Megadeth have a huge tour planned in support of a forthcoming album, and they're bringing some friends along.

The Dave Mustaine-led group will tour in February and March 2016 with Suicidal Tendencies, Children of Bodom and Havok. Fans will recall that Children of Bodom appeared with Megadeth on 2008's Gigantour 3 in North America.

This new tour begins in Dallas before hitting Houston, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. A series of dates in Canada follow a pair of shows in Hawaii, before Megadeth then return for a string of U.S. stops that include a two-date stand in New York City, and concerts in Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago. Dates and cities are included below; visit for more details.

These are the first appearances since Megadeth rebuilt their lineup around Mustaine and David Ellefson earlier this year. Kiko Laureiro and Chris Adler (best known for his work with fellow Gigantour veterans Lamb of God) joined on guitar and drums, respectively.

After these concerts, Mustaine and company head overseas for previously announced European shows that include Donington in June. Both Adler and Loureiro are featured on Megadeth's upcoming follow-up to 2013's Super Collider, titled Dystopia.
