Favorite Gigantour 2013 Act – Readers Poll
It’s been one hell of a summer for rock and metal fans, as Dave Mustaine put together quite the bill for Gigantour 2013. The Megadeth-led touring festival featured special guests Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Newsted and Death Division. With the final date now played, we ask you which of these acts was your favorite Gigantour performer of the summer.
Megadeth hit the ground running, with their ‘Super Collider’ album just hitting stores as the festival was beginning. Black Label Society brought their usual brand of rock awesomeness, with Zakk Wylde‘s crew promoting their ‘Unblackened’ effort. And Hellyeah had the momentum well underway with their 2012 album ‘Band of Brothers’ to support.
The other bands on the bill could be considered new, though they featured familiar performers. Device, led by David Draiman, continued to dominate 2013 with music from their self-titled debut disc. Newsted, fronted by Jason Newsted, used Gigantour as the springboard for their new ‘Heavy Metal Music’ album. And then there was Death Division, who turned a lot of heads opening shows with music from their ‘MMXIII’ EP.
That’s a lot of great music for one very affordable ticket price, making Gigantour one of the best tours of summer 2013. For those of you who saw the tour, and even those who didn’t, here’s your chance to tell us which of these acts rocked your summer of 2013 the most.
