Megadeth add 4 Australia dates

Megadeth’s world tour has been extended to include four dates in Australia.

The metal giants will play in Red Hill, Paddington, West Melbourne and Brendale in October, after dates in Japan and ahead of shows in India, Russia, Ireland and the UK.

Guests on the Australian shows will be Children Of Bodom.

Megadeth are due to release their 15th album later this year. It features Angra quitarist Kiko Loureiro and Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler, who were brought in after Shawn Drover and Chris Broderick quit.

Adler will be pulling double duty on the UK and Ireland dates, as Megadeth share the bill with Lamb Of God.
