MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has confirmed that James LoMenzo will play bass for the iconic thrash band for the second U.S. leg of “The Metal Tour Of The Year” which commences in April.
As previously announced, co-headliners for the tour will be LAMB OF GOD along with special guests TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES.
Yesterday, Mustaine wished Lomenzo a happy 63rd birthday via hi social media, including the following mesage: “With ‘The Metal Tour Of The Year’ starting again soon, we’ll celebrate your birthday with the fans! Wishing you all the best, brother. @bassmonsterr”.
James LoMenzo initially joined the ranks of MEGADETH back in 2006, replacing David Ellefson, and appeared on two of the band’s studio albums, 2007’s “United Abominations” and 2009’s “Endgame”. In 2010 he was replaced with returning MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson. James made his return soon after Ellefson was fired from the group last year.
As of this point, Mustaine has yet to reveal who played bass on MEGADETH’s upcoming studio album after Ellefson’s tracks were removed from the effort.
