  1. I would kill to see Dave Lombardo fill in for Neil. He is amazing, precision player
  2. This seems to be an issue with all big arena shows over the last few years. Too many presales and bots then people don't have a chance when tickets "officially" go on sale. The only band who has gotten it right over the last decade is Iron Maiden. They do paperless tickets that are only available to paying fan club members for the presale. And it's always the better seats that they get first dibs on. It eliminates all the tickets getting gobbled up by the presales and scalpers. It blows my mind that hardly any other bands do this. Especially a band who's reached the status Metallica has. My friend picked up upper decks in the presale. And I thought it was one of those "mediocre tickets for the presale" things. I assumed if I got on right on right at public sale time there would be some lower bowl at least. I like how foo fighters in 2015 did beat the bots and sold the floors and lower levels at a old fashioned wait in line sale. What the bands need to do is stick with the paperless thing to prevent scalping. Garth Brooks did that. I remember 2009 with Green day that floors and lowers could only be picked up day of show to prevent scalping
  3. I was talking about the actualy AFTK record, not the live part
  4. I logged on at sale time to try to buy saskatoon tickets today, even 1. and you couldn't buy any lowers or floor for face other then the stupid $600 Whiplash package. I can't believe the last time they played there in 2004 I only paid $60 for floors, and the cad/usd was horrible at the time. I would NEVER spend $500 to see metallica lol
  5. Saw Anthrax and Killswitch together in Edmonton almost 2 weeks ago. Worked out great that I was in town. Great double Bill, joey still sings amazing. He also came out for Holy Diver with KSE for a finale. Best $60 I spent in a long time
  6. I almost picked up this 4lp set especially considering hearing it was the complete show from different stages that I listened to probably a thousant times since it came out. But reading reviews on stevehoffman it sounds like there may be surface noise issues the 2015 pressing did not have. Anyone own it? Is this true? I don't own this record on vinyl yet and this dilemma is bugging me, I don't know which one to get. Maybe both
  7. I loved thier first band as a kid, even the second one was ok. To listen to it now is embarrassing for me and society. These guys sucked lol
  8. Are any of you guys going to the Petty/Walsh tour? It isn't making it up to here. I was contemplating going down to the Nashville show with a friend, but he doesn't already have tickets and stubhub prices are crazy. I really just desperately want to see Walsh while he's still alive and kicking, Petty, is like whatever. He's good, I've seen his show one ten years ago I wouldn't go out of my way to catch him alone.
  9. I went to garth brooks last night. Show 5 of his 9 Edmonton shows. I have to say I was impressed and very happy we went. I hadn't listened to him in 20 years, I pretty much moved on from country music when I was 10 or 11 years old but his old stuff I still remember all the words. My parents were blown away, it was cool to see how much they enjoyed it. I won't say he is the best singer, or showman ever, but he has written some great music and he has a unique way of connecting with the audience. Even the guy in the furthest nosebleed seat feels like he's playing just for him, and He calls out individual audience members! "That guy way up there in the orange shirt, I see you..... you've been on your feet all night". He played some requests like Turn the Page, and Amarillo by morning, which were highlights for me. A few people were leaving at 10:30 at the start of the encore and he was saying "it's cool if you can't stay past 1030, I love you anyways and thanks for being here tonight". What ego rock star says that? His wife Trisha yearwood does some of her songs halfway through the show, she was great. And the opener, this Karyn Rochelle, really good. This girl could be big, and I say that as someone who generally craps all over "country" music, or whatever it's turned into these days.
  10. I gave it 3. I like it now. But when I was young and transitioning through the catalog and made it to PoW and as soon as I heard the cheesy intro i HATED it in bold. Im glad I came back around to the Pow material because of the clockwork tour because I never gave it a fair shake simply because of how much I hated the intro to BIg Money
  11. Now that I've had my fun..... ZZ Top Slayer Megadeth honorable mention goes to Metallica Tool Van Halen Soundgarden/Cornell Skynard
  12. I have a hard imagining an elevated Rush fan could say that. I'm a long time fan of both, but MD is superior is most ways
  13. I just love Dystopia and Im thrilled MD finally won one
  14. Garth Brooks in Edmonton. Going with Wife and parents, parents are pumped.
