That's just how some tours go. Does it really matter who headlines? Im sure most people who would attend these shows would know Testament, Anthrax and Overkill well enough and not care who headlines. If you went to this show I doubt you would care if Testament headlined over Anthrax.
We all know Death Angel will open, after that I could careless about the order of the bands.

If this were a European tour, Testament would headline. Just sayin'.

It does matter who headlines because the band that headlines is gonna play for 70 minutes and the bands that don't are only gonna play 30-40 minutes. Personally I hope Anthrax headlines because I've never seen them before and if they only played for a half hour we'd get a very typical set like:

Caught in a Mosh
Got the Time
Madhouse
Among the Living
Antisocial
Indians
I Am the Law

Would be awesome if this turns out to be a US tour

Also, there is no way in hell Anthrax doesn't headline this. First off all, despite all the drama the last few years they're still more popular and have more name recongnition to the manjority of metal fans than Overkill and Testament. Second, with Belladonna back there is no fuckin way they are not gonna draw good crowds to see them.

Let's not forget these things in the US usally go by album sales. Anthrax has like five gold certified albums, while Overkill and Testament have a grand total of zero.

I could see Testament headlining. If they do headline, Anthrax would definitely play right before them with a decent set length.. Testament headlined roughly the same size venue in 2008 that Anthrax did in 2005-ish. They both got some publicity from American Carnage, but Anthrax has really been in the spotlight from the Big 4 shows. Also, Scott Ian has been EVERYWHERE.

I really don't care who headlines so long as each band gets a decent set time.

Yeah, I'll be there for that but I probably won't go. The only thrash bands I care about are the Big 4 and Testament.

Yep Manks pretty much said what I was going to. Big 4 name recognition alone would get Anthrax headlining which I'd be ok w/. Please god let this be relatively close to me. Killer bands. Would be more killer if it was '87 but I wasn't thrashing much as a 4 year old. Can't wait!!!!
