I cant give an exact set list for Testament because I don't know their songs very well.I do know that I'll be checking out more of their stuff .They were good.They opened with "More Than Meets The Eye" and we got "Into The Pit".Chuck Billy called for a "Wall Of Death" and got it.Very cool.The Circle Pavillion sounded like crap but got better as the show went on as usual.Testament went over well with the crowd which was less than full at this time.Their stage set had 2 levels and I thought looked great.Megadeths set was the same as Clevelands."RIP" start to finish was amazing and I really got into seeing "5magics"and "Polaris".They really smoked through these songs and the band was the best I've ever seen them.(4th time).I could do without "ATout LaMonde".Vic came out during Dawn Patrol and looked less cheesy than the you-tube video I had seen.The whole band seemed "up for it" and the crowd was nuts.I've listened to Slayer since "South Of Heaven",but had not seen them.My god Dave Lombardo kicked my ass.Same set list as Cleveland. Tom took an empty water bottle to the side of the head during the show.I felt like I was getting hammered by a machine gun for an hour.They were brutal."Dead Skin Mask" was my faveorite."World Wide Hate" was amazing too.It was a 93degree day in Chicago, and the joint was hot as hell. The crowd seemed gassed after Slayer, and left kinda silent and fast.Tee shirts were the best I've seen.Dissappointed that only Testament included The AmericanCarnage tour on the back.None with all 3 bands.New designed Megadeth shirts though,35$; a long sleeve was 50$.Went to the Mustaine book signing in the morning, and Dave was super cool.Shook my 15yr olds hand and had a small conversation about guitar playing.Used both his hands to shake my kids,bowed his head and said"Heres some mojo for ya; good luck!"My kid about pissed himself.Great day in Chicago.

Once again, I ask that we start enforcing the use of proper grammar.

It looks to me like this person posted this off their phone. If it's a cheap ass phone like mine, it can come out looking bad. The reason I know this is i've posted off my phone before and it comes out looking like that on a long post. It'll look fine on your phone but when it's transfered to here it comes out fucked up.

As for enforcing proper grammar we'd be alienating some people. There's a few members on this board who aren't from English speaking countries and may not have a great grip on the language. They still deserve the chance to report on the show they went to weather they know the language and grammar that well or not.

I couldn't agree more. Oh, and format, too. Seriously. What's so difficult about doing things the way they're supposed to be done?

grammar aside, 'twould be better to police set list/gig report thread title guidelines, yes?

edited to say, the kid meeting Mustaine is a nice highlight however.

I made some grammar corrections to my post and will try to follow the guidelines of this page in the future.

For anyone keeping score, Slayer did not play Aggressive Perfector in Chicago. They went straight from Raining Blood into Angel Of Death.
