Megadeth have released a video showing them preparing for their European tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Bad Wolves.

The run of 20 shows will get under way later tonight (January 20) at Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena, with the band previously sharing a selection of stills from warm up sessions.

The new video is accompanied by Megadeth’s So Far, So Good… So What! track 502 and it can be watched below.

The European tour will be Megadeth’s first live shows since vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine completed treatment for throat cancer last year.

Mustaine said in September 2019: “I wanted to take a moment to give you all an update on the current status of my health. I'm almost through the last round of treatment and my doctors are feeling very positive regarding my progress. 

“I want to thank all of you for the support and well wishes these last few months. I can’t express enough gratitude as it has made this hard road easier knowing you are in my corner fighting with me!”

Mustaine was forced to miss out on Megadeth’s inaugural Megacruise late last year, but said checked in on Friday to say: "I'm back."
