Megadeth -- Calgary, AB -- March 6th, 2010
Exodus was very disappointing. I could not hear their songs well, only the overly loud drums. It was just a wall of noise to me. That's too bad, because when I saw them earlier in February, they slayed. They played all their good songs and put up a great performance, and I could actually recognize. I didn't recognize most of the songs they performed last night, but that's probably because I'm not very familiar with newer Exodus.
Over the Wall
First Strike Is Deadly
Do or Die
Alone in the Dark
Testament was fantastic. I loved their performance, and they shook the whole crowd. I was saddened that they didn't play some of their other classics like Into the Pit, Disciples of the Watch, and the Preacher. Oh well, they played their best album in it's entirety. The lead singer is super cool, he was playing air guitar with his mic. :D
Set The World Afire
Wake Up Dead
In My Darkest Hour
Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
Take No Prisoners
Poison Was The Cure
Tornado Of Souls
Rust In Peace...Polaris
Symphony Of Destruction
Holy Wars [Reprise] - They re-played part of the song, the solo until the end. That's very bizarre, I know.
Well, what can I say? Megadeth was simply epochal. It was my first time seeing them, and they just blew my expectations. The whole band was so energetic, and the sound was pristine. Dave's vocals were difficult to hear though. This is the best Megadeth setlist I have ever seen. If they replaced Set the World Afire and In My Darkest Hour with Skin 'o My Teeth and Rattlehead and they added Devil's Island, it would be my perfect Megadeth set list. It was Chris Broderick's birthday yesterday, which I wasn't aware of, and they briefly celebrated on stage by lightning candles on a big ass chocolate cake...and then...they decided to throw it in the middle of the crowd. I feel bad for the dude or chick who got chocolate cake on them. There were a lot of people at this show...way too many. I could barely breath...it was nowhere as bad during the Arch Enemy show. I think that big bands like 'deth should play in larger venues, or the big venues where there are seats available.
So there you have it. Except Exodus, it was a great night.
Fuckin' awesome set!
I can't wait. I really hope Exodus pulls out Bonded By Blood though.
Any chance the first two Exodus could have been The Last Act of Defiance and Fabulous Disaster? I would die happy if they keep that on their setlist.

I just finished listening to those songs. I am fairly sure that those were the songs.
I'm surprised there's very little footage on youtube and NO bootlegs of this.
Once again, cannot freakin wait for this show:D
Still gotta wait till the end of the month :bouville:
I forgot "First Strike" was on The Legacy though so bonus :drool: :D
