[QUOTE=Mario;3937617]Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth US tour dates announced tomorrow. There should be a meadowlands show.[/QUOTE]
Those bands may have pre-sales for their fan clubs. I joined the Metallica
fan club a couple of years ago and they set their folks up with great tickets.
Many concerts have all of the good seats sold before ticketmaster public sales.
[QUOTE=Warfish;3939074]And Metallica...they'd be ok, still a fan. But I've seen them a dozen times already, and they're not exactly changing up the songs/setlists all that much.
I may now be officially too old for Metal. Even classic Metal. Just doesn't do for me what it used to when I was 18.[/QUOTE]
Totally me these days. I got into guitar by first discovering Tallywhacker back in the day, even bought me a bone white Explorer (AWFUL guitar if you ever plan to sit and play). I had the guitar tab books for all of the albums and memorized those friggin' CDs note for note. Saw them a buncha times live with the '89 show at Nassau Coliseum on the "Justice" tour being the sickest. Finally got to the point where if I wanna hear an old Metallica song, I'll just hum it. I still have respect for them, but this bird has flown.
[QUOTE=Timmy®;3939104]I like Death Magnetic as much as Lightning or Justice.[/QUOTE]
As did I, a preety damn solid return to pre-Black Album form (not including the vocals, since Hetfield voice was shot to **** doing the Black Album, drugs, drink and age, and will never be close to what it was then).
But the other bands.....ugh, no. I used to love Anthrax, but can't really listen to them (especially live, where the weak singer/vocals shines through worst) anymore. Slayer...no, beyond "Season in the Abyss", was never really a fan of the founders of "unintelligible vocals" metal. And Megadeth was ok, I spose, but was only really a fan of one album and few select songs here and there.
Metallica/Testament/Iron Maiden/Motorhead, now THAT is a show I;d pay good American coinage to see......[SIZE="1"]in 1989[/SIZE].;)
After High School (my "Metal Years") I got far more into more interesting music, progressive (Floyd) and the like.
Nowadays, I'm rather old school Prog-head of a somewhat common stripe.
Floyd, Radiohead, Black Mountain, Muse, Grateful Dead, moe., Mars Volta, Alice in Chains (a little metal), Metallica (still) and Iron & Wine (freakfolk), plus some newer proggy bands (Comets on Fire, Silversun Pickups (more poppy), Sleepy Sun, etc, etc, etc).
