MEGADETH PERFORMS WITH LOMENZO

MEGADETH   played its first show with bassist   James LoMenzo   in nearly 12 years last night (Friday, August 20) in Austin, Texas. The opening concert of   "The Metal Tour Of The Year"   at the Germania Insurance Amphitheater saw   MEGADETH   share the stage with co-headliners   LAMB OF GOD , along with   TRIVIUM   and   HATEBREED .

MEGADETH 's setlist was as follows:

01.   Hangar 18
02.   The Threat Is Real
03.   Tornado Of Souls
04.   Sweating Bullets
05.   Trust
06.   Conquer Or Die!
07.   Dystopia
08.   Symphony Of Destruction
09.   Peace Sells
10.   Mechanix
11.   Holy Wars... The Punishment Due

Produced by   Live Nation , the rescheduled trek will hit a further 27 cities before wrapping in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada on Saturday, October 2.

LoMenzo   joined   MEGADETH   in 2006 and appeared on two of the group's studio albums, 2007's   "United Abominations"   and 2009's   "Endgame" . He was fired from the band in 2010 and replaced with returning original   MEGADETH   bassist   David Ellefson .

In addition to   MEGADETH ,   LoMenzo   has played with   Ozzy Osbourne ,   Zakk Wylde   and   WHITE LION . For the past eight years,   LoMenzo   has been performing with iconic rocker   John Fogerty .

MEGADETH   leader   Dave Mustaine   has yet to reveal who played bass on the band's new album after   Ellefson 's tracks were removed from the LP following his dismissal from the group in late May.

Ellefson   laid down his bass tracks on   MEGADETH 's sixteenth LP in May 2020 at a studio in Nashville, Tennessee.

In July,   Mustaine   announced during an episode of his   Gimme Radio   program   "The Dave Mustaine Show"   that   Ellefson 's bass tracks would not be used on the new   MEGADETH   LP.

In early May, on the same day that sexually tinged messages and explicit video footage involving   Ellefson   were posted on   Twitter , he released a statement on   Instagram   denying all social media chatter that he "groomed" an underage fan.

On May 24,   Mustaine   — who formed   MEGADETH   with   Ellefson   in 1983 — announced the bassist's departure from the band.

Ellefson   was in   MEGADETH   from the band's inception in 1983 to 2002, and again from 2010 until his latest departure.
