Rob Zombie and Megadeth to Raise Hell at The DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids
Metal icon and film director Rob Zombie is ready to take his freak show back on the road. After being announced as one of the headliners for this year’s Rock On The Range, Zombie will embark on a co-headlining tour with Megadeth in May. Fans in Grand Rapids will be happy to know that one of the dates includes the DeltaPlex Arena.
BLABBERMOUTH reports that the tour will kick off May 11 in Holmdel, NJ. The two metal titans will stop by the DeltaPlex on May 18, right before they head to Columbus, OH for ROTR. Tickets for the Grand Rapids date go on sale Friday, March 2, at 10am at the DeltaPlex box office and eTix.com. See the whole May itinerary below.
Rob Zombie will hit the road for the first time since last summer, when he co-headlined with Megadeth’s Big 4 brethren Anthrax for the “Hell On Earth” tour. Zombie has spent his time since then filming his latest movie, The Lords of Salem. The project is a collaboration with producers from the Paranormal Activity franchise and is currently in post-production.
Megadeth will continue to support their 13th studio album, TH1RT3EN, which was released back in November. Two songs from the record have been nominated for Grammy Awards, “Sudden Death” in 2010 and “Public Enemy No. 1″ in 2011. “Sudden Death” was first featured on the video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.
