Mandalay Bay: Megadeth at House of Blues Dec 6!
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: metal forever or bust megadeth comments: 6
Metal icons Megadeth will be bringing their incredible brand of precision fury to the south seas themed (?) Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on Thursday December 6, 2012.
For those who don't know, Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine is one of the creators of the genre known as thrash metal while playing with Metallica before they got huge. In the ensuing 30 years (has it really been that long?) Mustaine has carved a unique path through the heavy metal landscape, and leaving Metallica in the dust.
Yeah, he's a different guy now... a bit more Ted Nugent and a whole lot less Lemmy, and his once progressive political views have gone all the way around to ultra conservatism, but as long as he keeps his mouth on the lyrics and fingers on the fretboard, we'll continue to love him.
This year, Megadeth will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their "Countdown to Extinction" LP by performing the disc in its entirety. Aaaaaaawesome!
