Following the enormous success of their 2021 co-headline US tour, metal titans Megadeth and Lamb Of God have today announced the second US run of their aptly named Metal Tour Of The Year

Joining them will be special guests Trivium and In Flames.

Tickets for the second leg of The Metal Tour Of The Year, produced by Live Nation, will go on general sale at 10am local time on Friday, January 14 from MetalTourOfTheYear.com.


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 tour was one of the first national amphitheatre 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. 


Speaking on the success of the initial leg of the tour and his excitement in hitting the road again in 2022, Megadeth’s leader and frontman, 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.”

Randy Blythe, inimitable frontman of Lamb Of God, adds “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!”
