MEGADETH Plays Sold-Out Concert In DAVID ELLEFSON’s Hometown

Megadeth Live 2021

MEGADETH played their seventh show with bassist James LoMenzo in nearly 12 years this past Sunday night (August 29) in Phoenix, Arizona as part of their co-headlining “The Metal Tour Of The Year” with LAMB OF GOD.

Setlist was as follows:

01. Hangar 18
02. Take No Prisoners
03. She-Wolf
04. The Conjuring
05. A Tout Le Monde
06. Trust
07. Conquer Or Die!
08. Dystopia
09. Tornado Of Souls
10. Symphony Of Destruction
11. Peace Sells


12. Holy Wars… The Punishment Due

Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be seen below.

As previously reported, MEGADETH longtime bassist David Ellefson was fired from the group last month after sexually tinged messages and explicit video footage involving the 56-year-old musician leaked.

Dave Mustaine recently confirmed that David Ellefson‘s long-completed bass tracks on the upcoming MEGADETH album have been removed and re-recorded by another bassist prior to the record’s release. It is yet unclear if LaMenzo is the bassist who re-recorded bass tracks or not.
