Megadeth Rust in Peace Anniversary Tour

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Heavy metal fans were left disappointed by the recent cancellation of the much anticipated American Carnage joint tour by Megadeth and Slayer. This is the second cancellation from the co-headliners due to the medical problems of Slayer’s Tom Araya.
In the wake of the let down, American heavy metal thrashers, Megadeth, have announced a spring tour including supporting groups Testament and Exodus. The tour is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Megadeth’s platinum-selling fourth studio release, Rust in Peace. At the time, this was the band’s most commercially successful effort.
Megadeth has released twelve albums total. Their most recent album, End Game, was releaed in 2009. The album sold 45,000 copies in its first week, and debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 chart. The band has sold nearly twenty-five million albums worldwide, making them one of the most commerically successful heavy metal bands of all time.
Founding member, Dave Mustaine, takes the band on the road beginning March 1 in Spokane, Washington. Megadeth has also rescheduled the American Carnage tour with Slayer with dates planned for late summer.

Barenaked Ladies Tour Canada

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Ontario’s own, Barenaked Ladies, are touring across Canada to promote their newest album, All in Good Time, beginning April 6th in Victoria. The album is set to release in March of this year, and is the first album produced since the departure of band co-founder Steven Page in early 2009.

“This is a really important record for us and we’re really proud of it,” Band co-founder Ed Robertson said in a statement. “We’re redefining who we are, and how we communicate as a band, and as friends. The album has an emotional rawness to it that we may have shied away from in the past. We can’t wait to play these songs live.”

The Barenaked Ladies are known for their fun and quirky disposition, and energetic live shows. According to the remaining foursome, that hasn’t changed. In fact, the guys say that the new album has rekindled creative energy among them, and they are feeling as solid as ever.

You can listen to “You Run Away,” the first single from All in Good Time here.

Barenaked Ladies will begin their tour on April 6 in Victoria, and continue to play across Canada with the final show taking place in Oshawa, Ontario on May 1st. The band will also perform this month at the 2010 Olympic Victory Ceremonies at BC Place in Vancouver, BC.
