I personally don't think anybody should be opening for this. I mean, I think it's safe to say that anybody who's buying a ticket isn't buying it just to see Down. People have been waiting a long time for this have to sit through two bands that they may not even care about? Besides, those extra bands are probably the reason Heaven & Hell had to have their set cut short. So I say drop Down (or drop both bands), and as for Heaven & Hell, get your ass on stage early and give them fans the full show they've been wanting to see.

Good to see support for Astral Doors. I think they're a great band and it's really cool that their music is so derivative of classic hard rock/metal.

While i can agree on the "evening with" concept... they are playing a full show. To me the show is a very respectable length... What do you want? The guys are all almost (or already) 60-ish as far as I know, give em a break. Maiden plays like 15 songs at a headliner show and they're all 10 years younger.

I just thought of this, but how would the encore work? I mean, "Heaven and Hell" ain't exactly chantable.

That doesn't make it right.

What do you mean? I think Neon Knights works fine as a finale. Actually, Die Young would be better, but that's just splitting hairs.

1.) Go cry more

2.) I know several people on the Stonerrock.com forums that went specifically for Down, and I'm sure there are more

These guys are not fucking robots, its exhausting to metal play in your 60s for 2 hours a night. Go do something with your life before you start bitching about what these grandpa's are doing when most people in their prime of their youth can barely run a couple miles before crapping out, let alone perform a concert to thousands of fans hanging on your every note and every move. Go cry more or shut up.

Exactly.....You bring support bands to warm up the crowd and draw more ticket sales in from the people that come just for the openner.....Picking big names such as Down and Megadeth was genius...if you ask me.

The ironic thing is that if they "go cry more" you will bitch more. Also the irony in that you're crying about them crying and not shutting up.
