Gigantour 2008 line-up announced

The lineup for this year's Gigantour has officially been announced. The tour is scheduled to kick off mid-April and run through end of May and will feature Megadeth, In Flames, Children Of Bodom, Job For A Cowboy, and High On Fire. Tour dates will be announced in the near future. Dave Mustaine comments: "The breaking news is we are going to have five bands this year, instead of eight. The decision to drop it down from eight bands to five was based on timing, set lengths, stage sizes, unions, and most importantly allowing 'us' - the musicians - to deliver to 'you' - the fans - the best shows we can."
