Dave Mustaine has revealed in his latest TheLIVELine "audioblog" that Megadeth will play its classic 1990 album, "Rust In Peace," in its entirety on the upcoming tour of Mexico, Central America, and South America.

Mustaine comments: "We are so excited to be heading down to South America. We're gonna keep playing the 'Rust In Peace' record on our way down there. We haven't decided what we're gonna do in Europe yet because we feel that if we continue to do this, we're gonna distract ourselves from 'Endgame,' and also we're not gonna be able to play anything else BUT ['Rust In Peace'] in some situations if a festival [our allotted set time] is only 45 minutes."

Those lucky, lucky Latinos. I bet that'd be great to see. Maybe more bands will tour playing their best records.
