While the thrash-metal giants of Megadeth had to call-off a round of tour dates this year due to the lead vocalist’s cancer diagnosis, the group is ready to head back on tour in 2020 with Five Finger Death Punch.
Lead vocalist Dave Mustaine, 57, was diagnosed with throat cancer earlier this year, causing the group to cancel their remaining 2019 dates. They were also supposed to support Ozzy Osbourne on his North American tour, but shows were cancelled after Osbourne suffered a handful of injuries and pneumonia.
However, Megadeth will be back on the road in 2020 with the metal group Five Finger Death Punch. The pair will hit dates across Europe for the MegaDethPunch tour, hitting cities like Helsinki, Oslo, Amsterdam, Paris, and Stockholm, although other dates have not been revealed at this time. While FFDP will headline, Megadeth and Bad Wolves will provide support. Early next month, the group is slated to reveal news, which may mean more tour dates will be revealed, or, they could share news about their 16th studio album – their first since 2016’s Dystopia.
Megadeth can also be found on the Pacific this October for their annual 5-day Mega Cruise, featuring performances from the band, as well as Lamb of God, Anrthax, Dragonforce, and Corrosion of Conformity.
FFDP will be touring this fall with Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves, and Fire From the Gods. The trek will kick-off on November 1 in Las Vegas, followed by gigs in Ft. Myers, Knoxville, Lexington, and Omaha.
