Mustaine held the first Gigantour in 2005 as a showcase for metal bands and has hosted some of the biggest names in the business. This year’s lineup includes Mustaine’s own Megadeth, Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Jason Newsted’s new band Newsted and Death Division.

“This year’s power-packed lineup is probably the best Gigantour yet, and we’ve had some pretty massive Gigantours over the years. Gigantour 2013 brings four of my favorite bands, each centered around a superstar. With Zakk, David, Vinnie, and Jason there are going to be fans from Ozzy to Disturbed to Pantera to Metallica and everything that’s metal in-between! Don’t miss the metal festival of the summer!”
