Job For A Cowboy are without a doubt the worst band I've ever seen. No idea what Dave was thinking bringing them. Evile ruled, as I'd hoped. Will definitely check them out in a month or so's time with Exodus.

Megadeth were... average, again. Better than last year, but still nothing amazing. Won't be paying to see them on their own again, but if they turned up at a festival I wouldn't avoid them.

Dave seriously, it's time to change up the setlist.

EDIT: And for fuck's sake, get Burnt Ice outta there.

At least "Ashes In Your Mouth" is still there.

Why would they bother changing up the setlist now after all these years? :zzz::zzz:

Last year we got the same set in London except for the following changes:

OUT -> IN
Set The World Afire -> Ashes In Your Mouth
She Wolf -> A Tout Le Monde
Mechanix -> Trust

Plus Never Walk Alone and Burnt Ice extra this year.

Guess you had to be there, because on the album it sucks. :hecho:

The last thing I want is MegaDouche preaching to me about drugs. :tp:

What annoyed me most was how he was so smugly saying "I told you I'd bring this here" (referring to Gigantour). Sorry, Dave, but a 1-hour-40 Megadeth set with two 30-minute support slots is not Gigantour. It's just a Megadeth show.

That is so true, If Megadeth did bring a proper Gigantour here I would probably have gone to the Glasgow show.

Even if it was just something similar to what the Black Crusade lineup was.
But Job For A Cowboy and Evile as supports, is NOT Gigantour. It's just Megadeth plus support.

About the setlist, I wouldn't complain about that, because it's Megadeth, and that's a good set of songs, even if they do play them regularly.

I couldn't agree more Andy. That got on my nerves too.

actualy this setlist isnt bad. i just wish they had mechanix (its a classic), she wolf (as long as its played like on rude awakening), and Good Mourning/Black Friday (All time favorite mega-song)

I actualy enjoy job for a cowboy so id like to see them live again.

True, but honestly, would you rather watch Job for a Cowboy play for an hour before Megadeth instead?

They played both of those last year, so dropping them was a good idea. They should have dropped several more as well.

No. I'd rather he didn't bring them at all and did Gigantour properly.
