Dave Mustaine about Youthanasia 20th Year Anniversary Tour

That's what he posted on his official facebook account:

Quote:
Droogies,

For those of you that were unable to attend or to hear, see, or read any of the answers from our first press conference in Latin America, I have something to share with you.

October 31, 1994 is the official release date of Youthanasia. The rumor that we are doing a 20th anniversary concert is a dreadful situation and as soon as I found out that this tour was presented to you, the fans - the brilliant Megadeth fans around the world that know how to read a calendar and know it ain't 20 years until 20 years have gone by - as the 20th Anniversary of Youthanasia, I told all of the interviews I did leading up to our arrival, that it was a terrible mistake and we have parted ways with the persons responsible.

Now I know that doesn't help that you have been told one thing and we are telling you another, but you know me and you know Megadeth: we are going to make this right. We scrambled to get all four of us, who live very far apart (Shawn lives in Georgia), and we chose four songs to play for you until the real anniversary comes after October 31st. [NOTE: We specifically released Youthanasia on Halloween, and I may have slept in late today, but it ain't Halloween yet.]

Besides having to get everyone in the same place, we also had to develop the live production and the video content that goes along with it. So, to make a long story boring...we started with "A Tout Le Monde" in Las Vegas, added "Reckoning Day" in Tucson, and added "Youthanasia" to Quito.

Depending on how long our stage time in Santiago is will determine our set list. You can count on if it is 75 minutes (which I think it is), we will make sure to play as much of the Youthanasia songs as we can. Rest assured that we are aware of the rumor, we took action, and that whatever songs we play, that we will play our very best for you.

Please don't take this out on the promoters down here. We have explained this to them, and they have been very understanding, although I know we are all disappointed that this rumor even started, and it being too late to fix all the ads, I promise to give you all the best Megadeth show to date this tour.

Love and bruises,

Dave Mustaine

Pretty good news, huh?

That would be cool. Any of the deeper cuts from Youthanasia would be awesome though. My personal choice would be Elysian Fields, but any of them would be good... Addicted to Chaos, The Killing Road, Family Tree... seriously any of them. While you're at it, forget how to play A tout le monde -- worst song on the album.

Actually just listening to songs now... I forgot how much I absolutely just loved the fuck out of that album when I was 15 or so. I still remember 95% of the lyrics and I haven't listened to it in years probably.

Leave it to Dave to be picky about when 20 years is 20 years


of course in 2010 they started 20 years a little early with the Rust in Peace tour since the album itself wasn't released until September of 1990

Oh Dave you silly goose

However, once November shows up, won't we fans have a legit gripe for them to do the full album?

Pssssshhhht.... Youthanasia?! If he were smart they should've never released Super Collider and done a So Far, So Good... So What! 25th Anniversary Tour last year instead.

PS: A Tout Le Monde is a beer/piss break song at best and I never need to hear it again.

It's good news (although I think from the last couple of setlists we'd all already pieced it together) so long as they keep doing it beyond the South American tour.

Why wouldn't they? It's a great album and barely any of it gets played.

Seriously, Youthanasia = the jam.

Victory as 1st encore or GTFO
