David Ellefson Says They Are Optimistic About The Megadeth Tour In The Summer Of 2021
Megadeth bassist David Ellefson opened up about the upcoming tour which also will include Lamb of God, Trivium, and In Flames during an appearance on a live chat with ‘Talkulture’ on Twitch, Ellefson stated that the tour has a new schedule and will turn out great.
As many of you remember, Megadeth originally planned a tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and In Flames which was supposed to start on June 12, 2020, however, just like every other tour, concert, and live event, it was postponed to 2021.
The bands even made a live stream event in June 2020, that included pre-recorded concerts from previous shows in order to make up for their canceled tour. The streaming event consisted of the secret show from 2016’s Saint Vitus Bar, Lamb of God’s surprise show at House of Vans Chicago, Trivium’s 2019 set at DreamHack Dallas, and In Flames’ 2019 set from their own Borgholm Brinner festival.
Since they postponed the tour dates to an unknown time, fans have been dying to know if the tour can happen, and when, during a recent interview, David Ellefson answer all of the questions. Apparently, now that the concert dates are settled and brand new tickets are available, Ellefson is looking forward to hitting the road this summer and has high hopes for the tour as he expects everything to turn out great.
Here is what Ellefson said:
“There’s a new Megadeth album being finished up. We have a big tour this summer — Megadeth, Lamp of God, Trivium, and In Flames. Live Nation just put out an announcement, I think Tuesday, saying all concerts are a go, ‘We’re gonna stay open,’ ‘Everything’s gonna be great.’ So, per that, hopefully, we’ll see everybody on tour this summer. So let’s hope that happens. Optimistic, and hopefully it keeps things going. It was rescheduled from last summer, so it’d be great if we could just get out and get rocking. So, looking forward to seeing everybody out there.”
