Gigantour 2013 featuring Megadeth, Black Label Society, HellyeaH, Newsted, and more!

Hello me its nice talking to myself... Yesterday Megadeth brought their Gigantour through Washington. The Comcast Arena in Everett was a change from the norm as far as venues go. The show kicked off early and on a tuesday afternoon. First up was old school Metallica Guitarist Jason Newsted. Back from a short hiatus from the tour due to a case of pneumonia, Newsted set the show off right. Tracks off their upcoming album "Heavy Metal Music" (Due out next week) graced the set list along with "Whiplash" for all the old Tallica' fans! 

 

HellyeaH were up next and feeling it, they definitely had the most energy of the night. Frontman Chad Grey always delivers. Seems the older he gets the higher he jumps. Hellyeah's set both looked and sounded great... which is a lot more than I can say for Device.

 

Black Label Society had me entertained with their light show but they may just be because there actually was one... I just cant get over how bad Device was. I mean I didn't expect them to be good but they dropped the ball on all counts. Anyway, back to Black Label. During Zakk Wylde's guitar solos I couldn't help but wish I was watching Dime up there. 

 

Onto Megadeth! Props to whoever designed their stage show. Ive never been much a fan of stage smoke but they did it the best I've ever seen. The smoke rolled in low across the stage as the intro played. Visually, the whole first song was like something out of a movie or music video. On the other hand the audio was a little to good to be true... Mustaine seems to be getting a little help these days but hey, at lease they're still going strong and stealing the show!
