    Yeah, Graspop! I hope he isn't burnt out by then, seeing it's the last date on the list. :p
    So its just a 4 song concert? Fuck that I'd still go
    He's been working on a bunch of new songs in his home studio apparently so hopefully there'll be a few thrown in that nobody has heard yet. But yeah, even a four song set would be badass...
    It's good to see Newsted back into the shape of things. I will try and see him at Download.
    I was really happy when I saw the bands that would take part of the Download festival this year and saw "Newsted" in the list, hopefully we will see everything what his previous band is now missing in his full scale album. PD: I still thinking they should have 2 guitars in the band tho xD
    There will be, he's hired Staind's Mike Mushok as the second guitarist. There's a vid in one of the previous Newsted posts with Mike jamming with the band. Should be pretty sick.
