Want! Last time Destruction was here it was 19+. Destroyer 666 would also be sweet.

edit: Was just reading that Destroyer 666 are now based in Eindhoven, NL. This is like the 10th band I've read about to relocate there. Why is it so popular among metal brosephs?

Hopefully they announce a California date soon. I saw Destruction in 2009 and was greatly dissapointed by the set they played. They had to cut their set by 9-10 songs because some asshole stole Mikes guitar. :(

I Would totally be down to go see Destruction again. :rocker:

HOOOOOOLY SHIT.

Destruction was the craziest crowd I've ever seen, and D666 are phenomenal live as well. I hope there's an RI/MA date, but I'd go down to BB Kings for this if I had to.

The last two times D666 have toured the States, there's been a Club Hell date (I believe they've mentioned they're friends with the promoter). Destruction at Club Hell would be so amazing.

I saw Destruction in '06 but they only played for about 30 minutes due to bad weather. I'd like to see them perform a full set.

But was it their own headlining gig???? Bad whether?????? Wasn't the venue Indoor :confused:

The one I went to was a "headlining" gig so I feel a little cheated. I would definitely want to catch Destruction again but hopefully at a better venue with better security so BAND MEMBERS WON'T GET THEIR EQUIPMENT JACKED:flame:

It was some festival called "Metal Up Your Ass" at a warehouse in Arlington Tx. Lots of local bands and Destruction and Katalkysm. It was raining like a MFer. Leaky roof and all. They cut all the bands' sets short so they could hurry up and get out of town before the power went out or someone got electrocuted.

Awesome! Hopefully this makes it to LA. I saw Destruction in 2009 at the Key Club and they were awesome! I keep missing D666, so this will be a great chance to finally see them.

Of course, all the Destruction classics will be there; we know what our faithful fans want and we will serve them well! You will feel the force of the strongest line-up we have ever had. Experience the true power and the rigorous precision of German thrash metal live this spring! Can't fuckin' wait!"

Vancouver show added for April 26th!! Hell fucking yes! So stoked for D666. Had to miss them on the Enthroned tour. Destruction will be excellent as well I'm sure.

Also Infernal Majesty are playing this show. Not sure if they're on the rest of the tour or not, but they should be. Great band.

I don't think Warbeast is on the whole tour, only the Austin date. They're not on the LA show. And plus, they're from Texas, so they're probably just opening that show.

hmmmm. I think I might go see Destruction again. I thought they were fantastic at the chain reaction in 09', minus a couple of mishaps(like mike getting his guitar stolen and causing the band to cut their set by a good number of songs)and well....destruction rocks, nothing much more to say :hmm:

Due to an injury of the singer of Destroyer 666, they will no longer be on the Destruction 2011 tour. They will be replaced by Heathen.

I've always wanted to see Heathen live and their latest cd really impressed me.

I was supposed to see them at Maryland Deathfest as well, but Heathen for the Destruction tour and Nunslaughter for MDF are great replacements. But I still want to see D666 live at some point, they'll probably make it up when all is good again.
