Due to unforeseen circumstances I missed the opening acts, so I can't comment on them.

The set list was as follows (as I can remember, not 100% sure about the songs or the order):

Sleepwalker
Take no Prisoners
Wake Up Dead
Washington Is Next!
Kick The Chair
In My Darkest Hour
Hangar 18
Gears Of War
A Tout Le Monde
Tornado of Souls
Never Walk Alone
Symphony Of Destruction
Trust
Peace Sells
Burnt Ice
Holy Wars

This was a great show. I have no complaints about the set list, it mixed the old classics with songs from the newest album. Unfortunately the sound quality was so/so, I've heard better. That's only a minor nitpick though. Dave was in great shape, his voice sounded good and he nailed every solo, I've had doubts about his playing in the past but he erased all of them today.

Chris Broderick was the one who impressed me the most though, the guy has been in the band for 3 weeks and he played all the solos note for note from the albums, Including Hangar 18 and Tornado of Souls! He missed a few notes here and there but for 2 weeks this is incredible, I just wish I'd seen them later on in the tour instead so he has time to really nail everything.

The newest album itself is fantastic, I'd say it's almost up to the level of Rust in Peace, and if you haven't checked it out yet, do so now!
So, final words: If you have a chance to see Megadeth this tour you really should. They'll put on a hell of a show, I'll vouch for it.

Wow! Must have a great show, atleast the playlist seems super! blink.gif IMO with lucretia it would have been perfect.

It was monday or sunday, when they were in helsinki, and I'm really bummed that I missed them there, but maybe next time. sad.gif

Was Dave using his new Angel of Death?

Yep, he used three different guitars, one of them being the Angel of Deth, and it looked great.
