obviously, f*** the dates, because dozens of areas in North America are left in the dust, including my very own Florida, but my biggest gripe is the bands.

MEGADETH, MOTORHEAD, VOLBEAT, AND LACUNA COIL...AND THATS IT. Thats not a Gigantour, that's regular f***ing tour. I would still go for the first three bands alone, but still, thats false advertising.

So after hearing Lulu and Thirteen, is it fair to say that at the end of the day, Megadeth won?

I finally believe the end of the world will be in 2012. How do I know? Megadeth has just outsold Metallica. Enjoy the rapture.

You guys have to come to South Florida. I see you every time you're here, and the last 2 times I saw you (Big 3 and Mayem Festival), you weren't headlining, which is crap because you were kicking a$$ when Disturbed and Godsmack were shooting spitballls in middle school. So I want to see Megadeth where they belong, in the headlining spot. Plus I want to see Motorhead, good choice.
