This tour holds special significance as it coincides with the 30th anniversary of the groundbreaking album “Youthanasia” platinum (USA) and gold (UK) a milestone in Ellefson’s illustrious career.

We are super thrilled to finally bring Kings Of Thrash to the UK, in many ways the origins of heavy metal,” said David Ellefson. “Even more so, celebrating some highlights of the 30th anniversary of the ‘Youthanasia’ album.
