I'd like to see Newsted, but the rest of this lineup just doesn't do much for me. I might go if the Dallas venue is good (i.e. Not the Palladium Ballroom)

It's usually Nokia Theatre or whatever it is now haha. I won't be going though. Went when In Flames played and it was fun but can't see myself enjoying this one.

Yea, I think it's Verizon theater now. I don't mind that venue too much, but I can't really stand the Palladium. There's never anywhere to park and I just don't really like the layout of the Palladium, but I thought the last couple of Gigantours were at Palladium, idk...

I don't think I'd enjoy this lineup too much either, but I was a huge Metallica fan growing up (still kind of am) and I'd like to see Newsted, but maybe he'll tour on his own after this.

Sidenote: Are you going to the Black Hippy show at Nokia/Verizon?

I just realized this is consisting of 4 side projects and 2 bands with a revolving door of members.

Me too. I got a pit ticket. I couldn't get anyone to go with me since the tickets were like $80, but I think it'll still be fun and worth it. Get in touch with me closer to the show and we can meet up for a drink/smoke or something.

That's exactly what I did haha, I usually get 2 tickets for each show I go to but this time it was so pricey I had to settle with 1 pit. I definitely will man!

What's wrong with the Palladium? I'm betting it will be at Gexa anyway.

I don't know... It's just that every time I go to the Palladium it seems like it's packed to the brims and it's virtually impossible to work my way to the front... and unless you are in the front, it's hard to see... plus the acoustics aren't that great.

I mean, it's not the worst venue, but I prefer House of Blues or the Granada
