Megadeth, Lamb Of God, Trivium and In Flames announce 2021 tour

Megadeth and Lamb Of God (opens in new tab) have announced the rescheduled dates for their previously postponed 2020 tour.

The bands were forced to call off their summer North American run with Trivium (opens in new tab) and In Flames (opens in new tab) back in May due to lockdown restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic – but they’ve announced they’ll be back throughout July, August and September 2021.

The bands say in a joint statement: “We are excited to share the new 2021 dates for the Metal Tour Of The Year. All tickets will be honoured for the new rescheduled dates. 

“If you are a ticket holder and cannot make the new show, you will receive an email directly allowing you to request a refund. We can’t wait to get back on stage and get this tour kicked off.”

Megadeth are continuing to work on the follow-up to 2016’s Dystopia (opens in new tab), while Lamb Of God have just released their self-titled new studio album (opens in new tab).

Trivium are planning an arena style show from Florida on July 10 (opens in new tab), while In Flames launched their 13th album I, The Mask back in March.
