Metal Monarchs the Kings of Thrash will head back down under later this year for another dose of Megadeth-related mayhem!

This time around, and for his first time in Australia, original Megadeth guitarist, Chris Poland will be joining the group to perform the Megadeth album Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? in its entirety plus a ‘Best Of’ set for their upcoming Australian shows. An extra bonus to this run of shows sees a very exclusive, Q&A evening with the band themselves in Melbourne.

Kings Of Thrash: Wake Up…Australia!!! features Award winning, co-founding member of Megadeth, bassist David Ellefson, along with guitarist Jeff Young from the acclaimed So Far, So Good… So What! album and finally, after all these years, the original Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland, who recorded the first two extremely influential albums Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good!, along with the multi-platinum worldwide smash, Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?

What an honour to reunite these original members of a groundbreaking genre and showcase an evening of early Thrash classics in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and then Melbourne again!

If you were lucky enough to catch the band on their last tour of Australia in 2023… the shows were packed to the rafters and the VIP experience packages were sold out across the board. We were left wanting more…

So, we asked the fans… What would they want for a follow up tour of Kings of Thrash in Australia? The resounding, definitive answer? What will now be known as the Kings of Thrash Wake Up…. Australia! Tour.

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this line up… doing this album… with these guys… rounded out most expertly with the esteemed Chaz Leon and Fred Aching, returning once again, upon demand.

The run of Australian shows will kick off with a Very Special Q & A, Sit-down evening in Melbourne – an intimate, seated evening with David, Jeff and Chris. This will be a night of crowd interaction and Q & A on Monday, 22nd July at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne. This is your exclusive chance to hear all the stories, ask all the questions and to ultimately get your inner ‘Deth fix. There are special VIP meet and greets for this night as well.
