Commented returning MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson: "We had a fantastic kick-off to the 'R.I.P.' tour [Monday] night in Spokane. It's been a lot of fun in a very quick amount of time and the pay-off with the debut of the tour last night was exhilarating indeed.
"It's great to be back on stage playing for all of you again, especially with songs from 'Rust In Peace' that have never been performed live before...until now.
"Looking forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks!"
Joining MEGADETH on the current tour are TESTAMENT and EXODUS.
The trek will run through the end of the month.
MEGADETH's latest album, "Endgame", was recorded at Vic's Garage, the band's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California. The CD was helmed by the group's mainman, Dave Mustaine, and British producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD).
