I am sooooooooooo there

SLAYER. MEGADETH. Two names synonymous with fierce, crunching power. Two bands whose histories are inevitably intertwined in defining the thrash/metal genre. Individually, their respective prowess and accomplishments are impressive; but together, they're brutal and unstoppable. MEGADETH and SLAYER will join forces to co-headline "American Carnage", the most blistering, the most explosive, and the most eagerly anticipated mega-tour of the winter — and you do not want to miss it.

"American Carnage" will kick off on January 18 in Seattle, Washington for a 26-date trek across North America that will include the six Canadian dates postponed earlier this month. Tickets for most shows go on sale this Friday, November 20. Ticketmaster is offering a special presale for most shows from Wednesday, November 18 at 10am until Thursday, November 19 at 10pm.

"American Carnage" is the first time that SLAYER and MEGADETH will have toured the U.S. together since 1991's epic "Clash of the Titans" tour. To celebrate that and in recognition of the tough economic times that many of their fans are having, MEGADETH and SLAYER have decided to roll back the price of a chunk of tickets at every U.S. show to the "1991 price" of $10.00. These specially-priced tickets will be limited and when they're gone, they're gone. MEGADETH has also teamed with iloveallaccess.com to provide an Ultimate Fan Package including premium seats, meet and greets, pre-show parties and more.

In addition, TESTAMENT — who was also on the "Clash of the Titans" bill — will be special guests on the entire tour, marking the first time that all three bands have shared a stage together in more than 18 years, and making this a "must see" metal event.

SLAYER and MEGADETH have already massacred territories together outside of the U.S. — first with four explosive dates in June, 2009 across Western Canada - "Canadian Carnage" — marking the first time the bands had shared a stage anywhere in 18 years; and then six co-headlining "Carnage" dates in Australia followed in October.

I caught one of the first "Clashes", Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Alice in Chains. Yup, AIC. I think it was '89.
I caught that show in 90 in San Diego.

oh wait a minute, they're coming to Houston! YES!

I haven't seen Slayer in a WHILE. First time I saw them was opening for WASP. Reign In Blood tour. Corpus.

One of the craziest shows I've ever seen. People were sneaking into the venue through the ductwork. When WASP came out, they were booed offstage, and people ripped up seating and threw it at the stage. Minor riot ensued.

Dude I can't wait. Three of my favorite four thrash bands in one show. I wasn't alive for Clash of the Titans. I rushed and bought the presale tickets for the floor. It's gonna be SICK. I wish the RIP Megadeth line up was still around though. :(

WHA?!?!?

WASP is amazing!!! I really wish that Slayer fans weren't so damn close-minded sometimes. They probably didn't know any of WASP's material and didn't give them a chance. Despite somewhat resembling a Hair Metal band (which is still somewhat debatable, it would be difficult to confuse Blackie with a Hair Metal singer), WASP made some amazing Metal, I don't think they've ever made a bad record.

It would've been funny if Slayer fans did that for Manson at Mayhem. I'm not a close-minded Slayer fan. I just don't care for Manson. I'm assuming a lot of people didn't since more than 1/3 of the crowd left once he got on.

I saw WASP on another occasion. It wasn't a very good show. Plus, Corpus has a TON of die-hard Slayer fans. Even did at that early point in their career.

It was one of the most chaotic experiences I've ever had. I was sure I was going to get nailed over the head with a chair.
