Slayer.   Megadeth.   Two names synonymous with fierce, crunching power.   Two bands whose histories are inevitably intertwined in defining the thrash/metal genre.   Individually, their respective prowess and accomplishments are impressive; but together, they’re brutal and unstoppable.   Megadeth and Slayer will join forces to co-headline “American Carnage,” the most blistering, the most explosive, and the most eagerly-antcipated mega-tour of the winter – and you do not want to miss it.

“American Carnage” will kick off on January 18 in Seattle, WA for a 26-date trek across North America that will include the six Canadian dates postponed earlier this month.   Tickets for most shows go on sale this Friday, November 20.   Ticketmaster is offering a special presage for most shows from Wednesday, November 18 at 10AM until Thursday, November 19 at 10PM.
