Megadeth confirm North American tour dates

Megadeth have confirmed their 2016 North American tour dates and revealed Suicidal Tendencies, Children Of Bodom and Havok as support acts.

Dave Mustaine and co launch the tour in Dallas, Texas, on February 20 and wrap up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on March 26. The run is in support of the band’s upcoming 15th album Dystopia, released on January 22.

Megadeth last shared the stage with death metal act Children of Bodom on the North American leg of Mustaine’s inaugural festival Gigantour in 2008.

Mustaine said last month: “I’m really excited about coming back to the States and doing our North American tour there. The dates are coming along pretty well. And we’ve got three bands we’re gonna be taking out with us there.”

The successor to 2013’s Super Collider, Dystopia was recorded earlier in the year in Nashville, Tennessee and was mixed by Josh Wilbur, who has previously worked with Lamb of God, All That Remains and Gojira.
