Megadeth ’s traveling Gigantour festival returns this summer, and the band is taking some metal heavyweights along with them.  In addition to a headlining set by Megadeth, the event will feature performances by Device , Newsted , Black Label Society , HELLYEAH , and Death Division .

“This year’s power-packed lineup is probably the best Gigantour yet, and we’ve had some pretty massive Gigantours over the years,” said Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine .  “Gigantour 2013 brings four of my favorite bands…there are going to be fans from Ozzy [ Osbourne ] to Disturbed to Pantera to Metallica and everything that’s metal in-between!  Don’t miss the metal festival of the summer!”

The North American trek kicks off on July 3 at Meadowbrook in Gilford, NH, and will make stops in Chicago, Dallas, Denver and New York, among other cities.  Pre-sale tickets for the concerts will be available at Gigantour.com on May 9.  Remaining tickets will be available the next day.
