I have seen Megadeth 3 times on headlining tours, but none as big as this tour. Unfortunately, they did not come around my neck of the woods when this tour thundered across the USA. However, with this DVD, you can experience at least a small flavor of what all most of the bands had to offer. Spearheaded by Megadeth, and the brainchild of Dave Mustaine, this concert grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go until it's over. Other highlights are Dream Theater, Fear Factory, Life of Agony, Nevermore, Symphony X, Dry Kill Logic, and Bobaflex. The glaring omission on the live DVD is Anthrax, but that does not deminish from the power of this tour, and the excellence of this DVD. The CD and the DVD are all currently very reasonably priced, and should be added to the collections of all fans of Metal and Musicianship. Plus, the bonus dvd with backstage and behind the scenes muckary is nice to see that the bands were having fun, as should you watching the show. Highly recommended.
P.S. During a show on August 2, 2005 in Dallas, Dream Theater paid tribute to Pantera's late guitarist Dimebag Darrell by performing the song "Cemetery Gates" as an encore. In addition was the unexpected appearance of fellow musicians Russell Allen, Burton C. Bell and Dave Mustaine, who joined the band on stage to perform parts of the song.
This performance is included on the bonus disc of the DVD. Amazing performing, MUST WATCH IT!!!!!
