Megadeth will join Scorpions on a North American fall tour launching September 14th in Reading, Pennsylvania and concluding October 15th in Tampa, Florida. The 16-date trek, dubbed the "Crazy World Tour," celebrates Scorpions' 1990 LP of the same name. Full ticket details will be made available via the band's official website.

Megadeth, the long-reigning gods of thrash-metal, released their 15th LP, Dystopia, last year. The acclaimed record ranked sixth on Rolling Stone's 20 Best Metal Albums of 2016 list, and its title track earned the band their first Grammy win (for Best Metal Performance) following 11 prior nominations.

Earlier in March, singer-guitarist Dave Mustaine hosted a crew of metal-heads at his California home for a "Megadeth Boot Camp," where fans took guitar, drum and bass lessons; tasted wine, soaked in an intimate acoustic concert and jammed with the band on their 1992 hit "Symphony of Destruction."
