Concert Gallery: Megadeth at Mayhem Festival at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA

July 28, 2011 by  
Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

Mayhem Fest stampeded its way into the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA on July 22 for what would prove to be a long sweaty day of metal and mosh pits.  With the weather hitting record temperatures by the time Megadeth hit the stage, their song “Sweating Bullets” seemed fitting!

Headlining the show with Disturbed and hometown boys Godsmack, Megadeth proved to be one of the crowd favorites of the evening.   With Dave Mustaine’s signature red swirling mane,  Dave Ellefson’s devil horns high in the air and Chris Broderick bouncing from one side of the stage to the other , it was as hot on the stage as it was off. 

The only downfall of playing as part of an epic bill like Mayhem Fest is that each band doesn’t get to play as long as the crowd would probably like but it’s a fair trade off for a full day of metal that Mayhem delivers.    Megadeth made the most of their set powering through classics like “Hangar 18”, “Symphony of Destruction” and “Peace Sells”.

TWRY photographer Jamie Ivins was on hand to capture it all, check out his gallery of Megadeth’s set below!  Mayhem Festival continues through mid August.  Check out their website for remaining dates and ticket info!

Concert Gallery: Metallica at “The Big Four” in Indio, CA

April 27, 2011 by  
Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

On April 23, 2011 Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA was transformed into the metal Motherland as “The Big Four” descended upon the desert for their only North America appearance. Living up to their name “The Big Four” of Thrash, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax delivered up legendary performances. Check out our galleries from the show below!

Oh and never fear East Coast, we’re not out of this yet! Metallica’s Lars Ulrich told RollingStone.com that more U.S. “Big Four” dates are possible. “We are looking to book something on the East Coast because of the success of this — it should hopefully come together in a week or two,” Ulrich said. “Maybe we’ll do somewhere in the Midwest and South, too. Still, I don’t think it will turn into a 40-date arena tour; that would make it less special. I like the fact that there’s an element of chaos to the whole thing. It shouldn’t be sterile, streamlined and perfect: it needs an edgy underbelly to remain authentic.”
