Megadeth Launching 2014 World Tour in April
Megadeth have officially announced details of their upcoming world tour, set to kick off on April 12 in San Diego and stretch across three continents over four months.

The mentioned April 12 performance marks frontman Dave Mustaine's appearance with the San Diego Symphony, after which the band will continue touring in the US, South America and ultimately hit Europe with June 6 show in Sweden. Make sure to check out the full itinerary below.

As the official press release reads, Dave seems quite excited about the symphony gig. "I love the challenge," he said. "I really admire this genre of music because of the level of skill required and there are great dark undertones in these incredible pieces. The marriage of two such distinctly different genres is one thing, but cross-pollinating different societies is a whole new level of badass!

"I'm used to them being before me, but it's a bit unnerving to know so many talented eyes will be on my back," Mustaine continued. "It's a bit intimidating, and to be given the opportunity to interpret these melodies - to meld what I am best at with what they incredibly present, it is a great honor."
