In a year which seems to be treating us to one huge tour after another, Megadeth have announced they will be setting out on a co-headline tour with the mighty Lamb Of God this winter bringing with them Children Of Bodom and Sylosis in support. The tour is set to hit some huge venues and promises to be one of the biggest events on the Heavy calendar this year.

Full list of dates:

9th Nov - 3 Arena - Dublin
11th Nov - Breahead Arena - Glasgow
12th Nov - O2 Apollo - Manchester
14th Nov - SSE Wembley Arena - London
15th Nov - O2 Academy - Birmingham

Commenting on the tour, Dave Mustaine stated the following: "Having just finished an amazing record full of high-energy heavy metal with Chris Adler, Kiko Loureiro and David Ellefson, I am excited to announce this tour and see all of the metal fans come out for this one. I literally can’t wait to hit the stage again!”.

Following on, Mark Morton of Lamb of God added: " "I have to say that it's definitely exciting to be announcing this one! I'm more than pleased to let the world know that Lamb Of God will be sharing the bill with thrash metal legends, Megadeth, for five shows in the UK and Ireland, from November 9th-15th! It's been almost a decade since we've had the opportunity to tour with Megadeth, and we're absolutely thrilled to be teaming up with them once again for these very special UK dates. Also appearing will be our good friends and long time co-conspirators Children Of Bodom and Sylosis. This lineup is unstoppable! If you're not stoked about this bill, then you very simply do not like heavy metal! Take a plane, take a boat, hitch a ride, take the tube, bring your Wellies…see you there!"
