ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY are among the confirmed bands for MEGADETH's first-ever Megacruise. The NCL Jewel will set sail on October 13, 2019 from Los Angeles, California and hit ports of San Diego, California and Ensenada, Mexico before returning on October 18, 2019.
MEGADETH leader Dave Mustaine told Full Metal Jackie's nationally syndicated radio show about next year's Megacruise: "It's gonna start in Long Beach and we're gonna cruise out to Catalina and then go down to Mexico and turn around, head back up to San Diego. And I think we're gonna stop in San Diego. We may return up to Long Beach, but I think San Diego's gonna be where the cruise is gonna end for us."
He continued: "We've got a lot of really great bands that we've planned. One I'm super excited about is ARMORED SAINT. I've always been a fan of ARMORED SAINT. Of course, they're not headlining — there's several other bands that are above them on the bill — but they're there. And I like ARMORED SAINT a lot. I like the Sandoval brothers and love Joey [Vera]. So, I think it's gonna be fun. And that's what we wanted — we wanted something that people would stop thinking about, 'How do we have the most successful this?', and, 'How do we make the most money that?' Well, how about you treat the fans with dignity and respect and you give them their money's worth, you know?"
