Fan-filmed video footage of MEGADETH‘s entire May 29 performance at the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, Texas can be seen below.

The band’s setlist was as follows:

01. Hangar 18
02. The Threat Is Real
03. Sweating Bullets
04. She-Wolf
05. Post American World
06. Trust
07. Fatal Illusion
08. Symphony Of Destruction
09. Dystopia
10. Peace Sells
11. Holy Wars… The Punishment Due

MEGADETH played its first show with drummer Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK) on May 20 at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.

MEGADETH recruited Verbeuren to play drums for the band while Chris Adler is busy touring with LAMB OF GOD.

Adler played drums on MEGADETH‘s latest album, “Dystopia”, and has taken part in most of the band’s live shows in support of the CD so far. On those shows where Adler was unable to play with MEGADETH, he was temporarily replaced by Tony Laureano (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, NILE, ANGELCORPSE), the veteran extreme-metal skinsman who has worked as MEGADETH‘s drum tech since 2011. However, going forward, MEGADETH will utilize the services of Verbeuren, the 40-year-old Belgian-born-and-now-Los-Angeles-based drummer who has been playing with SOILWORK since 2005.

Verbeuren was recommended for the MEGADETH job by Adler, who called Dirk “probably [one of the] top three drummers in the world.”
