Megadeth Blackmail The Universe Tour
First the Opening Acts were Earshot and 12 Stones.. :sickface:
Then Dave changed his mind and dropped 12 Stones, and Got Exodus for the WEST COAST ONLY :kaioken:

and now...

San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS have secured the opening slot on MEGADETH's "Blackmail the Universe Tour" beginning with the Oct. 25 date in Anaheim, CA. EXODUS were previously announced as the openers for the tour's six West Coast dates, but have now been added to the remainder of the trek. Also appearing on the bill will be the Los Angeles-based quintet EARSHOT.

Commented EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt, "We are getting equal billing with EARSHOT and a fair set time so it will be killer. I have no problem opening this tour. We need to get our asses out there and play for more people and this is just what the doctor ordered! So all of you who do not live on the West Coast make sure to get your asses there early so you don't miss our set. The new MEGADETH is awesome and I'm looking forward to seeing Dave and co. live as it's been a while. And a mega thanks to Dave for doing what so many bands talk about yet never follow through on, taking some old friends out on the road!"

mmm hmmm This is your LAST chanced to see Megadeth, Dave is done with Megadeth.

BeastOfCarrion 2004-10-18 18:06

thats because he is an asshole, if you look at some of the interviews on the DVD, he spends a lot of time winging about former bandmaters

BLS 2004-10-18 22:47

Hes very opinionated.

Asshole? Well then you have to remember some of the previous musicians he worked with...
