‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’ – featuring Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames – was forced to postpone its first leg of dates (spring through summer) due to the ongoing global pandemic.
Instead of kicking off their planned trek this Friday, June 12th, all the bands involved will take part in what is being called “a mammoth streaming event” beginning at 2pm PST/5pm EST/10pm BST/11pm CEST.
“The stream will be hosted by SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin and will feature full sets from Megadeth, Lamb Of God, Trivium and In Flames along with an exclusive interview with each band prior to the broadcast of their set,” reads the official description.
The event will see Megadeth streaming their 2016 secret show (aka the ‘Vic and the Rattleheads’ gig) from Saint Vitus in Brooklyn.
Lamb Of God will be streaming their surprise show from House of Vans in Chicago from February this year.
Trivium will be streaming their 2019 performance from DreamHack Dallas.
Lastly, In Flames will be streaming their 2019 headline set from their own festival ‘Borgholm Brinner’ in Sweden.
“In addition to the concert streams and exclusive interviews, The Metal Tour Of The Year will also launch a brand new merch store featuring new, exclusive tour items that will only be available for 72 hours,” the announcement continues to explain.
“A portion of the proceeds from the merch store will go to Crew Nation, Live Nation’s fund to help support live music crews who have been directly impacted as shows are put on pause due to COVID-19.”
Watch the stream AT THIS LOCATION.
