    Thanks Everyone,

    I'm glad I have your support in this. Unfortunately I will not be able to do any more shows with Jag Panzer or Nevermore because the extensive touring that Megadeth will be doing. I wish them all the best and remain friends with both bands. I look forward to touring with Dave, James and Shawn and will keep my eye out for you guys.

    Take care, Chris.

    Official Press release:

    GIGANTOUR 2008 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED;
    MEGADETH TO HEADLINE BILL WITH IN FLAMES, CHILDREN OF BODOM,
    JOB FOR A COWBOY AND HIGH ON FIRE



    MEGADETH frontman DAVE MUSTAINE has big news for metal fans: GIGANTOUR is back, and MEGADETH has a new guitarist. The third installment of GIGANTOUR--the acclaimed traveling heavy music festival launched in 2005 by MUSTAINE--will kick off April 12 in Denver, CO with headliner MEGADETH, Scandinavian death metal band IN FLAMES, Finland’s CHILDREN OF BODOM, Arizona’s modern extreme JOB FOR A COWBOY and Oakland, CA heavy power trio HIGH ON FIRE all confirmed. The 29-date trek will criss-cross North America and wraps May 22 in Phoenix, AZ.

    MUSTAINE sums up the philosophy behind GIGANTOUR, hailed by Revolver magazine as “the mother of all shred-fests”: “If the bands and the fans are treated well, then the entertained and the entertainers go home happy--it’s a win-win situation.” Since its inception in 2005, GIGANTOUR has galvanized bands that emphasize true musicianship and virtuosity, offering them a new opportunity to showcase their talents. “I think that in a small way, we are cleaning up the environment of crappy bands,” he says, laughing. “All of the people that really love this kind of music know that they can count on these bands to deliver the goods this year.”

    In other MEGADETH news, the group has officially welcomed new guitarist CHRIS BRODERICK (Nevermore, Jag Panzer) to the band after parting ways with Glen Drover--which was hinted at back in November. “I’ve noticed [on the Internet] that people are pissed with me over the way things were handled with Glen quitting the group,” says MUSTAINE, “but they’re gonna be pissed even more when they hear how fierce we are with Chris! Megadeth is playing at a new level.” BRODERICK will make his live debut with MEGADETH February 4 in Finland, where the group--guitarist/singer MUSTAINE, guitarist BRODERICK, drummer SHAWN DROVER and JAMES LOMENZO on bass--is kicking off a long string of international dates which wrap March 14 in Bangalore, India. The full itinerary, including GIGANTOUR UK dates, is below. To see BRODERICK in action, check out http://www.chrisbroderick.com/video/fiveoctave.html.

    GIGANTOUR features bands hand-picked by MUSTAINE with a sharp eye on true musicianship and a heavy focus on top-notch guitarists. The first incarnation in 2005 included Dream Theater, Fear Factory, Nevermore, Life of Agony, Symphony X, Dry Kill Logic and Bobaflex, while the 2006 trek included Lamb of God, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Overkill, Into Eternity, Sanctity and The Smashup. The trek always offers a strong connection between fans and musicians.

    VIP ticket packages are available--via www.gigantour.com, www.megadeth.com and www.ticketmaster.com--whereby fans can take a personal photo with MEGADETH at an exclusive meet & greet session and receive an official tour laminate, guitar picks, etc.

    Just registered to crongratulate Chris on joining Megadeth.

    Megadeth has been a great influence in me as a guitarist, and I've been following you, Chris, with Jag Panzer since i've heard about the band in a Magazine compilation CD some years ago.
    Now both "worlds" get together!

    One of the most underrated guitarists in the world is finally going to get the recognition he deserves! Gratz Man!

    I'm eager to listen to Megadeth's next album with your influence in it! Man, I can't wait!
    Solos are going to be taken to a whole new level again!!!


    Cheers! :headbang:

    Hey Chris!!

    First time post here from another Chris :p

    Saw you play with Nevermore in Melbourne, Australia 2006, and was highly impressed with your efforts there. You rocked it quite simply, and I got no doubts about ya fitting like a glove with Megadeth.

    CONGRATS on the gig Sir :kickass:

    I know it's a big oppoprtunity for Chris, so cngrats for that.

    But to tell the truth, I think you're too good for current Megadeth:saint:

    I've lost the enthusiasm to Megadeth a few year ago, but if you're in,
    it'll be definitely worth to catch up:headbang:
