The rumors have been confirmed, Marty Friedman will be performing with Megadeth for 3-song encore at Budokan an February 27, 2023. The show will be available for livestream, rebroadcast and on demand. Advance ticket costs $15 USD, and $17 USD for day of show ticket.
Marty Friedman was in talk with Megadeth camp for Rust in Peace reunion back in 2015. At that time, the late Nick Menza had signed up for the reunion, which later fell through.
In 2015, the source within Megadeth camp told us the background story for the attempted Rust in Peace reunion. The idea for the reunion started long before then drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick announced their departures from the band.
Anyway, we got our ticket already.
On another music news, Steel Panther released “Friends With Benefit”, the third song from their upcoming On The Prowl album.
On The Prowl is scheduled for release on February 24, 2023 as the band kick off their On The Prowl World Tour in Las Vegas, Nevada. We will be attending the show at Anaheim House of Blues on February 25, 2023.
