Megadeth coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg
Given all the health problems Dave Mustaine has endured over the years, you have to wonder: Just how much longer can Megadeth keep touring?
It's been a few years since the metal legends have performed in Tampa Bay, so you might want to take advantage of their new "Super Collider Tour," which will arrive at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Dec. 8.
Tickets are $35-$40 and they'll go on sale Friday. But if you're a Mustaine megafan, you may want to splurge for the $650 "Ultimate Guitar Meet & Greet Package," which includes a signed VMNT Dean Guitar, entry to a pre-show VIP party and meet & greet, exclusive merchandise (including a gold-plated Megadeth ring!) and a "dedicated on-site VIP host." So freaking metal! Click here for tickets.
That's shaping up to be a busy weekend in St. Petersburg, with Alabama Shakes at Jannus on Dec. 6, 97X Next Big Thing in Vinoy Park on Dec. 7, and now Megadeth on Dec. 8. If you live downtown, invest in some earplugs.
