Hopefully there's going to be a last minute ticket drop for Sunday's Hollywood Palladium show like they did when they played The Wiltern before the last tour. I hear they are doing stadiums this tour and playing either Dodger Stadium or The Rose Bowl and I don't want to deal with that.

Why would you bother?

You've seen them in their heyday? No point in seeing them now :noclue:

They still put on a solid show and I think the latest album is pretty decent. And there's no such thing as a bad show at The Hollywood Palladium.

Every time I hear Enter Sandman now, I think of Michael Jackson and get annoyed.

Is Enter Sandman about Michael Jackson?

My understanding is that it's about a nightmare....I read the lyrics were actually scaled back because of how explicit they were.

Both incorrect... it was originally about crib death/SIDS, but management was like, dude... even for a heavy metal song that's fuckin' DARK...

Yeah, but also South Park making him into Peter Pan. Plus the lyrics sound like the singer wants to touch kids. :neutral:

I hope that wasn't MYXYLPLYX's job, lol. I thought Gaga was decent - the production was embarrassing though.

Also they played Metallica's Master Of Puppets when Megadeth's Dave Mustaine went up for his award. I bet that went over well with him.

Now I wish I made more of an effort to catch the Palladium show tonight.

Not a bad set list though.

and they didn’t play nothing else matters, so you wouldn’t have had to sit through that

Nope, I only do local shows, and even then I work more with the band than with the techs.

I DID handle some gear that trucked down for the gig, but mostly rehearsal stuff and definitely no mic's!

The web feed had no audio issues... if anyone wants to hear it.
http://sixxsense.iheart.com/articles/ro ... -15558750/

I could hear my son say "d'OH! :essence: " all the way from across the country during the tv performance.
An audio guy's worst nightmare.

MYXYLPLYX glad it wasn't you.
The link says "a stagehand accidentally unplugged" it.
Do they have a road crew for these types of events? Or do they have to use union stagehands provided by the venue since it was a tv production? My brother traveled everywhere with the bands he has worked for,now retired after 28 years as a personal guitar tech, he even worked tv shows when the bands appeared (ie: David Letterman etc), so I was curious if they took anyone with them since you didn't go.

How old are you MYXYLPLYX ? Wondering now if I or my brother might know you from back in the day?
(Old Waldorf, Keystone Berkeley, The Stone, Ruthie's, Gilman, pre "world fame" gigs; or The Omni for Spastic Children incarnations... if not then we might have mutual old friends?
