Before I begin, its worth noting that I went to this show with Brad! :D

This show was par the course for what I expected. I suppose I was hoping Dave would get the urge to test My Last Words again but no dice.

This show is also notable because for the first time in a large venue, I was actually very close to being on the rail for this one, as in one person behind the rail. I was hoping the chodes in front of me would take a bathroom break after Anthrax but nope. After Megadeth I decided, "well if I'm not going to be on the rail, I might as well head somewhere where I can hear the sound better." As a result of me standing about 30 feet back, Slayer sounded the best that night :hecho:. Megadeth had the better set though IMO.

Also Slayer drastically altered their solos to Seasons In The Abyss. That REALLY pissed me the fuck off as those are probably my favorite Slayer solos. Assholes.

Highlights of each set:

Anthrax- the sequence of Indians, AIR and Metal Thrashing Mad
Megadeth- the sequence of Poison Was The Cure, Lucretia, Tornado of Souls and the glorious title track.
Slayer- Blood Red, Spirit In Black, Hallowed Point, Aggressive Perfector and Angel of Death.

The low point of each set was each respective frontmen having to announce the show as "The Jagermiester tour." I seriously think they're legally obligated to say the name once per set or they get extra money for saying the name. Either way, the corporations are taking over folks, better start making like Tyler Durden and blow up the credit card buildings.

Another low point was that all these bitch ass faggots blocking my way from the rail weren't even moshing to Anthrax. I've never been in (and am somewhat afraid of) mosh-pits and even I have the smarts to know that you get out there an hurt somebody to the thrash break of Indians. :hecho:

Did brad try to make out with you after the show?

JRA 10-15-2010 07:20 AM

No, but he did try to enthuse that Slayer had the better performance.

Oh yea, Jim Florentine was also there. He did sprinkles of stand up here and there. Half of the jokes were funny and half of them weren't. But he actually made the joke "Obama doesn't care about white people." Not sure if he was pandering to the crowd or honestly believing that but it was still a moment of holy suck.

I will rant later. The bands were great. The rest wasn't.

Was this your first time seeing slayer? They seriously draw some of the worst crowds I've seen this side of Ozzfest.

Dude, it's the opposite of what you think. I WISH it was a bad Slayer crowd that was drunkenly moshing and inflicting bodily harm on one another. At least then I would have known they were alive. Seriously, this was the most pathetic thing I've ever seen. Three of the eight biggest real metal bands of all time (I'd say only Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Ozzy, and Metallica are bigger) and it was about a 30-40% sellout, looked like a fucking Rays game. And then, the people who DID show up, fucking sat down, texted, ate popcorn, didn't sing along, didn't bang their heads, and just generally stared at the stage while metal was happening - even the fucking 15-16 year old kids! I get it if you're old, I guess, but if you are 15 and you're at a fucking SLAYER show and you aren't on your feet and worshiping heavy metal, you need to be shot. Fuck 'em all, they were a giant buzzkill. Even on the floor, where I wasn't, there was barely any moshing action. I always thought it would be cool to have an elevated view of a Slayer crowd to see the chaos going on below, but nope, not in Fort Wayne, aka God's asshole. I have more fun and get more animated when I go to the movies than these fuckers do when they go to a metal show.

I've had shows nearly ruined because karate kicking kids were getting into it in an annoying way, but I'd rather get karate chopped at Veil of Maya ten more times than have to see with such a truly depressing crowd.


Also, the Jagermeister shit was annoying as all hell, and the guy from That Metal Show is actually a bigger toolbag in real life than he is on his awful show.
