Heavy-metal icons Megadeth will canvas parts of the U.S. this fall to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1992 effort, "Countdown to Extinction."

The California-based outfit will finish up the in-progress world trek behind "Thirt3en" with a handful of South America and Mexico shows before kicking off the anniversary run with a Nov. 9 performance in Providence, RI. Eighteen theater shows are on the schedule, which extends through a Dec. 7 concert in Pomona, CA.

Megadeth will perform their multi-platinum fifth studio set, "Countdown to Extinction," in its entirety on the fall tour, as well as release a special anniversary two-disc edition of the album Nov. 6 via Capitol/EMI Records.
