Megadeth will continue to tour in 2024 promoting their most recent album “The Sick, The Dying… and the Dead” and they just announced shows in Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador and Mexico next April. There is still no information if the band’s guitarist Kiko Loureiro will be part of those shows since he is still not touring with the band due to personal matters.
“April of 2024 Megadeth returns to South America to support our latest record, ‘The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead!’, and I always get excited because there is something truly different about South America. I don’t know what it is… but whatever IT is, they come by it naturally. We are also planning a really big surprise for where ‘Aguante Megadeth’ all started in Buenos Aires, too! So… if you can, DO NOT MISS THAT SHOW!” Dave Mustaine said.
The band is currently formed by Dave Mustaine (Guitar and vocals), James LoMenzo (Bass), Kiko Loureiro (Guitar – Not touring) and Dirk Verbeuren (Drums).
These South American dates are the only one Megadeth announced so far. The only other show scheduled for 2024 will happen in July 27 at Hellfest in Clisson, France.
The Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro announced last June that he was taking a break from Megadeth to solve personal problems in Finland where he lives with his wife and kids. He recommended the guitarist Teemu Mäntysaari (Wintersun, Smackbound), who is now filling in for him while the band continues to tour.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
