Slayer was headlining this show but I was there mostly for Megadeth. This was my third time seeing them and they have always put on a great show. I wish they were headlining so they could play longer. I also think the crowd was more into Megadeth than Slayer. I know I sure was.

Setlist:

Sleepwalker
Wake Up Dead
Hangar 18
Skin O' My Teeth
Rattlehead :rocker:
Kick the Chair
In My Darkest Hour
She-Wolf
Headcrusher
Symphony of Destruction
Peace Sells
-----------
Holy Wars ... The Punishment Due


The new song "Headcrusher" is pretty good too.

It's cool that they're dusting off Rattlehead. But I think Dave should take a lesson from his old buddies in Metallica and mix up the song selection a bit more. It's been the same set for 2 or 3 years now. Maybe throwing in Last Rites, Skull Beneath the Skin, Black Friday or Five magics. Bringing back Take No Prisoners 2 years ago was cool though. I love Megadeth but Dave needs to get a little more variety going in the sets.

But that's not Christian.

I'm guessing Dave just got bored after he got clean so he needed something to fill the void. He made the more boring of the two choices I think;)

Good set. Hopefully when they headline shows for the new album they will play a little longer.

If they keep Rattlehead in the set I'd go see them every chance i got. That is one of my favorite Megadeth songs. Like people have said they need to change the set, but that is enough fo rme to go and I have seen them atleast 10+ times.

Slayer and Megadeth co-headlined and played for equal durations in all 4 shows. I was at Vancouver gig and Megadeth played last, but played the same setlist. Glad you enjoyed it. Rattlehead was easily the highlight for me :rocker: :rocker:

Maybe I'm in the minority here but that setlist needs a swift kick in the ass. Rattlehead is great, everything else has been done for years. They should have left Take no prisoners in and dumped She-wolf. Added Tornado of Souls back and buried kick the chair forever. Throw us Hook in mouth, skull beneath the skin, Devil's Island, even a medley of My last words/conjuring/Black Friday would rule. Or like the 1 guy mentioned if he's "born again" play Looking down the the fukkin cross!

They released the Peace Sells songs on Rock Band and get people into those songs so why not play them live? The re-released Killing is my business so play those songs and people will buy the cd. It blows away any other cd they've made in the last 10 years.

The 1st time I saw Megadeth was on So far, So good, So what tour. 1st time I had ever seen a mosh pit and that setlist was sick! I wish I could find it now. I know they played Looking down the cross, skull beneath the skin and Mechanix off KIMB and a ton off Peace Sells.

Doro opened. Anyone remember her and her perfect fat ass stuff into leather pants singing with the hottest accent ever? nom nom nom :drool:

Take No Prisoners has also been played on last couple of tours. Tornado has always been a staple so I didn't mind that it wasn't played. And I really don't see a problem with Kick The Chair. Amazing song \m/
They could have dropped Skin O' My Teeth or Symphony for Hook In Mouth though. I would die to see that song played live.

Does anyone have Machine Head's set? Slayer and Megadeth's are both kick-ass. Wish this came to the US.
