Seriously my best show of the year. I got balcony tickets which sucked ass. So I enjoyed from there Testament. They were ok but im just saying that cause i was fuckin far. Me,Rjturtle,MetalheadAndrew,and friends snuck down to the pit right when Megadeth started. They were fuckin amazing.:rocker:No injuries this time for RJTurtle!Towards the end I got to the front. So I was infront the whole fuckin time for Slayer. Great fuckin show. And I did get wet when Vic Rattlehead came out. Bootleg shirts were cool. They had 3 diffrent ones.

1.World Painted Blood artwork thats says-2010 Tour. Back has American Carnage tour flyer with the seasons/RIP artwork and of coarse the testament logo with dates.

2.A bloody slayer logo with bloody hand print. Back had members all zombiefied and it had writing. Not sure tour dates?

3.A badass one that had Slayer's skull army guy and right under it it said Megadeth. Didnt see the back. I would've totally gotten it but i ended up getting shirt 1 first.:(


The greatest show Ive ever been too,and thanks to RJT's evil mastermind i got to enjoy it on the floor.:dfork:

Please explain...

As for the show, God damn! I finally saw a full Megadeth show without any mishaps. Truly a great show, especially since I ended up in the floor without GA tickets. And watching my girlfriend headbang and sing South of Heaven was a great moment too. She's learning so quick :D

Awesome show!! Did anyone see the guy in the pit who was being pushed around in a wheelchair? That was fucking awesome haha. Only down side for Megadeth's set was Dave's vocals. I couldn't hear it too good and it often seemed muffled, but everything else sounded great. Slayer kicked ass. I was excited to see Aggressive Perfector. Jumped into the pit right when they started AP and was let down when people were going at a mid tempo speed and not too crazy. I wanted the pit to get crazier, so I went at full speed, pushing people over to get them to get more into it, but that didn't work too well :mad:

Not sure, only stayed in the pit for Megadeth during Holy Ways, Hang 18, and Take No Prisoners, and thats the only time I saw him.

I liked that the backing vocals for Megadeth were like extra turned up, it really added to the songs. Tom did the scream to Angel of Death :party:

Glad you made it onto the floor .. because I never saw you after I sneaked in so I wasn't sure if you couldn't make it in or decided to go back to the seats. Thanks a million for getting me on to the floor. It really made my night. I simply can't imagine being in a seat for Megadeth and Slayer. But I really enjoyed Testament from the seat I had, first row of the 116 section.

I'm glad you finally got to enjoy a full Megadeth set. Let's do this at the Gibson too :rocker::rocker:

Anyone interested in my long-ass review, interview and my photographer's pics can go here: http://metalassault.com/Live_Reviews/083010_American_Carnage.php

P.S. Still searching for that pic of Mustaine wearing the Metallica shirt. Damn .. why didn't I sneak in my camera when I could sneak my whole body into the pit!

They give out wrist bands there too. I was in that pit for Priest last year.

I'll think of how to get into the pit. Jennifer might be the one to help me for that one. She did it for Priest.

With June 6th coming up tomorrow I felt like I needed to re-bump an old thread....

Man, I will cherish this concert for the rest of my life. Hands down, one of the best shows I have ever had the pleasure of attending. It was awesome being in the front rail right next to jeff hanneman for the first seven songs of the set. I ended up bouncing out of the front rail during the middle of "expendable youth" because it got way too fucking intense for me. I ended up chilling for the remainder of the show a couple of feet away from the rail, but still having a smashing good time.

With the recent passing of Jeff Hanneman it makes me have a new found love and appreciation for this epic concert. I had one of the best times ever and Slayer blew me away with their performance of my favorite Slayer record.

Seasons in the abyss was my first "old school" Slayer album and it ended up being my all time favorite from the band. It was such a treat to hear my favorite slayer album be performed right in front of my very own eyes. Tom, kerry,dave, and ESPECIALLY JEFF brought it to the fucking table. I remember jeffs guitar being omega loud and a bizzlian times louder than kerrys. It was awesome..

August 30th 2010 at the Long Beach Arena will always stay forever intact in my memory bank till the day i collapse and die. :hmm:

I will cherish this show for the rest of my life. :hmm:

R.I.P Jeff

r.i.p. slayer.

Amen bro, I saw that tour in Denver and it was the first time I saw Slayer; Testament and Megadeth were good but Slayer brought the house down

Seasons is also my favorite album and I shit my pants when I heard it would be played in full (Having Megadeth play Rust in Peace, my favorite album from them was icing on the cake)

I was on Jeff's side of the show and the sound was great it was pure ecstasy for not only to hear the classics off Seasons- War Ensemble, Dead Skin Mask and the Title track, hearing those other songs that were rarely played like Expendable Youth, Blood Red, Spirit in Black and Skeletons of Society was awesome.

In 2011 I had a blast at the Big 4 in Indio, CA. I thought Slayer owned the night, but it didn't feel the same without Jeff up there. Gary did a great job filling in, no way am I dissing on him, but it wasn't quite the same. Then Jeff came up for the last two songs and I remember the place went nuts when they saw him up there (Do you remember I texted you that and you were like "WTF are you talking about). Even though Jeff couldn't really play because of his arm it was inspiring to see him get up there and try. That will be my lasting memory of Jeff, fighting through pain (I have to image) to play for the fans

RIP Jeff, and happy international Slayer day

Also- I got my Jeff shirt in the mail today:rocker:

ahahah yeah i remember that perfectly. It's too bad i didn't actually see him on stage or had any clue that he was on stage performing, but at least it feels good to know that I went nuts in the pit while he was on stage performing the last two songs of the set. It was great meeting you at the Big Four and i'm glad we both got to witness jeff hannemans last performance with slayer. I'm even more happy that I got to witness Jeff Hannneman on his last REAL tour with slayer during the American Carnage tour. I will never forget both of these shows for as long as I live :hmm:
