Thrash legends, Anthrax will be making their way across the pond for a selection of live dates marking their recent 40th anniversary with special guests, Municipal Waste. Find out all the details below…

Still celebrating their 40-year tenure as one of music’s premier thrash metal bands, Anthrax announces their first UK tour since the summer of 2019.

Kicking off on September 27th, 2022 in Birmingham, UK, the band will play 28 dates in 16 countries, wrapping up in Zurich, Switzerland on November 5th. Crossover thrash band Municipal Waste will support on all dates.

It sure has been a long time since we rock’n’rolled in the UK and Europe,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante, “but we’re coming back soon to bring the noise to all of you guys. Being that we can’t get over there until 2022, we’re going to make sure that every show will be an eventful one. We won’t just be playing four decades of songs to celebrate our ongoing 40th anniversary – hey, we’ll be giving YOU some history! – but we just might have some brand new ones for you as well. Can’t wait to see all your happy, smiling faces!!!

The live dates are as follows…

On this tour, fans can expect Anthrax – Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/rhythm guitar, Frank Bello/bass, Charlie Benante/drums, and Jon Donais/guitar – to draw from all four decades – fan favorites and deep cuts –  for their nightly setlist.

There’s just something special about Europe,” said Belladonna. “Our fans there have always had a full-fledged excitement about our shows, and I enjoy performing more than anyone can imagine, so we’re really looking forward to this tour.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday 20th August at 10 am BST here
