Gigantour Returning in 2009?

Posted by on May 21, 2009

gigantour_1010011010Noisecreep posted an interview with Megadeth Bassist James Lomenzo, who touched on the subject of a possible return for Gigantour. The festival, known for it’s curiously-constructed lineups, hasn’t been mentioned often since its last run in early 2008. Lomenzo promises a fourth run will be in the works, and it will come together quickly:

“It’s going to happen, it’s a force of nature! We have to see what bands are available, what tours are going through, when it makes sense to go where. It usually comes together fast. We can get it together in two or three months.”

I’m sure the tours (like anything on this scale) are actually deeply thought out and planned, but it makes you wonder if the “see what’s out there and put it together fast” approach might explain why Gigantour has seen such oddly constructed lineups featuring everything from Dream Theater to Dillinger Escape Plan to Overkill to Job for a Cowboy.
