A good move indeed. I have no interest in a full production of Nostradamus.

Given the choice I'd take Screaming For Vengeance or Painkiller in full but as I've said before, I've never liked the idea of a band playing a whole album start to finish. I liked the Nostradamus album but not enough to go to a tour where they only play that album, it wasn't that good.

Brittish, Screaming, Pain... Anything but Nostradamus. If they're going to anything with Nostrdamus, make a huge production DVD with Liam Neeson as Nostradamus or something over the top like that.

Oz: I would have to agree with you on the album concept. Slayer got away with it, but hey... They're Slayer.

Yeah but Reign In Blood is only twenty eight minutes long so they still have plenty of time in their set to play the other classics. I'll never forgive Iron Maiden for playing A Matter Of Life And Death in full though.

Judas Priest with Liam Neeson would be the most awesome thing in history.

Oz: I believe you've mentioned that (your Maiden dissappointment) before. Slayer had plenty of time left to play a set, but did you see the stage/equipment after dumping 40,000 gallons of blood on it? EPIC!
