This event has been and gone.
Megadeth and Lamb Of God have announced a full UK & Eire co-headline tour in November 2015.
The tour will coincide with the release, later this year, of Megadeth’s 15th Studio album through Tradecraft / Universal. Lamb of God's blistering new album 'VII: Sturm und Drang' is released on July 24 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Dave Mustaine says, “Having just finished an amazing record full of high-energy heavy metal with Chris Adler, Kiko Loureiro and David Ellefson, I am excited to announce this tour and see all of the metal fans come out for this one. I literally can’t wait to hit the stage again!”
Support comes from Children Of Bodom and Sylosis.
Formed in 1983 by guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine after an acrimonious departure from Metallica, Megadeth became one of the most acclaimed and successful thrash metal bands of their era and beyond. Mustaine expanded on the typical metal blueprint by speeding up the tempos and putting an emphasis on his lightning-fast technical guitar skills. His nihilistic lyrics and unrelenting musical attack resulted in a series of thrash metal classics from Megadeth throughout the 1980s and into the early '90s. Along with being considered high water marks of the metal genre, 1986's Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? and 1992's Countdown to Extinction sold in the millions and influenced the next generation of speed metal bands.

Children of Bodom
Children of Bodom are a Finnish heavy metal band featuring modern day guitar hero Alexi Laiho. COB can be as downright brutal as any metal band when the situation demands but what places this band at the pinnacle of the pack is the way it can suddenly dish up huge swathes of melody and instantly memorable choruses with an unmatched degree of musicianship.
