    Hmmm...this should be pretty f'ing cool....esp if you score the throwback,
    10 buck, tickets!! haha

    from Blabbermouth:

    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.

    Just bought tickets through the presale. Password was "american" or "carnage" for those interested.

    Section 104, Row E - I think that's about 5 rows off of the floor. I wanted nothing to do with the floor section for this show. :D

    The Ticketbastard fees are just incredible. Hey Rycher, those passwords didn't work for me. What the hell?!

    I prefer going to the box office, but the UIC Pavillion has extremely limited hours: Thursdays and Fridays 9AM-4PM. Maybe they'll be open the Friday after turkey day, hmm.

    Wonder why it's at UIC to begin with. I'd prefer Allstate Arena to be honest. Oh well.

    I'm tempted to get floor tix...dare me! :devil:

    All that crap aside, damn what a friggin' tour! :headbang:

    Not sure how I'd look in green, ha! I should be OK. I've dealt with a Slayer pit before. :heh:
