Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium & In Flames announce 2nd leg of ‘The Metal Tour of the Year’

Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames will join forces for the just-announced round two of ‘The Metal Tour of the Year’ — see all confirmed dates below. With Hatebreed filling in for In Flames due to visa issues, the first leg of the metal outing took place in 2021 and included a stop at NY’s Jones Beach Theater (see our photos).

Here’s more info from a presser, “THE METAL TOUR OF THE YEAR was originally announced and planned for 2020 but was halted by the pandemic. Fans waited patiently for touring to return and in the summer of 2021 were granted their wish. THE METAL TOUR OF THE YEAR was one of the first national amphitheater tours to hit the road in 2021 and saw co-headliners MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD hit 29 cities across North America with special guests TRIVIUM and HATEBREED, who stepped in to replace IN FLAMES who couldn’t join the tour due to travel restrictions. The tour was met with enormous acclaim, truly living up to its name and playing to a whopping 172,000 metal fans in the process.

Megadeth’s mainman Dave Mustaine says, “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 singer Randy Blythe comments, “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 states, “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 Fridén concludes with, “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.
