That is......f****** awesome. I would have loved to have seen that. We need a big 4 tour, do you know how that kind of turnout would be??? That would very well be the biggest metalhead gathering ever.

I was at this show and Dave did say the Big 4 tour was coming to North American next year. Lars is gonna get smoked everynight by the other drummers, haha. I assume Metallica will be headlining, which means alot of Metalli-teenyboppers are going to get their minds blown when they see some REAL metal bands

I just watched the video, and had to laugh at the Chris Polland reference. I was in the top section, and some drunk guy yelled, "Marty" which was probably funnier.

Chris Poland f***ing rips now. Probably the best and most well rounded leads of Megadeths illustrious line up of axemen. Marty probably takes him, but Poland is currently, far more unique than Marty's pro-pop ass.

I hate the fact that Kerry's playing with that a$$hole. I guess it just says that Slayer is no more, if you're that desperate.

Yes, I know they're touring together, but that doesn't mean Kerry has to actually play with that a$$hole Mustaine.

So, I'm a moron and a big dummy... right, right. And exactly who the f*** are you?
