5 Aug, 2012 at the ATT Show Box, Taipei

I'm super psyched about this since I've never seen them. i can't believe I've seen Metallica three times but never Megadeth when they're my favorite band.

I wish I could, but I'll be out of the country then :(

The local support band, Masquerader, are a really great thrash metal band too.

I saw Deathcab for Cutie there a few months ago. Great venue: It was easily the best sound at a concert that I have ever experienced and I have been to many. One thing that puzzles me: The place only holds a couple thousand at the most. It seems they have many different levels of ticket prices for the Megadeth show and I don't really understand how they can justify or pull that off at such a small venue...

buy the cheapest ticket, drink lots of beer up the back, and then stomp over everyone else to get to the front when the interesting stuff starts.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Thanks citizen K, I was wondering about the capacity too after seeing some photos of their interior online.

Urodacus, that's exactly what came to mind. :lol:

Seen them twice, they are totally worth it! They always had a great sound and of course the band is tight as hell.

Where is this ATT place? Is it near that ATT dept store?
