Megadeth ŽBlackmailŪ Canada

Published: 2004-10-25
One of the best known names in heavy metal is set to tour around the continent for the remaining months of the year. Los Angeles' Megadeth kicked off their 30-date jaunt across North America this Saturday (October 23rd), and won't stop until December 1st when they play Mexico City. Dubbed the "Blackmail The Universe Tour", it will see Megadeth perform in six different Canadian cities.

The thrash metal band is out supporting their latest full-length disc called 'The System Has Failed'. It was just put on shelves last month (September 14th to be exact), and contains 12 new tracks, with 11 written by Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine. In Canada the album has already made it to the Top 10 on the album charts.

'The System Has Failed' is Megadeth's first studio-album in three years; in 2001 the band released 'The World Needs a Hero'. The band's debut album came nearly twenty years ago, in 1985. 'Killing Is My Business÷And Business is Good!' was made after Mustaine left another heavy metal act that goes by the name of Metallica, and started his own band.

Megadeth's upcoming Canadian gigs:

November 14 Montreal, QC - Metropolis
November 16 Toronto, ON - Kool Haus
November 21 Winnipeg, MB - Burton Cummings Theatre
November 22 Regina, SK - Doris Knight Hall
November 23 Edmonton, AB - Red's
November 26 Vancouver, BC - Commodore Ballroom
