Megadeth and Slayer are joining forces for the American Carnage Tour.

November 16, 2009

Megadeth and Slayer camps just announced “The American Carnage Tour” for early 2010.

From the Press Release: ( |

“American Carnage” is the first time that Slayer and Megadeth will have toured the U.S. together since 1991’s epic “Clash of the Titans” tour. To celebrate that and in recognition of the tough economic times that many of their fans are having, Megadeth and Slayer have decided to roll back the price of a chunk of tickets at every U.S. show to the “1991 price” of $10.00. These specially-priced tickets will be limited and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Megadeth has also teamed with to provide an Ultimate Fan Package including premium seats, meet and greets, pre-show parties and more.

In addition, Testament – who was also on the “Clash of the Titans” bill, will be Special Guests on the entire tour, marking the first time that all three bands have shared a stage together in more than 18 years, and making this a “must see” metal event.

    I went to see them in Melbourne. Tom Araya lost his voice and was pulling kids up from the audience to sing. It was a brilliant thing to see. Dave Mustaine has not lost anthing at all. He walked off stage 3 songs in saying that he wasn’t going to continue playing if the sound wasn’t fixed. 10 minutes later he came back and played like a man posessed.
