Encyclopedia > Gigantour
A Gigantour 2005 web banner, before Anthrax was announced to join the festival.

Gigantour is the name of an annual six-week traveling heavy metal music festival organized by Megadeth's Dave Mustaine. The tour was founded in 2005 with dates across North America, and the 2006 line-up will also travel to Australia. The bands appearing at the festival were chosen by Mustaine because he wanted to "put together a festival that consisted of positive bands that play heavy music in a high energy environment." The tour is set as an alternative to tours such as Ozzfest. Image File history File links Gigantour_1010011010. ... Image File history File links Gigantour_1010011010. ... “Heavy metal” redirects here. ...

Ozzfest is an annual tour of the United States (and in some years, Europe) featuring performances by many Heavy Metal, Metalcore, Death Metal, Hardcore and Nu Metal groups. ...


Among the stated goals of the tour are to cater to fans of many different styles of metal, as well as to introduce fans to less familiar acts. This is accomplished through the second stage, which hosts less-well-known metal bands.


The name Gigantour was inspired by the classic 1960s Anime "Gigantor". The Gigantour logo was inspired by The Terminator logo. The logo was conceived and designed by Dave Mustaine and Megadeth.com webmaster Dave McRobb. “Animé” redirects here. ...

The Festival

Since the formation of Megadeth in 1983, they have toured with some of the biggest names in metal — from Iron Maiden to Anthrax — and are in fact one of the biggest names themselves. However, they have also performed with several highly respected bands that are not quite as popular. Each of the bands that were picked for Gigantour was chosen because Dave Mustaine believed it was among the best of the bands that he had played with or heard in his career with Megadeth, regardless of how many albums it had sold. Such bands as Dream Theater, Nevermore and Overkill are all highly respected by members of many other big-name bands and have strong followings in the metal world, but they are not nearly as commercially successful as big-name metal bands. Gigantour is an event that brings bands together for no other reason than the fact that they put on a great show. This article is about the band. ... Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band comprised of James LaBrie, John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess, John Myung, and Mike Portnoy. ... For the Queen song of the same name, see Nevermore (song) Nevermore is an American progressive metal band from Seattle, Washington assembled in 1991 from the ashes of the power metal band Sanctuary. ... Overkill is one of the first Thrash Metal bands, formed in the early 1980s in New Jersey (but often attributed to New York City), and very active ever since. ...


Furthermore, the tour was devised as a way to cater to fans of many different styles of metal in the one package. There is much cross-over appeal in each of the bands on the bill, but they normally would not appear on a bill together unless it was another mainstream festival. Gigantour is a chance for fans of all styles of metal to see the best of many different styles in one place, with the music solely focused on great heavy metal, and not on current trends and fashions.

Notes and Highlights

Lack of a second stage on some tour stops

July 28, 2005 - San Diego, CA
For the San Diego show there was no space for a second stage at the venue, and so many bands were left off the bill. As a result only four bands played that day, with Nevermore opening, followed by Fear Factory, Dream Theater, and Megadeth closing the show. To compensate for the glaring lack of advertised bands, however, each band performed extended sets, with Dream Theater and Megadeth playing (approximately) an hour and a half each. is the 209th day of the year (210th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Mike Portnoy jams with Megadeth

September 3, 2005 - Toronto
Dream Theater played their last Gigantour date in Toronto. As a surprise, Mike Portnoy joined Dave Mustaine, James MacDonough, Shawn Drover, and Glen Drover performing "Peace Sells". Portnoy played the drums while Shawn Drover picked up a guitar and was the third guitar player on the stage. Drover did one of the solos and surprised everyone in the crowd. Unfortunately, his guitar was unplugged for a fair bit of the song. According to Megadeth bassist James Macdonough, Portnoy pulled a prank on Drover by dumping baby powder on the snare drum when he was getting off the drum kit. As soon as Megadeth ripped into "Holy Wars", Shawn's snare drum turned into a "smoke" machine. Portnoy admitted to the prank on the DVD.

Dave Mustaine throws his guitar

At the September 25 show in Toronto, Megadeth frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine threw his guitar at a mixing board set stage right. The incident occurred while Megadeth performed "The Scorpion", a track of their album "The System Has Failed". Mustaine's vocals were essentially inaudible during the song, and throughout the two songs previous, possibly due to excessive amounts of bass drum sound. In addition, Mustaine's desire to put on a good show for a country that is home to half of his band would no doubt have a serious effect on his actions. After tossing his guitar, Mustaine promptly left the stage, while the rest of Megadeth continued to finish the song, and did not return for close to 15 minutes. Upon his return, Mustaine reintroduced himself by, in his stage voice, saying "Before we were so rudely interrupted" to the audience, and immediately after continued playing.

Megadeth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3505 words)
However, following the launch of Gigantour in 2005 and a clear revitalisation in the future prospects of Megadeth from the year previous, Mustaine decided instead to 'allow' Megadeth's continued existence.
Dave Mustaine is notorious for his feuds and problems with other bands, including Slayer and Metallica as well as with his former bandmates, going so far as to sue Dave Ellefson over his position as a former member of Megadeth being mentioned in an advertisement.
In May 2005, during preparation for the band's "Gigantour" festival, Dave Mustaine threatened to cancel non-related shows in Greece with Rotting Christ and Israel with Dissection which in turn caused the two fl metal bands to cancel their appearances.
