MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson has posted a 15-minute video clip featuring footage of his “sightseeing” tour prior to the band’s appearance at this week’s Gulf Bike Week 2012 at the Festival Park, Dubai Festival City, United Arab Emirates. MEGADETH performed on October 18, with support from Dubai’s very own resident rock bands ABSOLACE and SANDWASH.
Tyler Mervyn, Managing Director, Live Nation Middle East, said when the show was announced: “After a year hiatus from the Gulf Bike festival, Live Nation is thrilled to once again be working with Clarion and ecstatic to announce the concert series lineup for Gulf Bike Week 2012. We recognize that there is been a major void in live rock and metal music scene in Dubai, and put together this lineup with that in mind, and feel that the concerts will appeal to everyone; bikers, rockers or otherwise.”
Commented Ellefson: “We are thrilled to be playing Dubai. With the recent ‘TH1RT3EN’ album and current ‘Countdown To Extinction’ 20th-anniversary tour under way we will have a fantastic selection of songs for you at our concert.”
The 20th-anniversary edition of MEGADETH‘s 1992 double platinum-certified “Countdown To Extinction” album will be released on November 6 via Capitol/EMI.
After wrapping up their “TH1RT3EN World Tour” this fall, MEGADETH will perform the acclaimed album in its entirety on their “Countdown To Extinction 20th Anniversary Tour” this November and December.
