Tickets were about 60 bucks. Crazy expensive, but at least I want to see all 3 bands for a change, so that makes it a better value, plus my wife wanted to go really bad and agreed to make this her birthday present. It's our first time seeing Metallica since the Summer Sanitarium tour back in... 2000 I think? We caught one of the shows where James hurt his back and couldn't play, so they came back for a free follow-up show. So we've seen them 1.75 times before.

I've never seen Down or The Sword, but I'm looking forward to it. I expect the smell of cannabis will be in the air during both bands. I'm debating whether to try to sneak my mp3 player in and tape the show. Not sure how tight the security is at the Pepsi Center.

Metallica puts on a good show. I'm not a big fan of their last several albums, but they play enough from the first 4 to keep it interesting. The Sword and Down round out a nice line-up.

I'm cheap though. I refuse to pay that much to see a concert.

We really wanted to see AC/DC too, but their tickets are like $100. Ridiculous.

:lol:

Their act never changes either. Angus does a striptease and moons the crowd every time.

I can't think of a single band that I would pay more than $50 to see. If I had a time machine, that would be different.

Both Neil Young and Jimmy Buffett the cheapest ticket I saw online (cause they both sold out immediately) was still over $200.. Absolutely insane.

Good show. All 3 bands put on a good performance. Metallica played a lot more of their new material than I expected - 5 songs off Death Magnetic. Only drawbacks were being far away in a big arena, and the Pepsi Center sounds like crap. I would definitely reconsider before spending a lot of money to see a good band there again. One of the worst-sounding venues I've been to in a long time. When the singers talked between songs you could understand about every third word. Just muddy as hell.

I'll be seeing Down again next weekend, but they will be without Metallica. I've seen them 3 times, and it's still not enough...I just kinda hope I don't have to watch that hour-long intro video again.

I haven't paid more than $50 for tickets to a show, but with plane costs and all to see Atheist a few years ago in Baltimore, I more than eclipsed the $25 show price. As far as paying more than $50 for actual tickets, I'm paying a total of $230 (two 3-day passes, one for me and one for the lady) for the two-day Maryland Deathfest in May to see Atheist, Pestilence, Bolt Thrower, Mayhem, Marduk, and Swallow the Sun, among a plethora of other bands I, for the most part, don't care to see.

That would qualify as an exception to the rule. I'm jealous. I also like Naplam Death, Enslaved, Asphyx, Keep Of Kalessin and Immolation on that bill. For Atheist alone, I might spend more than $50.

Thanks! :grin:

Even bester news is at the end of the year my work will reimburse me for most education expenses.. So if I can come up with a way to pay for tuition I get the money paid back to me. Sorta-free education!

I'm surprised Metallica took them on the road after all the crap Phil Anselmo spewed about them over the years. I wasn't impressed with his shtick at all at the KC show.

He's a lot different than he was 10 years ago. I've met him a few times, and he's never drunk whereas he used to ALWAYS be in the tank. What did he do in KC? I haven't heard...

Phil was way more with it at this show, and it was good to see. The last time we saw him was in Dallas with Superjoint, and that show was bad bad bad! Phil was completely stoned/drunk out of his mind and could barely mumble along and stagger around the stage.

I remember that when Load came out and they cut their hair, Phil thanked Metallica for making Pantera the #1 metal band in the world now. :lol:

My son turns 1 today! Has it been a year already? When we named him Cam(eron) we had no idea that it would be such a popular name for Blues players a year later. Should we get him a Janssen or Paddock jersey for his birthday? :wink:

Being the good grandson that I am, I decided to take my grandma to lunch today...and then swing by the property we purchased so she could see it since she hadn't yet.

When we got out there, I saw that the power lines had been put up, the ground for the basement has been excavated and they were in the process of pouring concrete for the foundation!

Woo Hoo!

That was a nice surprise. I assumed since I hadn't heard anything in a week, that nothing was currently being done.
Things are starting to move a little quicker now...finally. :okman:
