‘Megadeth’ Frontman ‘Dave Mustaine’ to Join ‘School of Rock’ Students Onstage In Texas, South American Tour Dates Announced


davemustaine2016promo_638_b86School Of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, has announced that Megadeth lead singer and guitarist Dave Mustaine will visit the school’s Frisco, Texas location on Friday, February 19. Mustaine will give musical guidance to School Of Rock students, working personally with the future rock stars to help advance their musical skills. Additionally, the artist will join students from School Of Rock Fort Worth on stage to perform a few Megadeth tracks, both classic and new, for the rest of the school, contest winners from the Dallas-Fort Worth community, and the students’ families.

Mustaine brings a true rock ‘n’ roll experience to the aspiring young musicians of all nine Dallas-Fort Worth School Of Rock locations. His visit to School Of Rock comes just before the kick-off of Megadeth‘s “Dystopia” world tour, on February 20, in Dallas, Texas, celebrating the band’s fifteenth studio album.

School Of Rock continues to be an innovator in the musical education industry. The program takes students beyond the classroom and to some of rock ‘n’ roll’s most famous stages, such as Chicago’s House Of Blues and Lollapalooza. School Of Rock is using this event to celebrate the opening of School Of Rock Plano, its ninth Dallas-Fort Worth area location. Dave Mustaine adds to the curriculum’s authenticity as it gives students the opportunity to play side-by-side with a professional musician. Mustaine‘s extensive background and rock n’ roll expertise make him an ideal guest to join the School Of Rock staff who lives to play music.

“At School Of Rock, we strive to provide cutting-edge opportunities that sharpen our students’ instrument skills and strengthen their dedication,” says Dzana Homan, CEO of School Of Rock. “We are fortunate to have rock legend Dave Mustaine share his musical expertise. His passion for rock ‘n’ roll is the ultimate inspiration that will motivate our students to channel their inner rock stars.”

Megadeth‘s new album, “Dystopia”, debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200, having shifted 49,000 equivalent album units in the week ending January 28.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

In terms of pure album sales, “Dystopia” opened with 48,000 copies, markingMegadeth‘s highest-charting album since 1992’s “Countdown To Extinction” debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated August 1 of that year. “Dystopia” also logs the group’s best sales week since 2007, when“United Abominations” landed at No. 8 with first-week sales of 54,000.
