    I've been waiting since I picked up Super Collider for this to come out. To know I only have 12 hours and 8 minutes left is a pretty great feeling.
    I swear I will be pissed if Dave did vocal overdubs like on Rust in Peace Live, Big 4, and various other live releases.
    Here's the thing. All of those were when he was fighting to continue playing in E standard. I just recently saw them live with Iron Maiden and they play all D standard and it sounded incredible. He is much more comfortable with it and you can tell. Sweating Bullets in particular sounded incredibly heavy in D.
    The concerts took place last year so it should sound the same.
    Actually Megadeth started playing in D from late 2011 and the trailer is in D so it's gonna be heavy.
    i cant wait for this ive been waching alot of live footage from 2013 and i must say dave is singing alot better then he did in 2011 and 2012, he was fighting to star in E tuning along with singing with a cyst on his vocal chords and going through neck surgery so i must say to still have him on stage at 52 is a blessing to metal
    Foreclosure of a Dream! In your face, everyone who thinks Dave Mustaine can't sing!
    I love these "full album" shows, they are for the real fan. I saw the Rust in Peace/Seasons in the Abyss show. Sick. Dave can still play.
    ive been so impressed with this dvd so far in the big four and rust in peace 20th and 2011-2012 basically daves voice wa shaving trouble but songs like this was my life, forclosure, along with the rest of the album so far daves done a fantastic job
    They didnt play it in alphabetical order live, they played it in album order. I highly doubt the live release is going to be cut up and put in alpha order
    The setlist is in alphabetical order. They have a lot of confidence in their material. This looks awesome.
    Sadly, the sound quality of this recording isnt worthy to be an official release, sound like a bootleg audience recording. Don't known about the DVD Version.
