The crowd seemed gassed after Slayer and left kinda silent and fast.Tee shirts were the best Ive seen.Dissappointed that only Testament included The Am.Carnage tour on the back.None with all 3 bands.New designed Megadeth shirts tho,really good shirts.35$ a long sleeve was 50$Went to the Mustaine book signing in the AM. and Dave was super cool.Shook my 15yr olds hand and had a small conversation abt guitar playing.Used both his hands to shake my kids,bowed his head and said"Heres some mojo for ya good luck!"My kid abt pissed himself.Great day in Chicago.
