Proper spelling of "death" aside, Megadeth has accomplished much in its 30-plus years as a band. Middle age hasn't stopped Dave Mustaine and company from making new music, and the band now has a new album, Dystopia, coming out on January 22.
The subsequent album tour will stop in Phoenix on Saturday, February 27, at Comerica Theatre. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 11, at 10 a.m.
In addition to Mustaine, the touring band will include Kiko Loureiro (formerly of Angra) on guitar, Phoenix's David “Junior” Ellefson on bass, and drummer Chris Adler (Lamb of God).
