Gigantour 2008 line-up announced

Tuesday, January 1, 2008 1:57 PM PT


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."

poor high on fire, getting exposed to new audiences and getting paid.

1/1/2008 3:04:47 PM
the EVEN funnier thing is, Suicide Silence was supposed to be the 6th band on this.

1/1/2008 3:12:26 PM
go fck Zoltan...

1/1/2008 3:31:43 PM
The funny part was that Mustaine created this tour to showcase envelope pushing bands by using the ticket-selling power of megadeth to get people in the door. The only band that fits that this year is HOF, and I don't even like them that much.

1/1/2008 3:54:12 PM

Unions.....

1/2/2008 1:38:34 PM
I thought this tour was supposed to be about musicianship and originality. This is a big step down from last year's lineup.

1/2/2008 2:50:12 PM
