- I made it to the rail before Motorhead started. There was a pretty serious crush throughout Motorhead and Megadeth. There were also a lot of crowd surfers. One guy put his arm around my neck from behind and tried to pull me off the rail. I had to "convince" him that it would be wise to move on. It was a rowdy crowd. I went home with several bruises.
- Lacuna Coil were pretty good but just not what I would want as an opener on a thrash show. Cristina sounded great and has an excellent voice.
- Volbeat was better than expected. They were fairly heavy and energetic. They played a Johnny Cash cover, which the crowd seemed to love.
- Motorhead was Motorhead. They played rock and roll.
- Megadeth was great as usual. Opening with Trust seems like a bad choice on paper, but it was cool live. The drum beat starts out and the intro part plays while the curtain is still covering the stage and it drops when the guitars kick in on the main riff. It was also cool to hear Foreclosure Of A Dream. Dave played the dual-neck Flying-V on both Foreclosure and Trust. The new songs sounded great and I hope they do a full headlining tour in support of Thirteen. Great show overall.
The world weighs on my shoulders but what am I to do?
