Megadeth has announced an upcoming tour, and Phoenix is one of the stops.

They'll bring the Destroy All Enemies Tour to Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre on Aug. 8. Mudvayne and All That Remains are the supporting acts.

Performing classic hits from "Rust in Peace," "Countdown to Extinction" and more, the tour also brings Dave Mustaine and bandmates back to North America to perform their latest studio album "The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!"

"Our Crush the World Tour has been a tremendous experience for the four of us,” Dave Mustaine said in the tour announcement, referring to the band's most recent excursion. “We are all playing tight, and that has made it possible for me to really focus on solos and singing, we are playing more songs than ever before and we are closer to each other, onstage and off. I'm excited to see Mudvayne, and All That Remains. Join us as we Destroy All Enemies.”

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday on the Ticketmaster website. A number of VIP packages and upgrades are available.
