2011 marks the 25th anniversary of Megadeth’s second album, “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?!” There is a chance the band may tour behind that as well like they did for the 20th anniversary of “Rust In Peace” last year. Mustaine told VH1 Radio Networks’ Dave Basner, “We’ve already had people talk to us about doing that and I told our manager that I’m totally interested in doing ‘Peace Sells’ for a 25th anniversary this year but I don’t want to do it all year like we did with ‘Rust in Peace’. I want to do it towards the end of the year. So we’ll do the whole year doing our thing and then come around October, where the end of the year is, you’ve got a quarter of the year left, October, November and December, where we can do the ‘Peace Sells’ thing. You know, when you tour you’ve got to really be creative nowadays and when we tour, we like to tour-tour and then when we do special shows, which are called one-offs, we like to do real key one-offs,” he told VH1 Radio Networks. “And I think it would be really cool to do a hard tour where you’re canvassing all the areas that you need to hit and then if you do something symbolic like the ‘Peace Sells’ anniversary tour, just do like The (Rolling) Stones do, do 12 cities around the world.”
Dave Mustaine and Megadeth are going to be extremely busy in 2011, taking part in the “European Carnage” tour with Slayer in March, to be followed by a one-off “Big Four” U.S. festival date with Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax in April, and an appearance at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival over the summer with Disturbed and Godsmack.
