Heavy Metal titans Megadeth and Lamb of God are teaming up for an extensive co-headlining tour that will be coming to Cincinnati this summer.

The bands — joined by Trivium and In Flames — will rock Riverbend's PNC Pavilion on Tuesday, July 7.

Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com.

The 55-date tour comes on the heels of Megadeth legend Dave Mustaine’s announcement that he is "100 percent" cancer-free, following numerous treatments for throat cancer.

“I know a lot of you guys know that I pray,” he told the crowd at a Jan. 31 concert in London, according to Roling Stone. “I say that in [Megadeth’s] ‘Peace Sells’. I pray every day. I say that in the song. I’ve said it since the second record. But I thought about you guys every day, too. And I thought about my family. And I got this power from you guys. And I just kept thinking about it. And on October 16th, I went to go see the doctor, and he said, ‘You’re 100 percent free of cancer.'”

Mark Morton, Lamb of God guitarist, called the road trip "THE metal tour of the year:" in a press release.

"The world has never needed heavy more than it does today and top to bottom, this tour delivers," he says. "Lamb Of God has toured with and been friends with all of these bands for years, but for all of us to be on the same bill is something extra special. Come early and stay late."
