This was my third time seeing Megadeth and others have reviewed this tour so I'll try to be brief. Both the sound and overall production with the 3 TV screens were better than when I saw Megadeth in this same venue a couple of years ago on the Rust In Peace anniversary tour so that was good. The bad was that I think Rust In Peace was far more worthy of an anniversary tour than CTE was, although a lot of CTE has grown on me over the years so this wasn't terrible. The crowd seemed more into the show than last time, even singing along with songs like Trust as well as the old classics like Peace Sells.
I have to deduct several points for no Wake Up Dead, the set seemed pretty short so it's not like they couldn't have fit it in somewhere. I was also surprised that it seemed Dave was only playing half the solos if that and the new guy who I don't know was playing a lot of them but he did well.
Dave is still not over the fact that the former mayor of my fine town called him a devil once, and he told us that as a youth he had run away from home and lived in Idaho for a short time, I had never heard that before. Overall a good show if a bit short, best performances for me were Symphony of Destruction, Ashes in Your Mouth and Holy Wars was fantastic, a good way to end the show.
