Dave McRobb
Megadeth's current lineup: Kiko Loureiro, Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson and Dirk Verbeuren.

After canceling a all their tour dates earlier this year due to singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine's throat cancer diagnosis, Megadeth are preparing to hit the road again for a European tour. The 2020 outing, which will be headlined by Five Finger Death Punch and also feature Bad Wolves, was announced on the Megadeathpunch site, which so far has only listed gigs in Helsinki and Stockholm, with the rest of the routing seemingly slated for announcement on Sept. 9. For now the other dates are painted over.

Though Megadeth put off their planned tour following Mustaine's cancer diagnosis, the one date they still have on the list is their Megacruise on the Norwegian Jewel, which will set sail between Oct. 13-18 and take Megafans from Los Angeles to San Diego and Ensenada. Megadeth have been working on their 16th album, which bassist David Ellefson said is due out ealry next year.

Earlier this week, Megadeth announced that their second beer, a Belgian-style saison ale, Saison 13, is due out in the U.S. next month.
