People are going to leave with a sour taste in their mouth and not want to see Megadeth the next time around. That's on top of the sub-par new material and Dave's weird semi-political ramblings working against ticket sales.
Exactly! Look at Iron Maiden as an example. They're in the same age category and always put on a 2 hour show with tons of energy. This is just another "fuck you" to the fans from Dave himself.
Aces High, my #1 favorite vocal performance EVER has been TIED with the opening part on The Red And The Black! I NEVER thought that would happen! WOW!
