King Diamond is going to play the album Abigail in full. Pretty weird lineup too. They have Mulatu Atstake, who was REALLY old when I saw him play nearly 10 years ago and is considered the grandfather of African jazz. He's a mallet player who brought jazz to Ethipoia like 50 or 60 years ago... and they list him between Neurosis and Carcass!!! Ahahaha
The lineup inspired me to listen to Wizard Rifle, which was alright too. I might swallow my hatred for Vegas and go. :D
Maybe we can get a forum metal contingent to meetup in Vegas and go to the show? Skeptical metalheads?


I have been listening to a lot of Baroness recently. Is anyone else listening to these guys? I recommend the Purple album.

Maiden live was a revelation for me.  I went to their Detroit show during the "No Prayer on the Road" tour.  I was aware of Maiden, but was firmly in my "love of thrash metal" phase.  Anthrax was the opening act.  I went for Anthrax.  By the end of the show I realized that I was a dummy for not owning every Iron Maiden record I could get my hands on.

The same thing happened to me with Megadeth.  I thought they were okay, but liked Metallica, Slayer, Testament, Anthrax etc...etc...far more.  Then I went to the Clash of the Titans tour.  Megadeth played last that night.  CRUSHED the performance of every other band.  Everyone else sounded like they were going through the motions their PA was being filtered through wet sponges in comparison.  Megadeth was tight, crystal clear, blisteringly fast and Mustaine's musicianship was ridiculous.
Well.  There it is.

In San Bernardino, CA. I got the most expensive at $99, but with fees and such, factor in another $25...

Also this show has Ghost, Kamelot, and Exodus!

Neat!
I have the opportunity to go in Arizona, but don't think I'll make the 6 hour drive since I already drove that far to see them in San Francisco last year. Maybe I'll try to snag a ticket for LA...

I'm going to Baltimore. That's about 4 hours for me. I'll drive that distance to see them. Never have, always wanted to. And sevenfold and volbeat just make it that much better.

ETA - not metal but told the wife u2 is in Philly this summer. She doesn't want to spend the money but don't know if we'll ever get this chance again. They are $300 per ticket, which I'd pay for u2.
