Bassist Dave Ellefson Rejoins Megadeth
After an eight-year hiatus, Dave Ellefson has returned to Megadeth and is set to hit the stage with the band for their upcoming spring tour.


Megadeth's original bassist Dave Ellefson is to rejoin the band for an upcoming tour to mark the 20th anniversary of the act's landmark "Rust in Peace" album. Band frontman Dave Mustaine made the announcement on Monday, February 8, stating he was looking forward to playing with Ellefson again after an eight-year hiatus.

The bass player will perform with Megadeth on their upcoming spring tour, when the group will play their 1990 album "Rust in Peace" in its entirety. Mustaine says, "This shows the power of brotherly love and forgiveness. David Ellefson belongs in Megadeth."

Ellefson adds, "This is a huge moment for all of us, band and fans alike. It is a great celebration of the music from one of the biggest landmark albums of our career." He'll replace James LoMenzo in the band. Mustaine has thanked the departing bass player for his "years of loyal service on the bass", adding, "We wish him the very best."
