As great as this lineup is, I think the regular Megadeth/Iron Maiden show would be better. For one thing, every band on this lineup except for maybe Sabaton tours North America often, so it isn't difficult to see them. Testament and Anthrax are already known for their inability to make interesting sets when they headline, so this makes their problem worse. Megadeth and Maiden are really the only two bands with decent length setlists, but I'd have to imagine that by the time they came on, a lot of people would be quite tired.

I get what you're saying. However, this show was thrown together so that it can be put in a bigger venue and therefore a bigger payday for Maiden, unless I'm missing something.

Nah Maiden have played here and sold well with only one support act in the past. But all the bands together made this the greatest concert ever in my opinion, and I've been to quite a few...

I'm not the biggest Overkill fan, but they did play a song in between Ironbound and Elimination.

I definitely want to read your review for this show, so just do it! Start a new thread if you want to. It is not a problem to have more than one thread for the same show when you include reviews.

The Anthrax set is not so good but the rest look pretty awesome.

bigger payday for Maiden, .

Pretty much what they were going for. Although like turtle mentioned they drew like 25k with Dream Theater last time here. That was on a Saturday, this show on a Friday drew over 30k.

Last time Rod Smallwood (Iron Maiden's manager) came out after Dream Theater and they had to postpone Maiden coming on for 1/2 an hour cause of the backlog of people trying to get in.

I think there were more than 25 K last time and definitely more than 30 K this time.

OK so, now that I'm actually properly home etc.

This all kind of kicked off with disappointment. We didn't leave Las Vegas until a little after 10am, so by the time we got to our hotel in California (inexplicably in Ontario), checked in, changed, and drove to San Manuel Amphitheatre, we'd already missed Warbringer (who cares) and Overkill :( Sabaton were one song into their set when we got to our seats.

The heat was pretty ridiculous, but by the time Testament started the sun had gone low enough that the stage was blocking it, at least where we were in orchestra 2, so it was all good from then on.

Seems 25 minutes between bands wasn't long enough for Testament's people or Anthrax's people. And only Testament's stage manager actually seemed bothered by this. It's always infuriating when everything on stage is set up, but the drum tech doesn't come out and tune/test the drums until the last minute. Obviously there could have been some other problem that prevented that from happening, but honestly, I doubt it as there was basically no other activity going on. So both Testament and Anthrax started late, but both finished on time, so probably a song or two by each was cut.

Testament were Testament. Reliable, heavy, usual setlist, etc. Anthrax the same, although they played a few 6-7 minute songs, so didn't fit so many in. Indians really doesn't need to go on that long. Both good, but neither were incredible. I've seen them both be better.

Megadeth however were excellent. Much better than the previous night in Vegas, much better sound (oddly, as Maiden's sound was better in Vegas), and above all much clearer vocals for Dave.

Maiden were, of course, Maiden. Flawless show as always, probably a slightly better performance than in Vegas, but not as good sound. Overall though, the best sound I've experienced to date in a US-style amphitheatre. Biggest disappointment with them was the appalling stock of shirt sizes. Couldn't get a large in any of the worthwhile designs, and what the fuck was with not having an official event shirt for this one? Didn't buy a thing.
