Hmmmmm....well, still pretty "crazy" pairing and TOUR if you ask me. "Jumpy." Like how the "Christianity" aspect plays into it in that they skip the Bible Belt! Not that they would be the big fan-base anyway but missing majors in the "rust belt?" Kinda odd. Also, why is it that "Los Angeles" is the only city without a state listed?!? Prejudice, I say! What, like they are going to play Denver, MO? Perhaps Dallas, WV?
Damn. Completely forgot about the Christianity angle. You've got a point there, JD. That and, well, both they and the Scorps are riding the gravy train right now.
Speaking of which! This oddball concert won't only happen in Inglewood, Guids! The rest of the tour dates had just been posted!

@vail.... I've always hated Megadeth but at least thier mind set in 1985 "WAS" thrash but today? They pee sitting down.
Doesn't make any sense to me that they try and be thrash...multi millionaires like Metallica as well trying to play thrash,especially nowadays Dave Mustard & Bass guitarist Dave E. being heavily involved with Christianity. No offense to christians on the board here of course but you know what I'm getting at.
Thrash belongs underground being played by artists who are pissed off singing about subjects that usually are not accepted by people with christian beliefs and that are not rich.
The scene - fanbase of metalheads in the early to mid 80's were probably over 90% non christians. It's like death and black metal too....it's just the way it is.
