Megadeth and Lamb Of God have announced that they will be launching a brand new 2022 leg of their popular Metal Tour Of Year that will feature support from Trivium and In Flames.
The new leg follows their success U.S. tour leg last year and is set to kick off on April 9th in Las Vegas, NV at the Michelob Ultra Arena and will be wrapping up on May 15th in Allentown, PA at the PPL Center.
Megadeth frontman, Dave Mustaine had this to say, "The Metal Tour of The Year is exactly what it sounds like - a night of some of the best heavy metal bands in the world - live and loud. Anyone who came to a show last year knows what I mean, only this one's going be even better. Do not miss out."
Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe shared, "It was great to get out on the road for an incredible tour last summer with Megadeth, Trivium and Hatebreed so we figured we'd do it again! We look forward to hitting new cities with Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames, who we're happy to have over for leg 2!"
Trivium's Matthew Kiichi Heafy said, "The Metal Tour Of The Year was one of the strongest, most incredible Metal tours in ages - it's namesake nothing but accurate. How do you follow that up? By doing it again - even bigger, even better, and have it play everywhere it didn't on the first leg. MTOTYII - let's do this. "
In Flames vocalist Anders Friden added, "We are excited to finally be able to join our dear friends in Megadeth, Lamb of God, and Trivium on this year's, Metal Tour of The Year! We can't wait to be back on the road in America and to reunite with you all. Don't miss this tour it's a juggernaut."
