Fan-filmed video footage of MEGADETH‘s October 11 performance at Sands Casino Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania can be seen below.
MEGADETH‘s tour with AMON AMARTH, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, METAL CHURCH and BUTCHER BABIES kicked off on September 20 in Casper, Wyoming, with dates booked through October 16 in Camden, New Jersey.
MEGADETH is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, “Dystopia”, which came out in January.
MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently stated about the band’s latest additions, Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA, and former SOILWORK drummer Dirk Verbeuren: “Well, these guys are some of the best at what they do in the business, so it’s really made me re-evaluate my playing. And usually I would not warm up before I would go out and play, because I know what I’m doing, and it’s kind of like… I’m just a natural at it; for whatever reason, God blessed me with this gift. And seeing them now, they’re just so fierce, it makes me wanna be the best I can be at what I do. Even if I am self-taught, even if it is something that I just was born with, I wanna be the best I can at it.”
He continued: “You know, after I had the surgery on my neck, when my neck [was] broken, I had a plate stuck in my neck and it touched my vocal box so my voice changed, and it’s made it so that my voice is a little lower. And that’s kind of a bummer, because a lot of songs in the past we had to just skip because the register was so high. But with working through it and exercising and practicing and warming up and stuff like that, I’ve been able to return a lot of my vocal range, and that’s been good for us, because we’ve been able to have more songs [to choose from].”
