Slayer, Megadeth To Co-Headline "American Carnage" Tour with Testament as Special Guests

Band Photo: Slayer (?)

Megadeth and Slayer will join forces to co-headline "American Carnage" across North America this winter. "American Carnage" will kick off on January 18 in Seattle, WA for a 26-date trek across North America that will include the six Canadian dates postponed earlier this month. Tickets for most shows go on sale this Friday, November 20. Ticketmaster is offering a special presage for most shows from Wednesday, November 18 at 10AM until Thursday, November 19 at 10PM.

"American Carnage" is the first time that Slayer and Megadeth will have toured the U.S. together since 1991's epic "Clash of the Titans" tour. To celebrate that, and in recognition of the tough economic times that many of their fans are having, Megadeth and Slayer have decided to roll back the price of a chunk of tickets at every U.S. show to the "1991 price" of $10.00. These specially-priced tickets will be limited and when they're gone, they're gone. Megadeth has also teamed with iloveallaccess.com to provide an Ultimate Fan Package including premium seats, meet and greets, pre-show parties and more.

In addition, Testament, who was also on the '91 "Clash of the Titans" bill, will be special guests on the entire tour, marking the first time that all three bands have shared a stage together in more than 18 years, and making this a "must see" metal event.

Both Megadeth and Slayer will hit the road supporting new albums: Megadeth's 2009 album, "Endgame," and Slayer's "World Painted Blood," the band's 10th studio venture, which hit stores November 3. Testament's "The Formation of Damnation: Special Tour Edition," will be released on February 23, 2010 with special unreleased bonus tracks.

Slayer and Megadeth have already massacred territories together outside of the U.S., first with four explosive dates in June 2009 across Western Canada - "Canadian Carnage" - marking the first time the bands had shared a stage anywhere in 18 years; and then six co-headlining "Carnage" dates in Australia followed in October.

Slayer and Megadeth are also rescheduling the east coast leg of the "Canadian Carnage" tour, postponed from this fall.

A video announcement of the "American Carnage" tour has been posted:

....All of three bands have been around close to 20 years, I'll agree with the over played part, but isn't that the best era of Metallica??
You should've stopped after your first statement. Personally I'd rather have Metallica there instead of Megadeth, but good tour none the less.

This is a f***in omen or whatever. I just saw Megadeth rip it up last night with Machine Head and Suicide Silence, and now this. It seems that Kerry King and Dave Mustaine are starting to bury the hatchet a little bit which is great, if only Vinnie Paul and Phil Anselmo would do the same. Can't wait for February 5th in Chicago. Hopefully there's no one else playing so that all three bands gets a long setlist. STAY METAL MY FRIENDS!

to noj - i hate when people say that. Camden is NOT considered in PA, and none of its venues are either. Bands just always say "Whats up Jersey and Philly!" because they know there's a lot of philly people there considering you can see the city over the water from the stage and the lawn. Thats like saying "Oh i was at the Slayer show in Camden last night...i stood on a boat dock in Philly with binoculars and watched it!" Just because you can see something in the distance over a river, doesn't mean your there. Anyway, can't wait for this tour to come to Jersey. I'm there February 13th!

I was proud to have planned my vacation around flying to Calgary & seein Megadeth & Slayer & Machine Head on the 1st leg of the Canadian Carnage tour in July.

After the tour finished its run of western Canada they had a bunch of eastern canadian dates that were set for November, which had to be cancelled due to I believe it was Tom needing emergency back surgery, so all those Canadian dates are just the rescheduled dates of the previous tour.

"Thank god Metallica isn't on this tour... We get a full night of genuine metal that isn't 20 years old and overplayed!"

Since when has Metallica and Megadeth ever toured together? Never and they never will. If you knew your metal history at all you'd know Dave Mustaine was kicked out of Metallica before they made it big. This fact is like common sense for any core Metallica or Megadeth fan.

"Personally I'd rather have Metallica there instead of Megadeth, but good tour none the less."

Ah, the topic of Metallica vs. Megadeth. Most people are one sided and say one is better then the other. I like to be analytical. Personally, as a band I think Metallica plays better music, preferably Kill em All to And Justice for all. They pretty much saved and revolutionized metal in the 80's. But what most people fail to realize is that Dave Mustaine help co-write songs on Kill Em All and even created some of the riffs in Ride the Lightning and even Master of puppets. He had a huge part in Metallica and personally I don't think Metallica would sound the way they do if it wasn't for Mustaine, preferably in there early albums. So when I hear people say Metallica is better then Megadeth, I half-way agree, Metallica has made better music then Mustaine, but in my opinion Mustaine IS Metallica. So it's almost contradicting saying Metallica is better then Megadeth. Megadeth has always been considered as the band "who's trying to play like Metallica and be better then them". Over all Metallica's music is better then Megadeth but as of today, personally I think Megadeth is in the lead. When you compare St. Anger/Death Magnetic to United Abominations/End Game, Megadeth clearly in my opinion is becoming the better band.

I stand corrected, they did share the stage in the 90's. Which is crazy after hearing videos of what Dave Mustaine has to say about Metallica. Probably will never happen again and if it does I'll be there in a heartbeat since there my 2 top favorite bands of all time. Anyways this tour sounds like it will be great for any metal fan. I'm just now workin my way into the "Death Metal" scene so being able to tolerate the vocals of Slayer will make this concert even more better. Always been a big fan of Megadeth and this will be the 2nd time I'll see em in concert. I just wanna know the meaning of this "Co-Headline". Be interesting to know who's gonna play last, or if they're gonna switch off at different venues. Would be pretty epic if they shared the stage switching off songs or even more epic, play each others. I'm guessing that this won't happen, lol.

and what other people fail to realize is we know the history of metallica and megadave (sorry blindgreed i love it) more than we know our own history...why break it down anymore and shame on you for having to tolerate arayas vox!!! really though if you have a hard time getting into the vox try this little thing i used to help people get over their fear of araya..(i swear this works) ok start off with 1.) dead skin mask 2.) Disciple 3.) bloodline 4.) Fleshstorm 5.) seasons in the abyss.... i know these re not the best ones to the diehards but i swear on my sweet a$$ schecter c-7 hellraiser these will help the pain and in 2-3 days you should be a slayer fan ready and willing to listen to every slayer album all the way through.. if that doesnt work you can always shoot yourself if the face then slayer wont seem so bad but remeber to have fun!!!! *disclaimer* supastan is not a real doctor and is not responsible for well just isnt resonsible at all any advice taken from supastan is your own damn fault shooting ones self in the face will probably make slayer worse for you because you dont have a face and tom is still screaming at you and you cant find the stop button...

Supastan: No apology needed my friend, use it freely wherever you go! IMO, it ceased to be Megadeth with the firing of Elefson.

And yes i knew that Lombardo has been back with Slayer for a longtime .. But to be honest i never really cared for Megadeth!! Ive been Metal since 1985 !! Dont get me wrong The musicianship has always been great..
Dave just sounds like Popeye to me .. It seemed like there where so many more great Thrash bands back than that i kinda swept the whole Megadeth Bandwagon thing under the carpet ..

------------------------------------------------------------------

So what!? TESTAMENT is on the bill, way more interesting, together with Slayer and Exodus one of the few bands who stayed tru to their roots and to their original fans who helped them get so far in the first place. f*** metallica. (although i think their first 4 albums are incredible and I still listen to them with much pleasure)

And on the Metallica topic, I don't know if they would be into the idea of those $10 tix prices. Who knows, Lars might be needing a bigger pool for all those laser sharks.

Enough about Metallica !!! They have nothing to do with this topic !! Ofcourse they sell more tickets !! And They hung up the Metal Axe a longtime ago to do so..
They comprimized theyre roots so that they would appeal to a larger TOP 40 UN-METAL audience!! Now go back to metal school and learn somthing from SLAYER !!!
and please SHUT UP!!!

SELLOUTLICA (Metallica) = NOT METAL. Don't ever bring up those mainstream, poppy, sell-out fags in this chat area. They'll never be on the same level as these three bands. They stopped make music in '86.

Metallicas first albums up until 1990 were f***ing awesome yet the black album and anything after was garbage. They didn't stay true to their roots unlike megadeth and slayer. They R still one of my favorites but would not be a good fit for this tour

ok listen...im really tired of Metallica in every conversation whenever any of the big thrash bands. Honestly i like Megadeth more than Metallica because Megadeth is more musically talented. They focus their writing on heavy riffs and amazing transitions. DONT get me wrong i still love Metallica and ill jam out anytime when One or Enter Sandman comes on the radio or when i decide to listen to Leper Messiah or Disposable Heroes or Fight Fire With Fire. I hate the fact that Metallica and Megadeth have to cut the thrash metal fan base in half and see who picks which band. THERE BOTH GREAT BANDS IN THERE OWN DIFFERENT WAY AND ALL OF WHO PEOPLE WHO ARE FIGHTING OVER THIS STOP AND APPRECIATE BOTH BANDS BEFORE THEY RETIRE! I got tickets to Izod...f*** yeah this is gunna be on helluva amazing show
