Megadeth announces 2014 world tour

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 4:32 PM PT / 3,532 views
Official press release: Multi-platinum selling thrash metal band Megadeth is set to embark on a world tour in over 25 countries across four continents starting in April. The tour follows a first-ever performance at Copley Symphony Hall on April 12, where Dave Mustaine will collaborate with the San Diego Symphony, demonstrating his classically-influenced technique as a featured soloist in "Symphony Interrupted." Beginning at 8:00 PM, Mustaine and the Symphony will perform renditions of the "Summer" and "Winter" movements from Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons", and Bach's "Air" (on the G string), in a completely original way. Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" and Antonin Dvorak's "New World Symphony" will also be performed by the symphony during the concert. When asked about "Symphony Interrupted", Mustaine said "I love the challenge. I really admire this genre of music because of the level of skill required and there are great dark undertones in these incredible pieces. The marriage of two such distinctly different genres is one thing, but cross-pollinating different societies is a whole new level of badass! I'm used to them being before me, but it's a bit unnerving to know so many talented eyes will be on my back. It's a bit intimidating, and to be given the opportunity to interpret these melodies - to meld what I am best at with what they incredibly present, it is a great honor." 4/12 San Diego, CA @ Copley Symphony Hall 4/17 Las Vegas, NV @ Pearl Concert Theater 4/19 Tuscon, AZ @ Pima County Fair 4/22 Quito, Ecuador @ Agros Casa de Cultura 4/24 Montevideo, Uruguay @ Teatro de Verano 4/26 Santiago, Chile @ Movistar Arena 4/29 Córdoba, Argentina @ Plaza de la Música 5/01 Buenos Aires, Argentina @ Estadio Cubierto Malvinas 5/04 Sao Paulo, Brazil @ Espaco Das Americas 5/06 Bogota, Colombia @ Royal Center 6/06 Solvesborg, Sweden @ Sweden Rock Festival 6/10 Paris, France @ Le Palais Des Sports 6/11 Utrecht, Netherlands @ TivoliVredenburg 6/13 Copenhagen, Denmark @ Copenhell Festival 6/15 Nickelsdorf, Austria @ Nova Rock 6/16 Budapest, Hungary @ Aerodrome Festival 6/17 Prague, Czech Republic @ Aerodrome Festival 6/22 Clisson, France @ Hellfest 6/23 Luxembourg, Luxembourg @ Rockhal 6/26 Rome, Italy @ Rock In Roma @ Ippodromo Capannelle 6/27 Milan, Italy @ City Sound @ Ippodromo Del Galoppo 6/28 Winterthur, Switzerland @ Eishalle Deutweg 7/24 Tolmin, Slovenia @ Metaldays Festival 7/26 Oulu, Finland @ Qstock 8/01 Rejmyre, Sweden @ Skogsrojet Festival 8/02 Wacken, Germany @ Wacken Open Air Festival 8/04 Istanbul, Turkey @ Rock Off Festival 8/09 Leeuwarden, Netherlands @ Into The Grave 8/10 Derbyshire, England @ Catton Park

Way to give Islander some scene cred for apparently liking Megadeth. Nice backfire trolls and thanks for ruining the joke

Islander is a glorified Megadeth cover band.

Just wanna say I think Megadeth is terrible, and Islander probably gets more tail than they ever did before they were humped over metal dads. thanks for reading guys. Lambgoat strong.

Megadeth sucks, boyeeeeeeee! Lololololol p.s. Stay trendy, Islander.

Dave Mustaine is Euphoric *Tips Christian Fedora*.

Jesus, which member of Islander is commenting here? Read up on why Carnifex left Victory, if you ain't selling, that pretty little mouth ain't got nothing for Tony. Please share a tour announcement you pole riders

Does it matter?We took a deal that worked for us; not y'all or anyone else on any of these childish sites...but then again all the shit talking on here has helped "publicize" in conjunction. We tour, we do our thing. I don't see any other bands or you trolls landing HR for album guest spots OR actually performing live with us.

Islander shouldn't be relevant.
