One of the "big four" American thrash metal bands Megadeth has released via their official webpage
that they've been confirmed for China shows in 2017. So far, they've confirmed May 10 in Hong Kong and May 14 for Beijing, so that leaves... hey, just enough time in there for a Shanghai show in there. Rattling our contacts in the big-time-metal booking world, it seems a Shanghai show for Megadeth is being organized but is, as of this writing, not confirmed yet. The band is doing a world tour behind their latest record, 2106's Dystopia
, which won an award for Best Metal Performance at this year's Grammy Awards. Megadeth were last in China in 2015
, playing in both Shanghai and Beijing. We'll update this post if / when what is prophesied comes to pass. Hesher's get cautiously excited.
