Originally announced for 2020, The Metal Tour of the Year was moved to 2021 where it played 29 cities for 172,000 metal fans. The second leg of the tour will visit 23 more cities in 2022.
“It was great to get out on the road for an incredible tour last summer with Megadeth, Trivium and Hatebreed so we figured we’d do it again!” said Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe. “We look forward to hitting new cities with Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames, who we’re happy to have over for leg 2!”
Fueled by Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine’s return to the stage following his diagnosis and recovery of throat cancer, last year’s tour was Megadeth’s first in North America since 2017.
“The Metal Tour Of The Year was one of the strongest, most incredible Metal tours in ages – it’s namesake nothing but accurate,” said Trivium’s Matthew Kiichi Heafy. “How do you follow that up? By doing it again – even bigger, even better, and have it play everywhere it didn’t on the first leg. MTOTYII – let’s do this.”
