When it comes to lineups, this one’s pretty rough.
Dave Mustaine’s own Gigantour returns this year with Megadeth headlining. That’s fine. But then you read the rest of the lineup, and you can’t help but shrug.
Device, David Draiman’s new band, is playing, along with Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, Newsted, HellYeah, and a band Mustaine’s son manages, Death Division.
Dates for this traveling circus of buffoonery follow at the end of this post.
You gotta feel bad for Death Division.
This is a big opportunity, but everyone knows they only got it because Dave’s kid is affiliated with them.
