Blabbermouth also reports that alongside the festival stage the Jagermeister Stage will feature a special set of heavy metal, including Anthrax, Whitechapel, High on Fire and a special opener.
The concert will kick off on June 30 in the U.S. at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, Calif. Ticket sales will begin on Apr. 6 with a special pre-sale ticket promotion for fans who sign up to be on the pre-sale mailing list.
You knew we'd be back. Now, you know we're coming. This will be a tour people will scarcely want to miss. It will definitely be a show to remember, Corey Taylor of Slipnot said in a statement. Can't wait to see the states again from behind a mask.
Mayhem might just be the last and greatest metal festival before the world ends! So wreak havoc and go out in style, Tom Araya of Slayer added.
