To put it into perspective of why you need more than two:

Europe's land in square miles:
3,930,000

USA's land in square miles:
3,717,813

Europe will have had 11 dates by the end of this tour. Meaning USA should get at least 9 dates if we are gonna make this balanced.
It comes down to population density, moreso than actual land mass. Europe has a bigger population density per capita, thus more people that will come out for the shows. Unfortunately, this directly affects shows like this. They are gonna make people travel for a few dates to guarantee every one of them sells out the biggest places they can manage, rather than do a full sweep. Iron Maiden have adopted the same strategy, sucks, but thems are just the breaks.

That would be awesome. I would think an east coast show would be done in the NYC area, Philly or Boston. I would make that roadtrip doable somehow. None of those places are horribly far from me.

I could a show possibly at Randall's Island, if they want to stick with the whole outdoors/festival approach.

I remember seeing U2 (who yes are huge) playing at a stadium called Fedex field nearby in Landover, MD, which is a stones throw away from Washington, DC. Perhaps we'll get a DC/MD date..one can hope!

I make this same point every time someone in the UK complains that bands only play shows in London. I've given up now. They never understand.

I'm just saying the average American Metallica fan is a radio Metallica fan and they are idiots. They would surely drop $100 for this show.

Then you have your wanna be Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax fan who will go just so they can say they were there. I can see them doing 5 shows and each being a blow out.
