Rob Zombie, Megadeth Announce Co-Headlining Tour
Rob Zombie and Megadeth have just announced a co-headlining tour. The trek, which marks the first time the two bands have toured together, kicks off Friday, May 11 in Holmdel, N.J. and encompasses high-profile appearances at several rock festivals, including Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma.
Rob Zombie will headline Rocklahoma, co-line (with Incubus) Rock on the Range, and will close all shows on the Megadeth dates. The tour wraps Saturday, March 26 at Rocklahoma – a list of confirmed dates is below.
The tour will come on the heels of Megadeth’s critically acclaimed return of the traveling festival Gigantour, created and curated by frontman Dave Mustaine. Rave reviews have poured in for the festival, which also features Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil. “The return of Gigantour, a nicely curated package tour of heavy metal bands, is just one more step in a great run underway by Megadeth,” wrote the Boston Globe.
This will be Rob Zombie’s first concert tour since last summer’s Hell on Earth co-headline trek with Slayer. Never one to play it safe, Zombie – with guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D, and Ginger Fish on drums – will bring his legendary stage show out in full force on these dates.
