Megadeth drummer, Shawn Drover, has checked in with the following update from Paris:

"After 2 subsequent 15 plus hour drives, finally arriving here in Paris, France late in the day, the LAST thing I wanted to do was to go on any sight-seeing excursion - My brain is just too BBQ at the moment, so I opted to just slowly settle in and then go for a short walk (with Willie Gee, which is always entertaining for me, esp. if we stop to get any kind of food - those of you who know Willie, know exactly what I am talking about) Anyways, it was a nice afternoon, and as I write this, I am contemplating either going for another short walk, or just watching 30 Rock episodes until I fall into silent slumber - It's a toss-up, believe me.

"I have been reflecting on this current 'Priest Feast' European tour, and in all honesty, speaking for myself, this has been a career highlight for me on so many different levels. We all get along so well on this tour - Bands, crews, right down to the awesome catering, it has just been a very smooth tour for me. In my 5th year in Megs, at this point I have really seen and done alot of great things, though I constantly remind myself how lucky I am to be able to do what I was put on this planet to do, and not get jaded about it or take it for granted. The way the economy has been and knowing that old friends of mine are struggling in their respective fields, it does put thing's in perspective, believe me.

"3 shows remain on this tour, and I will make the most of it. That I can assure you."

Here are Megadeth's upcming tour dates:

Mar. 21 Paris, France - Zenith de Paris
Mar. 22 Brussels, Belgium - Forest National
Mar. 23 Amsterdam, Netherlands - Heineken Music Hall
Apr. 07 Los Angeles, CA - Club Nokia
