As news of the return of Gigantour becomes imminent, last year's fast and furious inaugural festival tour arrives in stores on deluxe 2-CD and 2-DVD sets August 22 and September 5, respectively, via Image Entertainment. Both configurations capture 2005's heavy metal onslaught that was hailed as the best metal bill of the year, with Revolver magazine calling it "the mother of all shred fests." Organized by MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine as a tour featuring "only bands whose musicianship matches their ability to melt faces with sheer volume and power" (Miami Herald), "Gigantour" features unforgettable performances by MEGADETH, DREAM THEATER and FEAR FACTORY as well as ANTHRAX (CD only), NEVERMORE, LIFE OF AGONY, SYMPHONY X, DRY KILL LOGIC and BOBAFLEX.

The "Gigantour" DVD set encompasses a special bonus disc with all the no-holds-barred offstage action: tour bus visits, backstage drama, practical jokes plus interviews with the people who make a national package tour happen, like tour managers, pyrotechnics experts and band members. The "Gigantour" CD contains three songs not included on the DVD.

"There are a few very successful tours out each summer and in order to be significant, I knew the first Gigantour had to make an impact with top bands,” says Mustaine. The six-week tour — with bands personally chosen by Mustaine — was designed to help bring like-minded hard rock fans together at a reasonable price, with most tickets in the $40 range. "I wanted to put together a festival that consisted of positive bands that play heavy music in a high-energy environment," Mustaine said in the July '05 Guitar World. "I think the variety of playing styles and the credibility of the different players is really exciting."

I can't freakin wait for gigantour. I'm on the edge of my seat eery day waiting for a lin up or tour dates.

This is also mainly for the retards who poasted about the blog of Megadeth going to RR. Hey. untill you get a band together, put out 10+ albums, play lead guitar/vox and kick Metallica's butts in the music world, yes, metallica, the "bets metal band ever", stop your whinnying. You all sit there and bash a band like megadeth, but with out them, some of the great metal abums of all time would not have been created. So stop your b****ing and get a band together yourself and see how much better you can do. f***ers. As much as I can assume, I bet you're all still trying ot learn your instruments.
