Megadeth have begun rehearsal sessions as they prepare to head out on tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Bad Wolves later this month.

The run of European shows will get under way at Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena on January 20, with vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine, bassist David Ellefson, guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren posting a series of images on Facebook as they get ready for the 20-date run.

The pictures are accompanied by the caption: “Day one of rehearsals. We’re coming for you, Europe!”

Speaking previously about the tour, Mustaine said: “Hindsight is always 20-20, but looking back it’s still a bit fuzzy. Looking forward, you’ll be in trouble if you don’t come see us with Five Finger Death Punch in early 2020. You don’t wanna miss it. See you soon!”

Mustaine underwent surgery for throat cancer last year and checked in back in September to say he was about to complete his last round of medical treatment.

He missed out on Megadeth’s inaugural Megacruise, but said last month he was excited to be hitting the road again.
