Gigantour, featuring Megadeth, Motörhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil, Tour Dates Announced
Megadeth, who released new album, Th1rt3en, today, have announced the tour dates for their Gigantour, which also features Motörhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil. It kicks off on January 26 in Camden, New Jersey, and will run through February 28, ending in Denver. The full dates are below.
Motörhead frontman, Lemmy Kilmister, spoke of his excitement gearing up for the tour.
“We’ve done festivals in Europe with Lacuna Coil and they’re workaholics as well!” Lemmy stated. “Volbeat are great too; the whole bill is pretty diverse and I advise everyone who likes being deaf, and/or can lip-read already, to come out and see what the stuff that doesn’t get any MTV Video Awards sounds like! Gigantour is just that!”
Volbeat vocalist-guitarist Michael Poulsen explained that the tour presented an unmissable opportunity.
“This is something you don’t think twice about; it’s a must and a blessing,” Poulsen said. “They [Megadeth and Motörhead] are two of the world’s biggest/best and most important bands in heavy rock history. Since the beginning, Megadeth and Motörhead have been a huge inspiration of my/our musical careers. To have the opportunity to go on the road and share the stage with these two legendary rock bands, is another dream come true in the Volbeat adventure. We are very thankful and cannot wait to play in front of these two legendary bands’ audience for some intense minutes of Volbeat rock!”
Cristina Scabbia, vocalist for Lacuna Coil, who are returning for their second Gigantour, also spoke of her excitement.
“WOW! Gigantour! I am super excited!!” Scabbia exclaimed. “I mean are you kidding me? A tour with Megadeth, Motörhead, Vollbeat and us? This is going to be so crushing that I think the walls are gonna fall down in some of the venues!! Are you guys ready? I definitely am!”
