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.
Bingo. With the shit new album and Dave being wacko, a stellar live show is the only possible route they have of looking good. Goddamn it, how did they go from being the best of the Big 4 to the worst in just four fricken years?
