This show was easily one of the best I've ever been to (even if I DID have seats, although we moved around a bunch of times :D). When Testament came on there seemed to be a lot of sound issues. You couldn't hear any cymbals from the drums, you could barely hear the guitars during riffs...you pretty much heard all snare and Chuck Billy. I was surprised to see them switch it up a bit and throw in Trial By Fire and The Persecuted Won't Forget, but I personally would've preferred Into The Pit. After Testament came the long awaited Megadeth. I haven't seen them since Gigantour 2008 and I couldn't wait. I would've preferred them closing out the show but who cares? It's fucking MEGADETH. They put on a spectacular performance. The sound was PERECT. Every musician hit every note just like on the album, and Dave sounded AMAZING. The crowd was really into them, and they fucking deserved it. They killed it, banging out all their songs with little to no talking besides a "Hello" before Head Crusher. I can't remember headbanging so much before in my life, my neck is gonna be killing me for a week or two after this one. Once Megadeth was done I awaited Slayer. I'm not gonna lie, I wasn't THAT excited for them. They weren't playing many staples that I've wanted to hear for a LONG time now, but oh well. My neck was still killing me so I chilled out for most of the set until Seasons and the encore. This was by far the best encore I've ever seen before. They chose such amazing songs to finish up the night with and send us home with our asses kicked. I can't wait to catch Megadeth and Slayer on the second leg of this tour in October. See you all there!

YEEEEAAAAHHHH

The crowd definitely calmed down after War Ensemble, so I see what you mean about the setlist not being great. They could've thrown in a few more staples like Cult, Disciple, etc, and it would've been perfect. But I didn't mind this set so much, could've been better but it could've been worse too.

Those are not fucking staples.

and Manks, the Casual ones are the fans that think Reign through Seasons is the bands finest run whereas the real hardcore fans think Show No Mercy through Reign in Blood is the band's finest run.

You might have seen me, I was a long hair dude walking around after Testament trying to look for glasses that fell from the other story that were mine! I was in section 106, but I had a lot of fun! I had long, jet black hair that kept banging and a gotee! I snuck in from 210!
