Metalheads rejoice: North America's biggest thrash tour in 20 years is announced, as 1991's original American "Clash of the Titans" lineup – Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax - will tour together once again on Leg Two of the American Carnage Tour. This trek kicks off September 24 at Verizon Wireless Theatre in Dallas, TX and will play 20 dates, including New York's Nassau Coliseum, concluding at Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on October 21. Now the only possible bigger tour will inevitably be when all of the "Big Four" take their European Tour back to the United States.

On Leg Two of American Carnage, Megadeth will continue to roar through its landmark 1990 album Rust in Peace from front to back, while Slayer will rip the roof off by performing its much-lauded Seasons in the Abyss album, which was also released in 1990. Anthrax recently welcomed back singer Joey Belladonna, who defined the band during their prime, and now permanently back in the band, will be front-and-center. Belladonna will be on their upcoming album: "Worship Music" which has no official release date as of today.

The original “Clash of the Titans” tour united the three forces of thrash metal for the entire summer of 1991, with then-little known Alice in Chains serving as the opener. This tour, which falls under the “American Carnage” banner, isn’t rewriting history; it’s writing a whole new chapter of headbanging history that is sure to delight fans new and old. It is still unknown if Alice In Chains will perform as the opening act. Tour dates as followed:

September 24 Verizon Wireless Theatre, Dallas, TX*
September 25 AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX*
September 26 Verizon Wireless Theatre, Houston, TX*
September 28 Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, LA*
September 30 Civic Coliseum, Knoxville, TN

The ticket prices are pretty high for just Megadave and Slayer ($95.00 ea). I can't imagine what they'll jack it to with Anthrax or AIC.

This is probably one of the best things that has ever happened. Ever.

If metallica joined, it would probably weaken the lineup.

Meh, as I said earlier not the biggest Anthrax fan, I would rather see Testament...and whoa would this mean they're taking Testament or Machine Head off the second leg of the tour? With Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax, there isn't going to be much extra stage time for Machine Head AND Testament.

lol I remember before this show was rescheduled 10 f***ing times Suicide Silence was supposed to open, now look at the line up. :P

^ Did you see Anthrax at Soundwave Festival?

I've seen these bands about 2-3 times each , and the only ones that still sound good is Megadeth.

Slayer are starting to sound stale to me.
