A few months ago, Dave Mustaine teased that Megadeth would be opening for a band they've never opened before on a big tour. With rumors of a Megadeth, Meshuggah, Tesseract tour, we thought that was it. But we were wrong.
LA radio station 93.1 Jack FM just revealed the tour – Megadeth will be opening for the legendary Scorpions this fall. The LA show will happen at the Forum on Saturday, October 7. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am, with a pre-sale on Thursday with the password being "crazy."
It's crazy to think Megadeth are the young guns on this tour, but they are just that. Scorpions have been rocking the world over for 50 years now, and they have their die-hards, and maybe Megadeth is hoping to refresh those die-hards' memories about why they should be interested. It makes sense to me.
We'll keep you posted with more dates as we get them.
