Slayer and Megadeth Treat Metal Fans To High Energy Concert Friday Night

The Jagermeister Music tour treated heavy metal fans to ear-splitting performances Friday night by Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. Slayer seemed to have the most fans, but each band received an enthusiastic greeting.

Anthrax was really good, Megadeth was awesome, Slayer was incredible! I’d describe Slayer’s performance as a musical B-52 strike! Those guys don’t mess around at all when it comes to metal, and we got a full dose!
What a stunning performance it was, for us old dudes and kids alike.

My first time seeing Anthrax & Slayer sense I missed the Clash Of The Titans tour in 1991. It was great seeing Megadeth’s stage set props that I got to see in December 1990 and and again on the 20th anniversary of Rust In Pice. Megadeth was professional & flawless. Slayer was LOUD if now LOUDER as they mad the arena concrete vibrate. Slayer also played faster than I’ve ever herd them play.I was just amazed with Slayer’s drummer being able to play that fast all through their set.
I saw that guy in the wheelchair crowd surfing. I was like did I just see what I just saw? I did and it was happening. I still can’t believe I witnessed this moment in a live metal concert. BEST CROWD SURFER EVER! I noticed he has a Slayer shirt on, so Slayer fans are extreme even though this was during Megadeth.
Megadeth was my favorite band of the night!

I’m glad the guy got to crowd surf, I would hate being a metalhead confined to a wheelchair. Im in one of the pictures up there and I was definitely cheering on the almighty MEGADETH!!!! What an amazing show all around.

Great show by all three bands! Slayer rules! I was at Clash of Titans in 1991 and this show was even more brutal! Keep in mind I’m 55 and saw Led Zeppelin in 1970. Been rockin ever since. I want to thank the girl from Columbia at Follies who gave me a great lap dance before the show at a local strip club! She rules also!

Awesome show…Anthrax was totally extreme playing old school tunes like Metal Thrashing Mad, Madhouse and AIR (Anti-social totally rocked).

Megadeth was AMAZING…what a lineup…they’re were freaking PERFECT.

Slayer is SLAYER! So fast and so awesome…

Best show I’ve seen in a LONG time…
