Lacuna Coil played first. They are always a fun live band, and I love Cristina's voice.

Lacuna Coil setlist
Our Truth
Upside Down
Fragile
Kill the Light
Trip the Darkness
Spellbound


Volbeat was next, and they totally stole the show! Amazing! That's pretty much all I can say.

Motorhead killed it as always. They're truly a great hard rock band, and a MUST SEE live band. It's worth the price of admission just to see them play "Going to Brazil" & "Stay Clean."

Motorhead setlist
Bomber
Damage Case
I Know How to Die
Stay Clean
Over the Top
The Chase is Better Than the Catch
The One to Sing the Blues (w/ Drum Solo)
Going to Brazil
Killed By Death
Ace of Spades
Overkill


Megadeth headlined, and they had 3 extremely tough acts to follow. They held their own. "Forclosure of a Dream" was the pleasant surprise of the evening. Plus, "Hangar 18" & "Symphony of Destruction" are two of the finest metal songs ever, IMO.

Megadeth Setlist (NOTE: I left before the encore)
Trust
Wake Up Dead
Hangar 18
She-Wolf
Forclosure of a Dream
Dawn Patrol
Head Crusher
A Tout Le Monde (w/ Cristina from Lacuna Coil)
Public Enemy #1
Whose Life (Is It Anyways)
Guns Drugs & Money
Symphony of Destruction
Peace Sells

Because hitting a key that's right next to the dash by mistake is worth calling out someone about.

Dave desperately needs to change up the setlist. Trust and Wake Up Dead are awful ways to start a show.

I hope they bring Angry Again back into the set soon enough, I'm seeing them on Thursday and would love to hear it. FOAD is a great song too, but Angry Again is really one of my favorite Megadeth songs and has been since I started listening to them nearly ten years ago.

Their setlists lately just haven't been that great, in my opinion.

I've been following the tour on Setlist.fm, it seems they keep on changing up a few songs here and there. Kinda hard to predict one night to the next.

I think the setlists for this tour are great if you're seeing Megadeth live for the first time, but if you've seen them any more than that it's a disappointment.

Yeah, for a first timer this is probably an okay setlist (though Trust as an opener is still a big WTF?). But I've seen them three times already personally, so yeah it's definitely not as good as it could be.

I have no problems with Trust as a song, it's just a weird opener. When you're a band like Megadeth with so many awesome fast songs it would make more sense to open with a fast song and maybe play a slower song or two around the middle of the set.

Happy to see Headcrusher in there, but that's still a crappy set. It really isn't too hard to make a good set with Megadeth; hell, look at Gigantour 2008. 17 songs, three then-new tracks, one from the album prior, one rare track and the rest classics.

And how hasn't Dave realized that Dialectic Chaos/This Day We Fight will be the greatest opener Megadeth will ever have? Opening the set with Trust should be illegal.

Hell, look at 2005. 19 songs, 4 new ones, and classics including Set the World Afire, Tornado of Souls, Reckoning Day, Sweating Bullets, Angry Again and all the other standards. Its like wtf?

I think this is as good as it gets for Lacuna Coil as an opener. They picked the highest quality songs from their past three. Love the direction they are heading in. I would be thrilled to see this if I were to have gone to this tour. Hell, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil are the only reasons I would actually consider attending this tour.

Not saying anyone is, and rightfully so. Noone should be defending MD's recent setlists. They're just, bad.

Easy buddy. A completely valid complaint, the format was incorrect.
