Lars has said there's not going to be a big tour or anything, but some sporadic shows are to be expected.

I'm pretty sure they'll do a full-blown tour. Maybe not 20-30 dates, but a good amount more than the 2 they will have done.

I would guess they will do a few shows spaced out like this. I don't expect any sort of tour. They ratchet up the demand by doing it this way. I don't know if they would fill stadiums like this is they were hitting every major market, so this is more bang ($$) for their effort. But it sucks for all those people on the east coast who travelled out to CA to find out about this a week or so later.

I hope they play more shows, the US is a great market and almost every city they play in they sell out no problem so it would be def a money maker but also an event that could be so memrable to some metal fans. bring this nationwide!!!

I see they're hitting the big cities. Los Angeles, New York. Chicago and Houston, or Phoenix would probably be next on their agenda.

I hope they make a stop in Canada..New York isn't that far of a drive but like mentioned above. I do not want to travel to N.Y then find out they will make a Canadian appearance.

What a fvckin scam....though certainly would never put it past em, as you know the sh**allica management is calling the shots in the interest of generating maximum $$$

meanwhile the poor suckers are flapping all over creation to indulge this insidious marketing 'strategy'....transparent as an empty glass vessel...a fvcking rip-off, a goddamned two-bit SCAM

I've seen Slayer twice and I'm seeing megadeth for a second time in august, so there is absolutely no reason for me to go to this

I saw Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax in october and Metallica twice before. I'm sure the small show in oct was way better than some huge stadium would be.
