Ever wonder what it would be like to be on tour with Megadeth?
Well, bassist David Ellefson is now giving fans a little taste, having recently released a behind-the-scenes video of the band preparing for their upcoming Gigantour.
The excitement is the air is pretty clear as Ellefson walks the camera backstage while Megadeth and its crew rehearse for the tour’s kickoff show in Gilford, NH tonight (July 3). As the rocker pans out into the venue’s empty pavilion, he promises “This is only the beginning.”
Dave Mustaine and Megadeth are touring in support of their latest album Super Collider, and Mustaine has handpicked the lineup for this string of concerts, with bands such as Device, Hellyeah, Black Label Society, Newsted and Death Division all appearing on the bill.
Toted by Dave Mustaine as “the metal festival of the summer,” the tour will hit 26 stops throughout North America from now through August 11.
