A match made in metal heaven, Rob Zombie and Megadeth lap the speed of sound and spritz the air with dark intensity as they embark on their first co-headlining tour. Heavy-metal icon Rob Zombie ups the anarchic ante, blistering fans in a ferocious display that ding-dong ditches the gates of hell with turbocharged new songs and time-honored hits from his seminal outfit White Zombie. Since 1983, Dave Mustaine and the shredders of Megadeth have missed countless haircut appointments and become headbanging royalty due to their wall-shaking riffs, penchant for the apocalyptic, and ability to swallow folk balladeers without chewing. During a hypersonic performance, the band blitzes through classic cuts and aural tornadoes from its latest album, TH1RT3EN, which ruins turntable needles when it’s played backwards.
