Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has posted a tour report online as the band touch down in Britain as part of the "Priest Feast" tour. You can check it out below:

"Well, we are back on English soil, and our British tour manager got out of the bus yesterday morning and kissed the ground, and I asked him if he did, and he said, 'It’s been eight years since I have been on English soil.' I thought that was killer, except it was snowing and he had to stick his face into the slushy street slop to kiss the ground.

"I remember seeing the Pope do that once and I thought surely that has gotta burn, when he kissed the tarmac on an airstrip in a trip over to the states many years ago.

"Anyway, Chris (Broderick) and I were at dinner last night and we finally saw one of the Judas Priest guys, but he was with his family, maybe siblings or friends, and we decided not to bother him. So we just sat and eat red meat, and talked about guitars!

"For those of you that want to have the opportunity to meet us, we have a small drawing of 10 people from each city we play in of MegaFanClub (MFC) members, although this doesn’t always mean that there are ten people there. It also means that in some cities, the drawing will be random – for example; Los Angeles has several hundred MFC members, and that will be a drawing versus a city where there are only ten MFC members in the first place.
Having said that, it has been great to see you again at the meet and greets; they are fun for us too ya know!

"I’ll be praying that you’ll all have the best times of your life coming up this year. I know we in the land of "All-Things-Mega!" are having our best year so far, for a long time now, too!

"As I mentioned to the MFC, today I am going to start singing at the hotel and dressing room at the gig to lay down ideas for the vocal track for the first song I have completed lyrics assigned to. It is a song called ‘1,320.’

"Well, that’s it for now.

"Thanks for checking in and if I don’t see you on this tour, try me with the widget or TheLiveLine. By the way, TheLiveLine is getting ready to do some internal launches, and we have a tremendous surprise for all of the fan club members.

"If you are a just registered user here at the Megadeth Forums, and not a MFC member, don’t worry, either TheLiveLine will be open soon enough for you to browse like the rest of the public, or you can just stand-by until we are ready to officially launch.

"Stay tuned, and we will tell you all when you can get into TheLiveLine using your MFC membership names and numbers. Yes, that is correct, we are going to give all of the MFC members a free membership for a short period of time, maybe even as long as a whole month access, so that you can come into this new information entertainment portal, see who we have acquired for our talent.

"You can even suggest your own talent for TheLiveLine; and we know how discriminating your tastes are, so we wanted your feedback before we go live.
Just remember that we are still in beta mode, and we are only using MFC members, my friends, or friends of TheLiveLine for outside critique.

"Stay tuned, because not only are your autographed Megadeth MegaFanClub photos soon to be on their way – if you haven’t already received it – but we will also be telling you when you can access TheLiveLine and start surfing around, checking out anything that may need to be fixed, and of course we welcome your informed suggestions.

"And as usual, check back here regularly; you can also email Scott Holmen at scott@theliveline.com to get updates. Scott is one of our executive staff, a good friend, and he has been there since the first moment; he is definitely going to be available to talk to you soon.

"Have a great day, and it won’t be long until you can roll up your sleeves and help me and TLL."
