Megadeth -- Phoenix, AZ -- November 6th, 2010

*I'm gonna have to write the "official" review seperately, but this is more of a personal story (along with the set list of course)*

Wow I haven't been on this website in a while. Even had to reset my password just to get in.

Anyway, so on Thursday, my friend Chad asked me the coolest thing anyone has ever asked. He goes, 'Hey man, I have an extra ticket to the Megadeth show in Phoenix and no one to go with. Do you want to go?' I was like fuck yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So we left LA at 9 AM, just stopped twice on the way for gas and food and were doing 80 almost all the way through. Got to the venue by 3 o' clock and found the right entrance by 3.30. It wasn't a long wait at all, specially because we met my buddy who lives in Phoenix itself. He had saved a spot for us. They patted us down at 5 o clock and let us in at 5.30.

Megadeth went on at 7 o clock. NO OPENING BANDS. Fucking beautiful. When I saw the Endgame stage setup, I knew they weren't gonna do RIP in entirety. Add to that the fact that I saw cameras and stage mics, which meant we were being filmed. The camera guy took plenty of shots of me going mental, plus I got Shawn Drover's wrist band at the end and after that a lady walked up to me with Dave Mustaine's white wrist band and goes, 'Here, I think you want this'. And of course I took it gleefully. Fucking flipped out crazy when they did "Wake Up Dead", "Angry Again" and "Sweating Bullets", and enjoyed every minute of the show in general. Front row and center. Best Megadeth show of my life.
FYI the ticket price was just 24 bucks each for the GA floor, all fees included.

My pictures from the show (not professional this time but still some of them came out great since I had such a good spot):

Woo Wake Up Dead! I wish my friends would ask me to go to shows for free.

Also, glad to see you around here again, Andrew. I missed your show reviews.

COMPLETELY AGREE dude. Apparently Andrew Metalhead doesn't know enough Megadeth...Risk start to finish? Come on. Megadeth has a huge repetoire. Here's some songs I really think they should rotate into their set more:

The Conjuring
High Speed Dirt
99 Ways To Die
The Skull Beneath The Skin
Mary Jane
Hook In Mouth
Kick The Chair
Train Of Consequences
Elysian Fields
Architecture Of Agression
Last Rites/Loved To Deth (GREAT opener I think)
My Last Words
Take No Prisoners
Rust in Peace..Polaris

There is no reason to always give us the hits and the crowd favorites. I mean keep those in there to please the new fans, but throw in some gems to keep everything fresh and interesting. We all know it man, if we heard something like Last Rites/Loved to Deth at a show, we'd all be buggin out and going nuts!!

Sarcasm, bro. He's just logical enough to realize that Dave would never do that. If they put "Looking Down the Cross" in their set for a whole tour I'm pretty sure most of us would have eargasms, but what are the chances of that these days?
