This year’s Gigantour will begin in Gilford, New Hampshire on July 3rd with stops throughout the US and Canada, ultimately wrapping things up in Toronto on August 11th. The 2013 lineup includes headliner Megadeth and Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Newsted, and Death Division, with Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine – who founded the tour in 2005 – hand-picking the acts.
“This year’s power-packed lineup is probably the best Gigantour yet, and we’ve had some pretty massive Gigantours over the years. Gigantour 2013 brings four of my favorite bands, each centered around a superstar. With Zakk, David, Vinnie, and Jason there are going to be fans from Ozzy to Disturbed to Pantera to Metallica and everything that’s metal in-between! Don’t miss the metal festival of the summer!,” said Mustaine.
Tickets go on sale at gigantour.com on May 10, 2013 (with a special pre-sale on May 9th).
In addition to announcing the new tour, Megadeth confirmed the release on June 4th of their 14th studio album, Super Collider.
