Megadeth and Lamb Of God are bringing the heat with their epic metal tour!
The metal giants brought their Metal Tour of the Year to BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey on September 15 for an unforgettable night of hard rocking fun. The tour, originally slated for Summer 2019, marked the return of Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, who took a brief break to battle throat cancer. And after a disappointing 2020, the highly-anticipated tour finally kicked off in Austin, TX back in August, bringing some of the biggest names in metal music together.
Joining the metal giants on the trek were Trivium as well as Hatebreed. In Flame were supposed to serve as support on the trek, however, due to international visa issues, they were unable to partake and Hatebreed took their place on the tour.
Welcoming concert goers into BB&T with their hard hitting music, Hatebreed kicked off the night to the delight of a capacity crowd of metal fans. Taking command of the stage next, Trivium brought an energy-filled set of radio hits that got fans into a state of frenzy.
Standing behind a black curtain with their signature logo shining brightly, Lamb of God began their set with their slow song, “Memento Mori.” With anticipation growing for close to 2 minutes, the curtain dropped to an explosion reviling the band to an eruption of cheers. The band went on to play many of their hit songs for an hour-long set and delighted fans with an amazing pyro filled set.
Ending the incredible evening was the legendary metal group, Megadeth. Playing with an intense concentration, the band got fans off their feet rocking out to hits such as “Symphony of Destruction,” “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due” and more. Though at times Mustaine’s voice sounded muddied, the crowd never gave up on Megadeth and found their footing as they moshed into the night.
The tour did manage to give metal fans what they have been waiting over a year for. A night with their favorite metal bands in a concert that overcame stiff odds.
