Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine had to reschedule the tour from 2017 to 2021 due to his diagnosis, battle with, and recovery from throat cancer. In a statement within a press release put out by the band (via Adrenaline PR), Mustaine says, "Can you hear that sound of armies on the march – of destruction on the horizon? That's this tour, coming for you. We cannot wait to return to the stage, and I promise you you do NOT want to miss these shows. You're not going to know what hit you!" Megadeth is set to release their 16th studio album later this year.

Meanwhile, Lamb of God's self-titled album became one of the top-selling metal albums of last year. This tour will mark the band's first appearance in concerts since the release of that album. This tour will kick off on August 20th in Austin, Texas, and end in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, on October 2nd.
