This was my fifth time seeing Megadeth and the best of them all. Hearing all of RIP live is just an indescribable experience The band just sounded flawless with everything. I've read some reviews that Mustaine's vocals were low in the mix but tonight they sounded pretty strong. The crowd at the Town Ballroom was excellent and were pumped for this show. They drowned out Dave during most of the songs. The place was packed!! I've seen plenty of shows at this venue and i've never seen so many people there. You couldn't move at all by the time Megadeth was ready to come on. There wasn't much moshing during Megadeth from what I could tell mainly because there was just no room to do it. Which is cool because it actually meant people would be paying attention to the show instead of getting their ass kicked for no reason.

Testament did all of The Legacy and that was it. They did a great job to. People were really pumped for them. I'm guessing because they haven't come to our area that often in recent years. A lot of people were singing along to their songs as well which was cool to hear. I'm convinced with the amount that Chuck Billy air guitars with his mic stick that he fully believes that he's actually playing something Chuck also made a comment about how the last few shows they played were theaters with seats, and it was good to see people moving in the crowd again.

Exodus:

Bonded By Blood
The Last Act Of Defiance
Fabulous Disaster
Brain Dead
Piranha
A Lesson In Violence
The Toxic Waltz
Strike Of The Beast

They did a good job as well and it was nice to hear people singing along to their stuff to. Everyone went nuts during TTW and they even got the crowd to do a wall of death during SOTB.

An excellent nostalgia show and it was good to see so many old school fans (ages 30 and up) pack the place. There was also a decent amount of younger fans there to which gives me hope that the new generation of metalheads actually know what good metal is.

I hope Megadeth continues to play all of RIP for the rest of the year. Every fan of there's needs to have the opportunity to see this great performance of one of the greatest thrash metal albums ever
