Heaven and Hell, Megadeth, Machinehead 05-18-2007

Merriweather Post Pavillion
Columbia, Maryland
Heaven and Hell Tour

Ronnie James Dio with Black Sabbath!!  When was the last time they all played together???  They played briefly in ’92.   Although its been some time, Dio sounded just as good as he ever has!  You could tell he was ecstatic to be playing up there with his old band mates from Sabbath!  He was thanked the crowd several times.  Iommi was amazing to listen to, blistering through “Lady Evil,” “Sign of the Southern Cross,” a very precise  “Die Young,” and a poignant “Falling Off the Edge of the World.” He let his guitar (and Dio) do the talking, leaving his silent, dark presence on stage speak for itself. Butler’s bass playing was excellent. Did I mention Vinny Aspice was killing it on his drum solo!

 Dave Mustaine brought forth Megadeth with band members Glen Drover (Lead Guitar), JamesLomenzo (Bass Guitar) and Shawn Drover (Percussion) touring in support of the band’scurrent release, United Abominations

If there was any doubt to weather Mustaine had fully recovered from his arm injury back in 2002, all you had to do was see how the crowd was lovin every minute of it!
Machinehead

setlist
Imperium
Now I Lay Thee Down
Aesthetics Of Hate

Davidian

Machinehead is Rob Flynn (guitars/vocals), Phil Dremmel (lead guitar), Adam Duce (bass guitar), and Dave McClain (drums)!

Machinehead led by Rob Flynn was in your face energy from start to finish!  Right before Aesthetics of Hate, Rob dedicated the song to Dimebag Darrell.  Phil had some amazing guitar solos throughout their set!  The highlight for me was when in the middle of Aesthics Rob and Phil were jamming together just playing off each others leads.
