Legendary heavy metal band Megadeth to tour Malaysia in May

One of the world’s top heavy metal bands credited with popularizing the genre, Megadeth, is finally coming to Malaysia with their “DYSTOPIA” World Tour.

After a much-anticipated wait, Megadeth’s debut performance in Kuala Lumpur – organised by IME Malaysia – will see the band rock Stadium Negara on Thursday, 4th May 2017 at 8pm.

Founded in 1983, Megadeth virtually gave birth to a genre when their debut release became recognized as the Greatest Thrash Metal Debut Album of All Time.

The tour is in support of their latest album Dystopia, their first album in 3 years and their fifteenth album to date. Rock critics and fans around the world are hailing Dystopia as a triumphant return from one of the most important bands in the scene.

The album earned a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance of 2017. With 49,000 units sold in its first week of release, Dystopia took the no. 3 spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart alongside Adele and Justin Bieber. It’s the highest charting album for the band since 1992’s Countdown to Extinction which peaked at No. 2 on the chart. Dystopia was listed as one of the 20 Best Metal Albums of 2016 by Rolling Stone magazine.
