Heavy metal unleashes aggression in a safe and therapeutic way, unlike light metal, which is only good for covering casseroles and blowing up microwaves. Trade in your tinfoil for an anvil of rock with today’s GrouponLive deal to see Gigantour, featuring Megadeth with Motörhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil, at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton. For $43, you get one ticket for reserved seating in sections 112–115 on Wednesday, February 8, at 6:30 p.m. (up to a $72.25 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees).
Gigantour, the behemoth extravaganza of heavy metal founded by speed rockers Megadeth, returns from a three-year hiatus with an all-new lineup of hard-hitting legends hand-picked by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. Mustaine leads his frothing band of shredders like caffeinated jackrabbits through a bludgeoning set of classics and tracks from TH1RT3EN, the group's latest album and the universal password of satanic bakers. Riding shotgun and fully cocked, Lemmy and the bruisers of Motörhead crack skulls and renovate eardrums with blitzkrieg classics about playing cards, fisticuffs, and the merits of chewing ammunition. Other Megadeth-approved acts include Danish metal fiends Volbeat, who cook up molten tunes fit for a sixth grader’s exceptionally brutal science-fair volcano, and Italian goth metallurgists Laguna Coil.
