release.
