MEGADETH And LAMB OF GOD Announce Second Leg Of ‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’

Lamb of God Megadeth

Following the enormous success of their 2021 co-headline U.S. tour, metal titans MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD have announced the second U.S. run of their aptly named “The Metal Tour Of The Year”. Joining them will be special guests TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES.

Tickets for the tour are available at this location.

“The Metal Tour Of The Year” was originally announced and planned for 2020 but was halted by the pandemic. Fans waited patiently for touring to return and in the summer of 2021 were granted their wish. “The Metal Tour Of The Year” was one of the first national amphitheatre tours to hit the road in 2021 and saw co-headliners MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD hit 29 cities across North America with special guests TRIVIUM and HATEBREED, who stepped in to replace IN FLAMES who couldn’t join the tour due to travel restrictions. The tour was met with enormous acclaim, truly living up to its name and playing to a whopping 172,000 metal fans in the process.

Speaking on the success of the initial leg of the tour and his excitement in hitting the road again in 2022, MEGADETH‘s leader and frontman Dave Mustaine says: “‘The Metal Tour of The Year’ is exactly what it sounds like — a night of some of the best heavy metal bands in the world — live and loud. Anyone who came to a show last year knows what I mean, only this one’s going be even better. Do not miss out.”

Randy Blythe, LAMB OF GOD frontman, adds: “It was great to get out on the road for an incredible tour last summer with MEGADETHTRIVIUM and HATEBREED so we figured we’d do it again! We look forward to hitting new cities with MEGADETHTRIVIUM and IN FLAMES, who we’re happy to have over for leg 2!”

TRIVIUM‘s Matthew Heafy comments: “‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’ was one of the strongest, most incredible Metal tours in ages — its namesake nothing but accurate. How do you follow that up? By doing it again — even bigger, even better, and have it play everywhere it didn’t on the first leg. ‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’ – let’s do this. “

IN FLAMES singer Anders Fridén states: “We are excited to finally be able to join our dear friends in MEGADETHLAMB OF GOD and TRIVIUM on this year’s ‘Metal Tour of The Year’! We can’t wait to be back on the road in America and to reunite with you all. Don’t miss this tour it’s a juggernaut.”
