Head-banger rock fans will be happy to know that tickets go on sale this Friday for Gigantour, happening Feb. 20 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC).

The all-ages show will feature the band Megadeth, and songs from their thirteenth album, titled TH1RT3EN.

Metal groups Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil, will also be performing during the packaged concert series, first created by Megadeth front-man Dave Mustaine in 2005.

The event marks the re-launch of Gigantour since 2008.

The grouped show is a chance to tour with like-minded artists, and play heavy music in a high-energy environment, Mustaine said.

Megadeth has sold more than 25 million albums globally during their three-decade long career, and has received nine Grammy nominations.

Most recently, the group performed at Yankee Stadium for a show that included other rock heavy-hitters such as Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer.

The band includes, singer/guitarist Dave Mustaine, bassist Dave Ellefson, guitarist Chris Broderick and drummer Shawn Drover.

Tickets are $35.25, $55.25, and $59.50. Doors open 6 p.m., show starts at 7 p.m.
