The band’s 2009 CD, “Endgame”, premiered with 45,000 copies to debut at No. 9.

Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine was a featured soloist on April 12 with the San Diego Symphony. The classical special concert, billed as “Symphony Interrupted”, took place at the 2,200-capacity Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, California.
