MegaDisappointment

Again, Dave Mustaine is having trouble with Gigantour, which last summer played to half-empty venues and was booked at locales unable to accommodate both stages. The September 7 tour opener at Cox Arena has been rescheduled, and the first show will instead be September 6 in Boise, Idaho. The San Diego date has been shifted to September 9 (when Gigantour was supposed to hit San Luis Obispo). Also, not all advertised bands will be appearing at all tour stops. No explanations have been offered for the date and lineup alterations.

Some fans have expressed dismay over Gigantour's "platinum ticket package," which runs $250 for a single ticket in the first four rows, a "platinum member T-shirt," a set of "official Megadeth guitar pics [sic] and drumsticks," and an "authentic VIP laminate" allowing them into a backstage meet-and-greet with Megadeth.

"We can't even bring our own cameras," complains jesscat at blabbermouth.net. "They have someone taking the [photos] and you only get one! Plus, you don't get your tix until the night of the show [at the will-call window] and yet they want my fuckin deniro [sic] right now! How do we even know Dave's gonna be there? It could just be whoever he's hired to be in Megadeth this month!"
