MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:"Yesterday was a great day at rehearsal, and I am getting ready to head back up again today for more preparing for the tour. I am excited to hear how our new crew additions are/will settle in. And I love the drive up the coast. "I had to get new wheels and tires for all of the distance I am driving back and forth from San Diego to Los Angeles, and I wanna say thanks to Modern Auto and to you for getting my wheels. I will hopefully take a picture soon and show you, in case you wanna catch me. And I hoped you liked the call from rehearsal yesterday that went out to all my SayNow friends; I am going to do it again today and I welcome your messages helping me pick songs and stuff. I also want to send out individual replies, and I will, but right now I am focusing on preparing for the tour. "Meanwhile, we did 'A Tout Le Monde' yesterday, and . . . I will formally ask Ms. Scabbia [LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia, who sings on the re-recorded version of 'A Tout Le Monde' which appears on the latest MEGADETH CD, 'United Abominations'], so I can get an answer for you if she would like to do a duet with me in Australia [on the upcoming Gigantour 2007 tour, which features MEGADETH and LACUNA COIL alongside DEVILDRIVER and STATIC-X]." MEGADETH's U.S. tour this fall kicks off in Anchorage, Alaska on September 4, taking the band through 24 U.S. cites ending up in Norfolk Virginia on October 6. Support on the dates will come from IN THIS MOMENT and THE CONFESSION. For a list of upcoming MEGADETH shows, click here. The artwork for MEGADETH's upcoming box set, "Warchest", has been posted online at this location. The 4-CD+DVD collection features more than six hours of digitally remastered content, hand-selected by Mustaine, including 30 audio and video tracks making their global release debuts, and an additional three tracks that have never before been released in the U.S. "Warchest"'s October 2 release caps Mustaine and Capitol/EMI's in-depth MEGADETH catalog remastering and restoration campaign, which has encompassed the band's Capitol studio albums, while also adding new audio and video collections to the band's arsenal.
