MEGADETH's SHAWN DROVER: Second 'Endgame' Tour Blog Entry Available

MEGADETH drummer Shawn Drover has posted the second of four tour blogs on the Sick Drummer Magazine web site from the band's current "Endgame" U.S. tour.

The blogs will talk about life on the road for Shawn and the kinds of things he deals with.

The second post covers week two of the tour with MACHINE HEAD, SUICIDE SILENCE and ARCANIUM and includes details of shows from Richmond, Knoxville, Charlotte, Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando..

Drover recently falsely denied that MEGADETH will join forces with SLAYER and TESTAMENT for a U.S. tour in January/February 2010. Dubbed "American Carnage", the trek will kick off on January 18 in Seattle, Washington for a 26-date jaunt across North America that will include the six Canadian dates postponed earlier this month.

With the "Megadeth Ultimate Fan" package you can enjoy an up-close ticket, a meet-and-greet and photo op with MEGADETH, early access to the venue, pre-show party, exclusive MEGADETH gifts and more!

"American Carnage" is the first time that SLAYER and MEGADETH will have toured the U.S. together since 1991's epic "Clash of the Titans" tour. To celebrate that and in recognition of the tough economic times that many of their fans are having, MEGADETH and SLAYER have decided to roll back the price of a chunk of tickets at every U.S. show to the "1991 price" of $10.00. These specially-priced tickets will be limited and when they're gone, they're gone.

In addition, TESTAMENT — who was also on the "Clash of the Titans" bill — will be special guests on the entire tour, marking the first time that all three bands have shared a stage together in more than 18 years, and making this a "must see" metal event.

SLAYER and MEGADETH have already massacred territories together outside of the U.S. — first with four explosive dates in June, 2009 across Western Canada - "Canadian Carnage" — marking the first time the bands had shared a stage anywhere in 18 years; and then six co-headlining "Carnage" dates in Australia followed in October.
