Two of the biggest bands in Heavy Metal — MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD — will be joining forces on a co-headline tour across North America this year, presented by SiriusXM. And to add to the firepower of this already formidable tour, TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES are joining, making this THE must-see Heavy music package of the year. The 55-date trek will be split into two legs, the first of which kicks off June 12 at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, and wraps August 1 at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California. The second run launches October 2 at iTHINK Financial Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida, and runs through November 13 at the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada.

MEGADETH, fueled by Dave Mustaine's triumphant return to the stage following his diagnosis and recovery of throat cancer, will embark on their first North American tour since 2017. Speaking on the epic announcement, Mustaine says: "Hello me! I'm back again, better than ever and coming to a town near you with LAMB OF GOD, TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES. If you want high octane metal madness this is the tour for you."

LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton states: "The world has never needed heavy more than it does today and top to bottom, this tour delivers! LAMB OF GOD has toured with and been friends with all of these bands for years, but for all of us to be on the same bill is something extra special. Come early and stay late. This is THE Metal tour of the year."

TRIVIUM's Matt Heafy adds: "We are happy to be a part of the biggest real Metal tour of the year. This tour is the main event and represents Heavy Metal and the culture that goes with it."

IN FLAMES singer Anders Fridén says: "We were honored to be asked to join this package. We were actually supposed to take this summer off, but of course we couldn’t say no. After playing shows with all of these guys for years, 2020 is going to feel like a kick-ass reunion. See you on the road, Jesterheads!"
