MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine made an appearance at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennesseee on Saturday, April 17 just prior to Nashville SC’s kick-off game of their 2021 MLS season against FC Cincinnati.
Mustaine was on hand to perform the ‘Gibson Guitar Riff’, which is a pregame ritual that sees different performers throughout the season get fans hyped by ripping some riffs on a customized Gibson guitar just prior to kickoff.
Yesterday, Mustaine shared a backstage photo of him taken at the game, and he included the following message :”Thank you @NashvilleSC for a great game and inviting me to perform on the Gibson NSC Riff Guitar to open your first match of the season.”
In February, Gibson officially announced a new partnership with Mustaine, who joined the company as a Brand Ambassador. The new Dave Mustaine Collection will span acoustic and electric guitars across Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer.
MEGADETH is currently working on their 16th studio album.
