Megadeth plot one-stop London visit

Gigs & Festivals

Megadeth

Hear ye, metal disciples, for it has been decreed that Megadeth will stop at London’s Electric Ballroom for a post-Download live date. The band, who are due to play the Donington rock festival on Sunday 10 Jun, will visit the venue on 12 Jun in continued honour of their 2011 long player, ‘Th1rt3en’.

With this year’s Download giving over its main stage to the legacy of Jim Marshall, Megadeth’s Electric Ballroom show will also be staged in tribute to the late amp mastermind.

Says the band’s Dave Mustaine: “It will be great to play for some of our oldest and dearest Londoner friends, but more importantly, I would like to dedicate this show to the memory of my dear friend, Dr Jim Marshall OBE”.
