Jagermeister Music Tour -- Louisville, KY -- October 12th, 2010

Jagermesiter Music Tour
Freedom Hall
Louisville, KY
10-12-10

Before the show started I participated in a meet n greet with Megadeth. I had met Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson before but of course I did not expect them to remember me- and of course they didn't remember me lol. All of the guys were very nice. Dave Mustaine took time out to talk to me and asked me what I did for a living. I told him I worked at a prison and we talked for a few minutes about that. He saw the episode of MSNBC Lock Up of the facility I work at. He told me if he ever gets locked up he would need me to break him out lol. He patted me on the back and thanked me for the job I work out (he even called me Officer out of respect) and off I went. All of the guys were nice and I had them autograph one of the Jagermesiter tour posters fI ound hanging around the venue. I've met alot of my favorite musicians and this was definitely a highlight that will stand out among all of the others I have met.

ANTHRAX:
Caught in a Mosh
Madhouse
Antisocial
Indians
A.I.R.
Metal Thrashing Mad
I Am the Law

Anthrax sounded great as usual. Belladonna sounded magnificent. My only complaint is that they should take out some of the staples like Mosh, Indians, and especially Antisocial and replace it with perhaps other fan favorite songs like Belly of the Beast, Skeletons in the Closet and Finale. They definitely need to change their setlist up a bit IMO. I caught a guitar pick from Scott Ian.

MEGADETH:
Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
Hangar 18
Take No Prisoners
Five Magics
Poison Was the Cure
Lucretia
Tornado of Souls
Dawn Patrol
Rust in Peace...Polaris
---
Trust
Headcrusher
How the Story Ends
Symphony of Destruction
Peace Sells/Holy Wars Reprise

Megadeth sounded great. They took out A Tout La Monde and replaced it with How The Story Ends. They said they needed to focus more on their new album. The song sounded good and I was pleased as it is one of my favorites from the new album. Chris Broderick played Marty Friedman's guitar solos note for note. He and Mustaine may very well be the best guitar duo in all of metal at this point. Both guitarists performed flawless at this concert and seemed to be having a good time.

SLAYER:
World Painted Blood
Hate Worldwide
War Ensemble
Blood Red
Spirit in Black
Expendable Youth
Dead Skin Mask
Hallowed Point
Skeletons of Society
Temptation
Born of Fire

Slayer sounded okay but not great. Tom's vocals were turned down a bit too low and when Jeff Hanneman played his guitar solos is was hard to hear. As a Slayer fan I was suprised that Megadeth had a much larger and more intense pit than Slayer did at this show. Probably because alot of the fans were tired from moshing during Megadeth's set. The person I went with dislocated their elbow so I had to leave before the end of Slayer's set to drive 3 hours back home so they could go to the ER. Slayer was fun but I have heard them sound better.

It was a fun and memorable concert. I have heard Slayer play better, but by no means did they suck last night. Just a few sound issues during their set. If you have a chance to go see this tour, go see it. Just seeing Rust in Peace and most of Seasons in the Abyss in its entirety was well worth the drive and the $ for the ticket.
