The show, at K.K.’s Steel Mill venue in Wolverhampton, served as the opening night of Ellefson’s European tour with his solo band in support of their recent album Sleeping Giants, as well as the release of his recent memoir.
“I am very pleased to have been asked to perform a unique and special concert with Megadeth's David Ellefson to celebrate the release of his new book, More Life With Deth,” Downing had said when the event was announced.

“The concert will also bring about the opportunity to play again with some very dear and talented metal legends from the past," Downing added. "The combination of these icons will for sure enable us to deliver up one of the most exciting concerts this year, so much so that it would not be out of place to call this the ultimate ass-kicking 'MegaPriest' fest and is one that is not to be missed.”
