For the first time ever, rock/metal acts Megadeth and Rob Zombie have announced a co-headlining, two-week tour, set to kick off on May 11 in Holmdel, New Jersey and concluding May 26 in Oklahoma. It's a short tour, but this lineup is divine and the shows should be amazing.

The tour will make stops at a few festivals, including Rocklahoma and Rock on the Range, and for all remaining shows Rob Zombie will be closing for Megadeth. No opening bands have been announced yet.

This will be the Zombie's first tour in almost a year, as his last one was in the summer co-headlining with Slayer on the Hell on Earth tour.

The tour will come on the heels of Megadeth's critically acclaimed return of the traveling festival Gigantour, created and curated by frontman Dave Mustaine. Rave reviews have poured in for the festival, which also features Motorhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil. The return of Gigantour, a nicely curated package tour of heavy metal bands, is just one more step in a great run underway by Megadeth, wrote the Boston Globe.
