Megadeth to play The Grove of Anahiem Next Weds

After 2002 when Dave Mustaine broke up Megadeth due to his weirdo arm-injury nerve-thing, nobody suspected he would make a roaring comeback with two new albums debuting at #18 and then #8, and now they'll be coming to the Grove of Anaheim on Sept. 12th with their "Tour of Duty".

If you don't know much about Megadeth, let me tell you that they are thrash metal legends. Some say they are part of the "Big 4 of Thrash Metal" alongside such greats as Anthrax, Metallica, and Slayer. Basically Megadeth is the band Dave Mustaine formed when Metallica gave him the boot back in the early 80's. Dave Mustaine is a little nuts too, having gone through 18 band members over the years, and remaining as the only original member. But despite all the behind the scenes drama, substance abuse, and health problems, Megadeth is back as core as they ever wear.
