He did a makeup show dude, he just wanted to make sure that everyone had the best time possible. I agree that the prices for those shirts are ridiculous, but don't put everything on Dave.

$35 is what almost every major band charges for shirts. It's not like it's just Megadeth.

T-shirt prices, much like concert tickets aren't up to the band at all. I think sometimes people overestimate how much control a band has over stuff like that. If no one in the band has an buisness or marketing experience there's really no need for them to get involved with such things.

I understand why you would be pissed that the show got canceled, I would be to. But can you really put the blame on Mustaine? Didn't some fan spill their drink on the soundboard and that's how the sound got fucked? If that story is true this is hardly Mustaine's fault. Plus, if any band goes on stage and the sound if fucked up and the crowd can't hear it clearly, and more importantly the band can't hear what they're playing what exactly are you suppose to do in that situation? I'm just thinking of this as a rare isolated incident. Megadeth doesn't have the reputation of starting a show and walking off stage without finishing. This isn't Axl Rose here though they both are completely dicks. I've never known Megadeth to not finish a show though. Something must've really been wrong is all I can say.

Also Mustaine didn't become "born again" until the early 2000s. That can't be blamed for him not playing the older stuff. He had that problem long before he found religion.

Actually the thrown water bottle didn't happen to 90 min after Testament ended and after megadeth walked off stage the 1st time and didn't say why. Megadeth did 2 soundchecks and after an hour of no word the people did get restless. I heard one incident when the bass got really loud for 3 seconds and that was it. It was manageable. To send people home and not fix it then was Dave being Dave. People were chanting Dave's a faggot and he got pissed and refused to come back out.

Props to Rams Head for offering people like me who refused to go back the next night a free ticket to any future show. I got to see Exodus and Testament and another show rather than some egomaniac who thinks he's the best musician on the planet.

As far as $35 for a short sleeved shirt, I've never seen that before in my life.

I doubt that you know the whole story, and the "Dave's a faggot" people aren't helping. How do you know he was there to be pissed? I bet he was out of there pretty quickly.

Also, I don't think the Ram's Head are the people to thank for the free ticket...you just are a bit angry at Megadeth.

The word on the Megadeth board is that the first sound board went bad during Testament and the replacement sound board was fried by the thrown drink. The long wait between Testament and Megadeth was due to replacement of the first sound board and testing of the second. When the second board got fried, the show was over.

Also, every concert shirt that I have bought in the last 5 years has been $35. The only exception was Mastodon in '06.

Regaurdless of when the water bottle incident happened, do you really think it's Dave's fault that their were sound issues and they couldn't finish the show? Since when is fixing the soundboard his job? It sounds like they waited as long as they could and the band and the venue did the best they could with the situation. I don't believe that it was Dave's responisibility to adress the crowd as to what was going on. That semms more like a job for one of the roadies or other stage personel that work the show. I love how since Mustaine is an asshole everyone blames him for everything if something goes wrong. Since he's a jackass everything bad that happens involving the band is obviously his fault right? If he was a good guy no one would think this sound issue was his fault at all, but since he's not all the blame get passed to him. Which really isn't fair to him. Sometimes things just happen that are out of your control and I think this is one of those times.

Like I said before Megadeth is not known for walking off stage and not finishing shows. So this to me is just one of those rare ocassions where something odd happened and that's all it is. Don't try to read more into it the situation than what it was.

Also, I don't know what shows you're going to but most major bands do charge $35 a shirt i've seen it numerous times myself.
