Total fucking bullshit, so pissed off right now. First they knocked out 2 songs from the previous shows, and the worst part was the SOUND. I honestly felt like I was in my living room chatting normally with friends, I could hear people crack their knuckles it was so low. The crowd at a certain point chanted different things like "TURN IT UP, TURN IT UP" or "WE CAN'T HEAR YOU *clap* *clap* *clapclapclap*" and actually booing too at some points. Part of the fun of a Megadeth show is hearing Dave's stage banter...everything sounded like he was speaking through a pillow over his face or nothing at all, like Forrest Gump speaking to the protest crowd at the Reflecting Pool.

I feel really jipped, this wasn't exactly cheap, $45 where I was and that was a cheap seat.

They played great I guess, all the bands did, too bad you couldn't hear it. Motorhead was even turned down and they are about the loudest band on earth.

Please never play that venue again, they were acting like grandma was sleeping upstairs and for god's sakes don't wake her up.

Shit man, sorry to hear the show sucked so much :flame:. I agree, that's complete shit. Cutting out 2 songs (from an already unexpectedly short 14 song set), whittling it down to a measly fucking 12. How long did they play? 55 minutes?

After reviews of the Gigantour shows so far, not bummed in the least that I can't make any.

Wasn't this at MSG?

I think they went on at 9:05 or 9:10, off definitely by 10:25. Motorhead played 45 minutes I know that, it actually seemed like Volbeat played the longest but I don't know, maybe it just felt like the longest.

Weak set, not much different from their Big 4 set. Glad I didn't bite on those expensive ass tickets for Gibson Amphitheatre (Where pit was 100+ and nosebleeds were like 70).

Hopefully Motorhead really is on Mayhem, because I want to see them.

Megadeth went on at around 9:25. Was off by 10:25.

I'm pretty annoyed honestly. Motorhead was great, very entertaining. But when everyone in the fucking venue is shouting to turn Dave up, and you can't hear a word he says (I think he asked us who we were going to vote for, and he announced that it was Electra's 14th birthday) but it was a bit of a ripoff. I paid $70 for decent seats.

I'm really not too stoked for the show in Oshawa next week.

Also, Motorhead's seemed similar to previous nights on the tour but there was no Metropolis.

Shitty deal dude. I am assuming the set being cut short and the audio issues where something to do with the venue, not the band, correct? I hope I don't read too many more Gigantour horror stories, I'm still looking forward to my show on the 16th.

Had the same shitty sound issue when I saw them in Indianapolis on the Rust In Peace Anniversary tour. We drove 4 hours to see it too!

The sound was pretty good for an arena show in CT, so I'm shocked they didn't have an easier time with in the MSG theater (which is a friggin' theater, duh).

I was 5th row at that show and I thought the sound was very good. Where were your seats?

We were on the right,just under the balcony. I think that was part of the problem.I bet it was much better up front.

I don't remember the Volbeat setlist well because I didn't really know them. They played I Only Wanna Be With You which separates it from the other sets so far but the rest seems similar.

The Theater at MSG sucks for Metal shows.
Saw Heaven&Hell/Coheed there a few years ago.
The ceiling is low and flat, straight across.
There was probably something upstairs in the main MSG, hence the low volume.

Having seen Magadeth 4 times in the last 2 years i skipped this one.
Sounds like i made the right choice!
