Sidewave Latest: Megadeth set to collide with Volbeat and Newsted

Sideshows are their business, etc etc...

Get ready for the monstrous roar of multi-platinum, heavy metal legends Megadeth as they hit the stage up close and personal in Sydney and Melbourne! The nasty snarl is back, Dave is back and he is bringing 2 of Metal’s finest exponents with him for two blistering Sidewaves.

Long suffering fans can now rejoice! For the first time ever Volbeat will be touring Australia as part of the massive Soundwave 2014 bill. Since forming in Copenhagen in 2000, Volbeat has been one of the most talked about bands around the world distilling the rebel spirits of metal, rockabilly, country & western and rock’n’roll into a gas-guzzling beast of a sound!

The pursuit of heaviness has fuelled Jason Newsted for over 30 years. As an integral component of Metallica, Flotsam and Jetsam, Voivod, Ozzy Osbourne’s touring band, and countless other fan and critical favourites, he’s among the metal world’s most fearless adventurers. Now, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and six-time Grammy winner is charting new territory—for the first time fronting his own band, the explosive power quartet Newsted.  Newsted’s debut full-length, Heavy Metal Music, is short on pretence and long on crushing riffs and had Kerrang!  exclaiming that “it's a visceral, straightforward assault.”
