Metal Allegiance, the band featuring David Ellefson (Megadeth), Mark Menghi, Mike Portnoy (Sons Of Apollo, The Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater) and Alex Skolnick (Testament), has announced four celebration shows to take place on the West Coast this April. The band will be joined on stage by Chuck Billy (Testament), John Bush (Armored Saint), Phil Demmel (Machine Head) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon).
Furthermore, there are a few special guests depending on the date you go to. The April 17 show will feature Max Cavalera (Soulfly) and the April 20 show will feature Exodus members Steve "Zetro" Souza and Gary Holt. Portnoy adds that "each gig is going to be different with some surprise guests planned for each city. In true MA fashion…Ya never know who is gonna show up?!?!" So be prepared for something potentially awesome each night!
Openers for all four shows are Superfix and Weapons Of Anew.
