Original Clash of the Titans lineup to tour: Anthrax joins Megadeth and Slayer on Leg Two of American Carnage Tour

The second metal concert I ever attended as a kid was the Clash of the Titans tour with Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer as triple headliners.  To this day it was one of the best metal concerts ever. Megadeth had just released Rust in Peace, Anthrax had released Persistence of Time and Slayer had released Seasons in the Abyss.

Now, the trio of bands is scheduled to tour once again on Leg Two of the American Carnage Tour. The second leg will kick off on September 24 at Verizon Wireless Theatre in Dallas, TX.  Megadeth will perform Rust in Peace from start to finish and Slayer will perform all of Seasons in the Abyss.  Plus, Anthrax recently welcomed back Joey Belladonna, the band’s original singer.

A special presale will launch this Wednesday, July 14, and fans should log onto to www.slayer.netwww.megadeth.com – or www.anthrax.com – to obtain the special code needed for the presale, and then go to www.ticketmaster.com (http://knoxvilletickets.com/ for the Knoxville date) to purchase tickets.  The public on sale date will begin July 23 in most markets. In the spirit of beating the recession, there will be special pre-sale discounts on all tickets in most markets (see below for more details), and, if that’s not enough, a limited amount of $10 tickets will be available in many cities – log onto any of the bands’ websites or onto Ticketmaster’s site for those details.

For Leg Two of the American Carnage tour, Megadeth has teamed up with iloveallaccess.com to provide fans with VIP experiences including priority venue access, meet and greets, parties, exclusive gifts and more.  Logging onto www.megadeth.com will provide those details.  Plus, fans who purchase their tickets online at either www.slayer.net or www.ticketmaster.com – will receive a free download of the live audio track “War Ensemble,” set to be included on Slayer’s forthcoming, as yet unannounced, “Live Intrusion” DVD release.

The first leg of American Carnage includes Megadeth, Slayer and Testament as co-headliners.  The first leg kicks off on August 11, after Canadian Carnage.
