MEGADETH Plays 'Secret' Club Show In Montreal: Video Available

After taking part in this year's Heavy MTL festival on Saturday (July 24), MEGADETH played a "secret" club show early this morning (Sunday, July 25) between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. at Métropolis in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The band's setlist was as follows:

01. Dialectic Chaos
02. This Day We Fight
03. Wake Up Dead
04. In My Darkest Hour
05. Skin O' My Teeth
06. Hook In Mouth
07. Angry Again
08. The Right To Go Insane
09. Paranoid
10. She-Wolf
11. Mechanix
12. Anarchy In The UK (beginning only)
13. Rattlehead

Commented MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson: "We just finished one of our first-ever 'secret shows' tonight at the Metropolis in Montreal, right after our full-on festival set. That's right, two for one! It was a total off-the-cuff show that was announced last minute (even to us!) and gave us an opportunity to kick it old-school (as in club gig) and play some tunes we don't normally play in our regular set, i.e. 'Mechanix', 'Rattlehead' and the likes. So, be on the lookout for more of these random late night shows in our future travels in your town... oops, that's right, it's a secret!"

Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below. Also available is a pre-concert video message from MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson and drummer Shawn Drover.

The final night of MEGADETH's historic month-long "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour has been captured for the upcoming "Rust In Peace Live" Blu-ray, DVD and CD, due out September 7 on Shout! Factory.

On March 31, 2010, at this incredibly special show at the legendary Hollywood Palladium, not far from where Dave Mustaine formed the band in 1983, MEGADETH played their landmark, genre-defining 1990 "Rust In Peace" album in its entirety, in addition to other MEGADETH favorites. "Rust In Peace Live" also marks the return of original bassist David Ellefson (MEGADETH 1983-2002) to the iconic multi-platinum group after eight years. Ellefson (bass), joins Mustaine (lead vocals, guitar), Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar).

"Rust In Peace Live" features the entire "Rust In Peace" track listing, including all-time classics "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" and "Hangar 18" along with bonus fan favorites from various other MEGADETH releases such as "Symphony For Destruction", "Peace Sells" and "Skin O' My Teeth".

The 80-minute "Rust In Peace Live" DVD (5.1 Dolby Surround 16:9 Widescreen) and Blu-ray (5.1 DTS Master Audio 1080p High Definition) were directed by Kerry Asmussen (GREEN DAY, JAY-Z, Coachella). The DVD and Blu-ray will also include behind-the-scenes footage, including a rare glimpse of the band rehearsing in their dressing room as they prepare to take the stage.
