Metallica And Megadeth To Tour In 2005

Metallica are said to be confirmed for a tour in 2005 with Megadeth, Kreator, In Flames, and Bleeding Through as the opening act. Despite past fueds between Metallica and Dave Mustaine all seems to be working out between them now. When approached about this tour James Hetfield had this to say in response:

“All of us here in ‘Tallica are VERY excited about this tour, it will be bringing some of the greatest bands out from the old-school scene together and some new school as well! It will also bring a lot more variety of different crowds to our shows. The thing with Dave(Mustaine) is in the past now, we have all reconciled our differences and moved on. We’re really looking forward to this kick ass tour man! We better see you all out there supporting ‘Tallica and the rest of the guys at all the shows!”

Also, Dave Mustaine had this to say in response to being asked about this tour as well:

“Hey droogies, I have been working on my relationship with all of the guys from Metallica for a few years now. Finally after about 20 years I will be joining them out on tour again. This time with Megadeth instead of playing for Metallica. I am really excited about this tour it has some very talented bands on it, 3 distinguished bands in the metal scene and 2 up-and-coming artists you all will love. I know this may seem far-fetched but it is true, I couldn’t be any happier this tour is going down. I’m sure the tour dates for this tour will be announced by the time this gets out to the press. I hope to see everyone at the venues and am looking forward to hanging out with all of you as well.”

I'd hate Megadeth if this is true. Metallica are the biggest sellouts in history.
