Megadeth and Lamb Of God are playing Wembley Arena on 14 November 2015 as part of a full UK and Eire co-headline tour.
The jaunt will coincide with the release of Megadeth’s 15th studio album which they have recently completed, and the 30th anniversary of their influential debut ‘Killing Is My Business…And Business Is Good!’.
“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,” said Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. “I literally can’t wait to hit the stage again.”
Formed in 1983, the trash-metal pioneers have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide. Mustaine was recently awarded the Golden God Award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2015.
After headlining the second stage at the Download Festival last month, the November dates mark a quick UK return for co-headliners Lamb of God.
The Virginian metallers are on the verge of releasing their new album, ‘VII: Sturm und Drang’, which is due on 24 July. Their longtime drummer Chris Adler recently joined the Megadeth ranks as well, so will perform with both bands at each show.
“It’s been almost a decade since we’ve had the opportunity to tour with Megadeth, and we’re absolutely thrilled to be teaming up with them once again for these very special UK dates,” said Lamb of God’s Mark Morton.
Support comes from Finland’s Children Of Bodom and UK band Sylosis.
Tickets go on general sale at LiveNation from 17 July.
