Megadeth and Lamb of God will team up for a massive co-headlining North American tour this year.

The 55-date trek will be split into two legs, the first of which kicks off June 12th at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, and wraps August 1st at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California. The second run launches October 2nd at iTHINK Financial Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida, and runs through November 13th at the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada.

In addition to Megadeth and Lamb of God, the tour will boast opening sets from Trivium and In Flames.

Tickets will go on sale on February 14th at 10 a.m. local time via LiveNation (on-sale times may differ for certain cities, as noted below). Citi cardholders will have access to pre-sale tickets from February 11th at 10 a.m. local time through February 13th at 10 p.m. local time. VIP packages for all four artists on the tour will also be available.

The tour marks Megadeth’s first North American run since 2017 and follows Dave Mustaine’s diagnosis and recovery from throat cancer. Mustaine was diagnosed right as Megadeth was recording their new album, and at a recent show in London, he said he underwent 51 radiation treatments and nine chemotherapy treatments but has since been ruled “100 percent” cancer-free.

While Megadeth has not offered any updates on their as-yet-untitled 16th album, Mustaine is prepping a new book about the band’s seminal 1990 LP, Rust in Peace. Mustaine co-wrote the book, Building the Perfect Beast, with Joel Selvin, and it’s set to arrive September 8th.

As for Lamb of God, last week they ended a five-year hiatus with a new song, “Checkmate.” The track will appear on the band’s upcoming self-titled album, which will arrive on May 8th.
