"Nightwish" would be a perfect addition... their music would fit in well and having seen them live in concert before, they were far better than words can describe... to top it off, they did an excellent "Megadeth" cover with the bassist singing.

The only bands that's worth seeing is Fear Factory and maybe Dream Theater.

Dream Theater and Megadeth are definitely worth going for, and I hear Symphony X is pretty good, but they should end it there because the other bands on the tour are nu-metal or nu- metal sounding, and by that I mean that they have horrible musicianship, for example- no solos, all songs sound alike because singers growl for the reason that they can't write decent lyrics and so on.

Symphony X and Nevermore will be the best bands on this tour (followed closely by Dream Theater).

I am getting rather excited now. I am in Houston TX, didnt get to go to their tour last year as they (Dream Theater) didnt come here. This year me and a buddy vowed to go wherever. Last time I checked, the Corpus Christi show was the 3rd on gigantour.com. Now I cant access their site from my browser so I need to wait till tommorow to check that out. If they did move the Corpus Christi show, which I was planning on going to, to the 4th leaving the 3rd open, perhaps they have plans to squeeze Houston or San Antonio in there, meaning much closer to me! So excited!

The line-up looks awesome I just wish they would of added some extra bands like: Hall and Oates, Stryper, Lionel "Hot Stache" Richie, Eddy Money, ABBA, Captain and Tenneal, Barbara Streisand, Bjork, Melissa Etheridge, Terrance Trent Darby, Cinderella, The Bee Gees, Clay "F***ing" Aiken, Charlotte Church, and comedian Gallagher for laughs in between main and second stage!

I can't wait... I never would have thought I would get to see Megadeth, Symphony X, and Nevermore on the same bill. AWESOME.

I can't wait for the tour, I just hope the new megadeth line-up rules because I haven't heard of them before. I especially hope the guitarist rules because he has the big shoes of Marty Friedman (My favorite former Megadeth member) to fill.

Dry Kill Logic tore it up last time I saw them here in Chicago. This might be a good tour, Dillinger Escape Plan is good too. I wouldn't mind seeing Megadeth and Dream Theater either.

Dream Theater is the greatest band of all time and they will continue to be forever. They have musicianship that is unrivaled. Megadeth is my second favorite band and I thank god Dave Mustaine was fired from Metallica because he created a rival band that kicks Metallica's ass. I was a big Metallica fan back when they were metal, but Megadeth has always ruled.
