Megacruise 2019

Megadeth's first-ever Megacruise will commence next October and also feature Anthrax, Testament, and Devildriver, among others. The NCL Jewel will set sail on October 13, 2019 from Los Angeles, California and dock in San Diego, California and Ensenada, Mexico before returning on October 18, 2019.

Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine had this to say via Full Metal Jackie's: "We've got a lot of really great bands that we've planned. One I'm super excited about is Armored Saint. I've always been a fan of Armored Saint. Of course, they're not headlining — there's several other bands that are above them on the bill — but they're there. And I like Armored Saint a lot. I like the Sandoval brothers and love Joey [Vera]. So, I think it's gonna be fun. And that's what we wanted — we wanted something that people would stop thinking about, 'How do we have the most successful this?', and, 'How do we make the most money that?' Well, how about you treat the fans with dignity and respect and you give them their money's worth, you know?"

Bands confirmed thus far:

Megadeth
Anthrax
Testament
Corrosion of Conformity
Devildriver
Doro
John 5
Armored Saint

Megadeth's answer to the Big Four shows. Megadeth didn't headline because they blow so they're throwing their own party where they get to headline.

How is this better than 70,000 tons of metal tour thing?

I'm gay and I'm curious about the difference.

JOHN BUSH will join Anthrax for a brief run through of their sound of white noise catalog with him on vocals. Mister Belladonna will sit there befuddled as he watches his former replacement sing to the classic songs "ONLY & BLACK LODGE" they will also share a well deserved clove after their sets are finished.

Anthrax should play The Sound Of White Noise in it's entirety with Johnny Bush on Vocals. Joey Belladonna could sing back ups cause he is a known Golden Throat Crooner. Croon upon my tool, you long haired fool. suck it hard,suck it long.
