Metal Allegiance will rock the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, next September 6th, on a bill that will also feature Meanstreak and Held Hostage.

The Starland show will come nine months after the group’s last performance in January, at the House of Blues Anaheim, as part of NAMM, and this will be the first Metal Allegiance show to feature the group’s core 4 – comprised of David Ellefson, Mark Menghi, Alex Skolnick, and Mike Portnoy – in six years on the East Coast.

As with previous shows, expect several guests, this time including Troy Sanders (Mastodon), John Bush (Armored Saint), and Dave Davidson (Revocation), among others.

“It’s time once again, for our metal summit with Metal Allegiance! This time we celebrate in heavy metals founding father state of New Jersey… the launch pad to so many legendary careers of our genre. The set list is sure to be blistering as we wrap up the summer together…see you there!” said Ellefson.

“After 10 years of performing as Metal Allegiance, it’s now finally time for us to take a trip across the GW and pay our friends in Jersey a visit…see ya soon Slayerville.” – added Menghi.

Skolnick chimed in: “Metal Allegiance is beyond pleased to announce our long overdue return to the East Coast. In addition to making up for lost time, this gig will mark the first time, after a number of noteworthy shows in the New York area, that we finally make the pilgrimage across the river. New Jersey may be a State that those of us from NY kid around with, but its place in metal history, both on the musician and industry side, is no joke. So join us on September 6, 2024, as Metal Allegiance and Jersey finally meet!”

“Looking forward to throwing down with my Metal Allegiance brothers again… it’s always such a blast! While New York and Southern California are the two usual locations for our bashes, it will be fun to venture into NJ for the 1st time. On a personal note, I’m also excited that the gals in Meanstreak will be joining us for this special one-off show,” concluded Portnoy.

Tickets are available here.
