Megadeth / Slayer / Testament: First Tour Dates Announced

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , on November 17, 2009 by Tickets There

That’s right heads, three of thrash metals most iconic acts are definitely touring together. The tour has been dubbed American Carnage and it’s easily the most exciting news in heavy metal since…..since Metalica released Kill Em All.

Megadeth, Slayer, Testament and some other band (can’t remember the name) have announced they will be touring together early next year. Fans of the bands will remember a rumor that Metallica were also meant to be on that bill. Unfortunately they aint but does anyone really care? Megadeth and Slayer together is one serious motherfucker of show but Testament aswell!!!

Megadeth and Slayer have played several shows together recently in Australia and Canada. Despite their topsy turvy past, they seem to be working out their differences and the entire heavy metal world (out side of the states) is hoping this tour makes it’s way to all of us. Both bands have new albums out and neither has lined u many European solo shows so fingers crossed.

Anyway, it’s early, I’m very, very tired and in need of sleep so we’ll leave it there. Please visit Blabbermouth and see how a respectable site reports this kind of LIFE CHANGING MEGA-NEWS J
