GIGANTOUR STOPS IN CANANDIGUA, NY ON SATURDAY

David Yockel, Jr. for RochesterCityNewspaper.com has published the following article.

If you didn't know better, you might think that Dave Mustaine got dealt a lame hand when he was fired from Metallica in 1983. In reality, his band Megadeth has been one of the most durable and influential thrash metal outfits of all time, having sold more 50 million records worldwide, while garnering consistent critical acclaim. (And, by the way, the band has never recorded a Bob Seger song. Just saying.) The group's latest album, "Super Collider," its 14th studio effort, is filled with the trademark technicality and devastating guitar solos that have defined Mustaine and company's sound for almost 30 years.

Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Newsted, and Death Division also perform as "Gigantour" stops at CMAC. Megadeth performs Saturday, July 6, 4:30 p.m. at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. $32.45-$54.90. cmacevents.com.
