Gigantour Dates Announced Featuring Megadeth, MotÃ¶rhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil
Earlier this year Noisecreep reported that Megadeth's Gigantour package tour would be returning for a new run. Well today we're happy to announce all of the official dates.
The multi-artist bill – with metal heavyweights Motörhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil all personally picked by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine – will kick off Jan. 26th in Camden, N.J. Before wrapping Feb. 28th in Denver, Colo., the tour will make stops all across the U.S. and Canada including a Jan. 28th show in New York and Feb. 24th in Los Angeles. Tickets are on-sale beginning Nov. 4th.
Lemmy Kilmister, frontman of the legendary Motörhead, looks forward to performing at this year's Gigantour amongst all the other talented musicians. "We've done festivals in Europe with Lacuna Coil and they're workaholics as well! Volbeat are great too; the whole bill is pretty diverse and I advise everyone who likes being deaf, and/or can lip-read already, to come out and see what the stuff that doesn't get any MTV Video Awards sounds like! Gigantour is just that!"
