Well I was thinking recently what I would do if I won the Mega Millions lottery (you know, the one that regularly gets over $100,000,000), and I thought "hey, why not organize a summer tour along the lines of Mayhem/Ozzfest?" So here's my list. You guys can do whatever you want with yours, but I'm going to organize it like Ozzfest with a second and main stage, and list some sponsors, activities, venues, etc. The order of performance will also be listed with the bands at the bottom being the last ones on.


Second Stage
Battle of the bands winner (there will be a few winners, one for each area of the U.S.- Northeast, southeast, northwest, midwest, etc.)
Rev Theory
36 Crazyfists
Five Finger Death Punch
Drowning Pool
Black Tide
Unearth
Sonata Arctica
Airbourne
Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster
Pennywise
Alestorm
Kiuas
Dethklok
Iced Earth


Main Stage
Graveyard BBQ
Godsmack
Firewind
Rammstein
Symphony X (co-headliner)
Testament (Headliner)


Sponsors
Any beer sponsor that wants in
Jack Daniels
BT-4 paintball guns/supplies (a small paintball field will be set up somewhere with 2 on 2 or 3 on 3 games being played up until the main acts go on)
Neversoft (a guitar hero booth will be set up)
Ibanez (during the 2nd stage acts, people can sign up for a 5 minute slot to play a song or just show off their skills at this booth)
Tama (same thing will happen with the Ibanez booth)
Coca-a-Cola

Venues
The only definite venues on my mind will be the same for the start and end date of the tour- the old Tweeter center (now the Susquehana bank center) in Camden, NJ. I've always wanted to see a tour twice, and this will afford the people in my area the chance to do so. If you purchase tickets to this venue, they will be good for both days.

Zeppelin
The Beatles
Pink Floyd
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Thin Lizzy
Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
Nirvana

I'd have to use more than half the money getting them to raise the dead first though.

Nope, GF's are far more expensive. You don't have to buy a prostitute dinner, jewelry, movies, presents, and other useless crap.

Wait 5 hours
Be accused by the promoter of being late
Get told we have only a 10 minute set
Play pure noise for 10 minutes

Worst and most amusing gig of my life.

Anyone else had this kind of **** happen?!

Dimebag had a worse gig.

It must be nice having massive amounts of free time like that.

Jaded TS is jaded. You gotta find the right girl, that's the problem. As for making a hypothetical tour, I CBF

You could buy one with all that money, though!

But the bands would be so thankful, that they'd be willing to make less money.

Not to mention that I could sell tickets starting at $800 for nose bleed seats, so I'd make my money back for raising the dead.

Then what do you make of this chick that makes me lunches, prefers watching pirated movies online, hates jewelry, and gets mad if I spend more than twenty bucks on a birthday gift?

If anything, she saves me money. She's always yanking out my debit card before I leave so I don't spend any money on anything unnecessary like Guacamole Bacon Cheese Burgers from Carl's Jr

But you didn't factor in the dead raising tax. It applies to every time you raise dead. But when you raise dead all at a time you only pay dead raising tax once. The dead raising tax is $27,486,293.71

I eat my feelings.


I probably wouldn't assemble that many bands together considering how diverse and far apart my favorites are in both time period and genre.

I think I'd just put Glenn Branca up on stage with Chan Marshall and see what we will see. Be mighty entertaining.
