Megadeth confirms tour with Body Count

Dave Mustaine has confirmed that Megadeth will tour the world with Ice-T fronted thrash band Body Count next year, according to Metal Hammer. The trek will apparently take place next summer and feature five bands in addition to Megadeth. Mustaine had the following to say to Metal Hammer:
"We're talking about a very large tour next summer with five bands on it with us. It's going to be more of a guest appearance than a direct support kind of thing. "We've been looking at a lot of interesting acts, but for me I don't always try and pick out the flavour of the month – I have loyalty to my friends. I always thought that Body Count, while if not for everybody, I thought it was great. "It's not your normal metal band, it's cool to see somebody crossing over from the hip-hop world into the metal world. I think it's great to be open-minded about different people from different backgrounds."
