According to a posting on MEGADETH's official web site, MEGADETH fans will be holding a "Megadeth Convention" in the U.K. in November 2006. The event will be held at the famous Cavern Club (where THE BEATLES played their first show back in 1961). Tickets are limited to 200 and are on sale now. Event details are here. (Note: MEGADETH are not planning to attend this event.)As previously reported, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine announced at the conclusion of the band's headlining performance in Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 9 that the group's current lineup — which includes bassist James MacDonough, drummer Shawn Drover (EIDOLON) and guitarist Glen Drover (EIDOLON) — will continue to record and tour under the name MEGADETH. MEGADETH recently completed a South American tour in support of "The System Has Failed", which came out in September 2004. The latest MEGADETH release, "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" (Capitol), entered the Billboard chart at No. 65 and has sold 111,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
