Gigantour 2013 Lineup Revealed
June 3, 2013 at 3:51 PM (PT)
GIGANTOUR, the critically acclaimed package festival founded in 2005 by MEGADETH's DAVE MUSTAINE, returns in 2013 with an incredible new lineup. In addition to headliner MEGADETH, the multi-artist bill features metal heavyweights BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, DEVICE, HELLYEAH, NEWSTED and DEATH DIVISION, all personally picked by MEGADETH frontman MUSTAINE.
MUSTAINE said, "This year's power-packed lineup is probably the best GIGANTOUR yet, and we've had some pretty massive GIGANTOUR's over the years. GIGANTOUR 2013 brings four of my favorite bands, each centered around a superstar. With ZAKK, DAVID, VINNIE and JASON there are going to be fans from OZZY to DISTURBED to PANTERA to METALLICA and everything that's metal in-between."
MUSTAINE founded the tour in 2005 and over the years has had established artists such as VOLBEAT, MOTORHEAD, ANTHRAX, FEAR FACTORY and DREAM THEATER, as well as giving (then) up-and-coming artists LACUNA COIL, INTO ETERNITY and SANCTITY their first break on a national festival tour. GIGANTOUR 2013 continues with this tradition.
GIGANTOUR 2013 will kick off on JULY 3rd in GILFORD, NH and wind its way through NORTH AMERICA, hitting cities throughout CANADA and the U.S., wrapping on AUGUST 11th in TORONTO, CANADA. Tickets are on sale now and check out www.gigantour.com for further details.
