Before I begin, its worth noting that I went to this show with Brad! :D

This show was par the course for what I expected. I suppose I was hoping Dave would get the urge to test My Last Words again but no dice.

This show is also notable because for the first time in a large venue, I was actually very close to being on the rail for this one, as in one person behind the rail. I was hoping the chodes in front of me would take a bathroom break after Anthrax but nope. After Megadeth I decided, "well if I'm not going to be on the rail, I might as well head somewhere where I can hear the sound better." As a result of me standing about 30 feet back, Slayer sounded the best that night :hecho:. Megadeth had the better set though IMO.

Also Slayer drastically altered their solos to Seasons In The Abyss. That REALLY pissed me the fuck off as those are probably my favorite Slayer solos. Assholes.

Highlights of each set:

Anthrax- the sequence of Indians, AIR and Metal Thrashing Mad
Megadeth- the sequence of Poison Was The Cure, Lucretia, Tornado of Souls and the glorious title track.
Slayer- Blood Red, Spirit In Black, Hallowed Point, Aggressive Perfector and Angel of Death.

The low point of each set was each respective frontmen having to announce the show as "The Jagermiester tour." I seriously think they're legally obligated to say the name once per set or they get extra money for saying the name. Either way, the corporations are taking over folks, better start making like Tyler Durden and blow up the credit card buildings.

Another low point was that all these bitch ass faggots blocking my way from the rail weren't even moshing to Anthrax. I've never been in (and am somewhat afraid of) mosh-pits and even I have the smarts to know that you get out there an hurt somebody to the thrash break of Indians. :hecho:

Did brad try to make out with you after the show?

No, but he did try to enthuse that Slayer had the better performance.

Oh yea, Jim Florentine was also there. He did sprinkles of stand up here and there. Half of the jokes were funny and half of them weren't. But he actually made the joke "Obama doesn't care about white people." Not sure if he was pandering to the crowd or honestly believing that but it was still a moment of holy suck.

Was this your first time seeing slayer? They seriously draw some of the worst crowds I've seen this side of Ozzfest.

Dude, it's the opposite of what you think. I WISH it was a bad Slayer crowd that was drunkenly moshing and inflicting bodily harm on one another. At least then I would have known they were alive. Seriously, this was the most pathetic thing I've ever seen. Three of the eight biggest real metal bands of all time (I'd say only Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Ozzy, and Metallica are bigger) and it was about a 30-40% sellout, looked like a fucking Rays game. And then, the people who DID show up, fucking sat down, texted, ate popcorn, didn't sing along, didn't bang their heads, and just generally stared at the stage while metal was happening - even the fucking 15-16 year old kids! I get it if you're old, I guess, but if you are 15 and you're at a fucking SLAYER show and you aren't on your feet and worshiping heavy metal, you need to be shot. Fuck 'em all, they were a giant buzzkill. Even on the floor, where I wasn't, there was barely any moshing action. I always thought it would be cool to have an elevated view of a Slayer crowd to see the chaos going on below, but nope, not in Fort Wayne, aka God's asshole. I have more fun and get more animated when I go to the movies than these fuckers do when they go to a metal show.

I've had shows nearly ruined because karate kicking kids were getting into it in an annoying way, but I'd rather get karate chopped at Veil of Maya ten more times than have to see with such a truly depressing crowd.


Also, the Jagermeister shit was annoying as all hell, and the guy from That Metal Show is actually a bigger toolbag in real life than he is on his awful show.

Eh. I'll give you Slayer and Megadeth, but I don't think Anthrax are quite big enough to solidify a slot on this list. When playing on their own, they play clubs. At least they did a few years ago when they actually did their own tour(s), which I wish they'd do again.

Also, Motorhead certainly deserve a mention. Don't like them, but credit where credit's due.

Fair enough. I'd say Anthrax make the top ten biggest at least.

Shouldn't matter who the bands were, the way people were acting is completely uncalled for. That's all.

that's always my biggest complain at Maiden gigs when I go see 'em on your side of the border, U.S. crowds are generally asleep and boring

Dumbass.



Also, I kinda have to disagree with Brad. Well in regards to the floor where I was, can't speak for the people in seats. Anthrax's crowd was kinda dead. There were these two kids in front of me on the rail who were doing all of nothing that I desperately wanted to punch out. The crowd got a little more active during Megadeth. There was supposedly a "no moshing" rule for the venue, but that was thrown completely out the window when Slayer came on and a decent sized pit formed stage right. That was the only pit there though, so I guess I understand what Brad means by barely any moshing.

I actually almost got into a fight with a dude because of the "shoving" going on during Megadeth. I was just shoving my elbow randomly to the back so the assholes would get the hint.

Pffft. Obviously. I've heard there are very few places in the world that can top Montreal's crowds. Though some friends of mine (From Van) who've gone south for shows have also said the same thing. Maiden's last tour wasn't the best for audience reaction, but the SBIT one was definitely nuts.

I've never had that. I will say the Maiden audience I was a part of in Toronto was a better experience than either I've had in Cleveland, but I wouldn't call those crowds "dead." Even during the mostly-new-shit set this past summer, the crowd was into it, or at the very least polite. Last night was a fucking abomination.

And yeah, Josh, I don't call one medium-sized pit (which I did see) a Slayer crowd. It should be 10,000 writhing limbs covering every square inch of floor and making the security guards too afraid to intervene. Or something close to that, anyway.

There was a good-sized pit at my show. Not as big as it could've been, but there were still a lot of people in it. A little too violent for me though :eyes:

Idk, I was in the pit for pretty much all of Slayer's set and it was awesome, but it by no means engulfed the whole floor or anything. If you think that was bad you should've seen the crowd at Mayhem '09. Shit was pathetic.

I'm not sure if the bands are getting paid to mention it but since Jager is the sponsor i'm sure they have to mention it at some point in the show. Also, there may have been people who aren't aware this is a Jagermiester tour. I didn't know that until I read the reviews. I thought it was another leg on the American Carnage tour. So because of that to they probably had to let people know.

You're right about moving during the "WARDANCE!!" part of Indians. Even if you're not a mosher you still gotta lose your mind once Scott screams that out. When I saw Anthrax in 2003 they ended with it and one of the bouncers who was working at the front of the stage even jumped into the crowd and went in the pit during that part:rocker:

There was a huge pit at my show. Wall of death for Testament, really big mosh/circle pit for Megadeth and the entire GA section was a warzone for Slayer.

Megadeth- the sequence of Poison Was The Cure, Lucretia, Tornado of Souls and the glorious title track.
Slayer- Blood Red, Spirit In Black, Hallowed Point, Aggressive Perfector and Angel of Death.


Just noticed this. My take:

Anthrax - A.I.R. and I Am the Law
Megadeth- Hangar 18 and Tornado of Souls
Slayer - Everything, but especially Angel of Death, Raining Blood, Skeletons of Society, War Ensemble, Dead Skin Mask, Seasons in the Abyss, and South of Heaven

The floor here woke up once Testament got the wall of death going. The crowd was pretty active for Megadeth....and Slayer got the usual apeshit reaction.
