Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine has issued the following statement regarding the set list for their upcoming "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour, which will feature former Megadeth bassist David Ellefson:

"Droogies! Happy Valentine's Day! I thought that Happy VD was a bit funny, but I really wanted to stop and take the time to thank you all for your support and especially thank all of the ticket holders for the RIP tour cities that have already sold-out. Rehearsals are all done and we are ready for pre-production next week, and then we will be heading out to start the tour. Please send your prayers, best wishes, and positive thoughts our way, and if we are playing in your city or town I sure hope to see you. A big thank you goes out to all of the cities that are sold-out already!

"Just so you know, we are playing 10 songs from over our 25+ year careers, as well as all 9 songs off of RIP.

"We are playing:
Set The World Afire
Wake Up Dead
In My Darkest Hour
Sweating Bullets
Skin O' My Teeth
Head Crusher
A Tout Le Monde
Symphony Of Destruction
Trust
Peace Sells, But Who's Buying?
(and all of RIP)

"One great thing is that we all know so many, many songs, and that this is just the starting point. Remember, David Ellefson knows everything of Megadeth's career, excluding a few new tracks, Shawn knows them all, and Chris is learning them as fast as he can. All in all, I think that we have approximately 40 songs we can do on this next month's tour. We will return to the Endgame Tour after that, and may play any of the RIP tracks over the coming years. We already play several songs off of RIP; Holy Wars, Take No Prisoners, Tornado Of Souls, and Hangar 18. It will be fun to have some new gems added to our set list, and also the possibility of us revisiting songs that I mentioned were added to our playlist for potential songs to perform from KIMB or PSBWB.

"I have to get going now to get to the studio to start mixing the new track that I have been working on. I am not sure if the party I am doing this for has said anything lately, because I have been in my studio 20,000 leagues under the sea, and haven't seen any news lately. I do know that we will be describing the track and the people who I wrote this for very soon. Have a great day today, and I hope that all of you and your nice red hearts are going to be pumping people all day today with love and kindness, especially for the people you love. Of course tomorrow, you can go back to hating their guts."

I know I am highly critical of the 'Staine around here, but...because I AM going to Testament no matter what!!!
I will say that this set list + rusty peace is about as good as anyone could ever want from them 'Deth boys....and I am very happy the elfman Jr is holding bown the four string fort once again (I hope it proves positive for him this time)

Symphony of Destruction, Trust, and A Tout le monde, and sweating bullets should be replaced with:

Hook in Mouth
train of consequences
Sleepwalker
Kick The chair

ya 'Crush, I meant to say 'the best we could hope to get" instead of 'want'...and you are right about 'Hook in Mouth' and 'Train...'

but I guess I'd leave 'symphony' and add 'ashes in your mouth"

Should still be pretty damn slick

Woo hoo!! I sent back my American Carnage tour ticket for a refund-this is going to be so much better!! Personally, I'd like to add Architecture of Aggression, Blood of Heroes and Sleepwalker to the setlist.
