MEGADETH ANNOUNCES SUMMER/FALL TOUR DATES WITH CO-HEADLINER LAMB OF GOD AND SPECIAL GUESTS TRIVIUM AND IN FLAMES

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 begins June 12th at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, and ends on August 1st at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California. The second run picks up on October 2nd at iTHINK Financial Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida, and runs through November 13th 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!”

Tickets and VIP packages for all four artists go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 14 at 10 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com. Citi is the official presale credit card of the tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets and VIP packages beginning Tuesday, February 11 at 10 a.m. local time until Thursday, February 13 at 10 p.m. local time through Citi Entertainment.

BILLY SHEEHAN SAYS HE WAS NEVER “OFFICIALLY” ASKED TO JOIN VAN HALEN

Despite a recent interview bassist Billy Sheehan gave, where he stated that he was previously asked to join Van Halen, he is now clarifying that he was never officially asked to join the band.

On February 7th, Sheehan took to his Facebook page to share an article headlined Mr Big’s Billy Sheehan Explains Why He Declined To Be Van Halen’s Bassist and he included the following message: “More fake news —- Though I spoke w EVH on three different occasions where he asked me about being in his band, the offer never came through. They never followed through on any sort of an official offer and therefore I never ‘turned down’ any offer, because it eventually fell through. This is the result of recycling old news ( I’ve spoken of this before) because I thought I’d do a favor [to] some little website that asked for an interview, and then they decided to make this the headline ( for clicks) and many other websites picked up the ‘story’ to get more clicks. Recycled, inaccurate and rebranded old news. Never happened.”

AEROSMITH WORK ON GETTING DRUMMER JOEY KRAMER TO RE-JOIN THE BAND

TMZ reports that Aerosmith is working on bringing drummer Joey Kramer back into the fold.

Sources close to the rock band, tell the site, Kramer has been working with bandmates Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford the past several days to help him return, but he’s not quite there yet.

TMZ were told Kramer’s been practicing, and once he can prove he’s up to the task, he will be re-joining the group.

Sources tell TMZ the other band members never intended to push Kramer out, and never wanted him to feel that way — they’re all trying to make amends after the recent drama.

Hopefully soon, Kramer will able to return to his old spot.

ROSE TATTOO TO RELEASE “OUTLAWS” ALBUM IN MARCH, ANNOUNCES MAY U.S. TOUR DATES

Rose Tattoo will release Outlaws, a re-recording of the iconic Rock N Roll Outlaw LP, on March 6th.

In addition to classics like Nice Boys (Don’t Play Rock ‘N’ Roll)Rock N’ Roll OutlawOne Of The Boys and Bad Boy For Love, which have etched their way into the music landscape over the last 40-plus years, Outlaws includes three bonus tracks from the very early days, songs that were demoed and never made the final cut, those being “love song” Rosetta, written back in 1975 by Angry Anderson and Ian RilensSnow Queen and Sweet Love Rock and Roll, penned by Ian Rilens.

Lovable rogue Angry Anderson recruited the best in the business to head up the assault on this one, comprising legendary bass player Mark Evans of AC/DC fame, iconic guitarist Bob Spencer, Dai Pritchard on slide and Jackie Barnes on drums.

“For me, that’s critically important, cosmically important, because this album is all about history, heritage, honor and respect,” Angry said. “Just as significant is the forging, the embracing, and the official signing on if you like, to that history by THIS band and having them make their own reverent mark. This really is about honoring the past and respecting the present.”

Rock N’ Roll Outlaw was originally recorded at the famed Alberts studios, produced by the legendary team Vanda & Young and, released through Albert, Repertoire Records in late 1978. xRose Tattoo’s debut album was described as “a dangerous, unpredictable, monster of a record whose power has hardly diminished an ounce in the decades since this album cemented the band’s foundation for the years to come.”

Added Anderson, “The universe owes a deep unpayable debt to this band’s founders Peter Wells and Ian Rilen as well as Mick Cocks, Dallas ‘Digger’ Royal, Geordie Leach, Rockin’ Robin Riley and Lobby Loyde. Paul DeMarco, Dai Pritchard and Steve Kinghave, of course, honorably kept the temple flame burning brightly more recently, but the album also rightfully acknowledges the foresight and support of Ted Albert, Fifa Riccobono, George Young and Harry Vanda who saw something in this band back when most other record companies were calling the cops.”

Outlaws will be released by Cleopatra Records on all digital platforms as well as on CD and a special limited-edition vinyl pressing in your choice of red or silver. Additionally, Rose Tattoo will undertake its first U.S. tour since 1982 this May.
