Very cool review! Great to keep reading reviews that say FSlayer is tearing ass on this tour. Can't wait till Lowell.

Dude, that tour was sweet. Saw that tour in Poughkeepsie, NY. Absolute chaos. Remains the most intense show I've ever been to.

I didn't think Unearth was a bad opener but yeah, most of the crowd didn't seem to care.

My first Slayer show was only a couple of years ago in Portland and I ended up sitting by a whole family that had a couple of young girls. I had always heard Slayer crowds were crazy but that didn't seem to be the case

Slayer crowds now compared to how they were when I first started going to shows are more of a controlled crazy. They'll mosh, have a good time, scream the lyrics, maybe even drink one too many beers, but not get too out of hand.

Back in the day it was complete chaos. Fights, drunk people vomiting in the pit, throwing shit on stage, leaping off balconies, wrecking the bathroom, booing opening bands off the stage. It was kind of fun to see, but annoying if it got too close to you and impacted your enjoyment of the show.

I'm probably just getting old, but I prefer watching Slayer today and not worrying as much about getting puked on or punched in the back of the head by some drunk skinhead who thinks he's moshing.

Thanks for the info.

Can anyone that has been to this tour confirm if 4arm was selling CDs at their merch table? I saw them open for Testament and really liked them, but they were sold out of CDs. They're also impossible to find online at a reasonable price. (I refuse to pay for mp3s.)

Yeah, it was a really, really bad idea to leave the chairs on the floor of the Omni for the Clash of the Titans date in Atlanta in 1991. I've never seen such frightened security guards as when a half-basketball-arena sized pit broke out and the chairs had to go somewhere...
