Megadeth frontman Dave Mustainehas revealed that the band will donate the proceeds from the Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheatre date of Gigantour, slated for July 16, to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Mustaine feels that the heavy metal community should continue to do what it can to support the victims of the tragedy, which befell the state in May of this year.

“Many amazing bands have come forward to aid Oklahomans since the May tornadoes came and tore apart their homes and lives,” Mustaine said in a statement. “Now it’s time for heavy metal to give to this community!” Amen to that.

Mustaine is going a step further than donating show proceeds. The rest of the tour will do its part to also benefit the victims on Monday, July 15, as a charity, All-Star softball game has been scheduled and will be held at the ASA Hall of Fame Complex, which generously donated use of the field for the event.

Members of Megadeth and other bands appearing on the tour, along with local celebs, will participate. All of the proceeds from the game will be donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, as well. Patrons are asked to donate $5 if they want to come and enjoy the fun taking place on the diamond.

The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma has been providing a food pantry for folks in Moore, Okla. since the storms hit, serving over 200 families each day.

Big ups to Mustaine, Megadeth and the Gigantour bands for doing their part for the tornado victims.
