Rob Zombie and Megadeth have just announced a co-headlining tour.
The trek, which marks the first time the two bands have toured together, begins Friday, May 11th in Holmdel, New Jersey and encompasses high-profile appearances at several rock festivals, including Rock On The Range and Rocklahoma. Rob Zombie will headline Rocklahoma, co-line (with Incubus) Rock On The Range, and will close all shows on the Megadeth dates. The tour ends Saturday, March 26th at Rocklahoma (see list of confirmed dates below).
The tour will come on the heels of Megadeth's critically acclaimed return of the traveling festival Gigantour, created and curated by frontman Dave Mustaine. Rave reviews have poured in for the festival, which also features Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil.
This will be Rob Zombie's first concert tour since last summer's 'Hell on Earth' co-headline tour with Slayer. Zombie spent last fall and winter shooting his sixth feature film, 'The Lords of Salem' that he wrote and directed and is making with the producers of the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise. With principal photography completed, the film is currently in post-production.
Never one to play it safe, Zombie with guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D, and Ginger Fish on drums will bring his legendary stage show out in full force on these dates.
