There will be plenty of memories even for the most history-challenged fans, what with Megadeth continuing its front-to-back performance of its 1990 release Rust In Peace. Slayer is also serving up an album-in-its-entirety, performing its 1990 disc Seasons In The Abyss.

And, in case you haven’t been keeping up, Anthrax recently welcomed Joey Belladonna’s return to the band, making this tour a classic metal outing to the umpteenth power.

The new leg begins in Dallas at Verizon Wireless Theatre Sept. 24, plays San Antonio at the AT&T Center Sept. 25 and hits Houston for a gig at the Verizon Wireless Theatre Sept. 26. Other stops include New Orleans, Orlando, Atlanta, Baltimore, Uniondale, N.Y., Milwaukee, Las Vegas and Universal City (Los Angeles).

A fan presale begins July 14 and the public onsale for most markets begins July 23. There will also be a limited amount of $10 tickets available in most markets.
