A little less size for Gigantour

Dave Mustaine's Gigantour will shrink to five bands instead of eight.

Mustaine says on his Web site the lineup will be Megadeth, In Flames, Children of Bodom, Job For A Cowboy and High On Fire. The tour will kick off in mid-April, although specific dates have yet to be announced.

Mustaine says the decision to have five bands rather than eight is based on timing, set lengths, stage sizes and unions, and "most importantly," as he puts it, "allowing 'us' - the musicians - to deliver to 'you' - the fans - the best shows we can."
