    The six and a half hour road trip is going to cost you a heck of a lot more than ticketbastard fees. Besides how many times has DT actually played in El Paso? Probably not a whole lot I would venture to say.

    just saw IE last month in Worcester; I'll opt out of Boston show, especially with the Red Sox home that night which means the Lansdowne St area will be a mess.

    Dude, are you going to Arizona??? As a Norwegian, I have to say: Beware of the one way streets!!!
    Or wasn't the case where a Norwegian got 7,5 years in jail for accidentally (I assume) going against traffic (although no cars) with a weapon (defined by the judge as his car, so we all carry a weapon every day) in AZ covered much in US press???

    Has Volbeat ever played a DC date? It seems they always go to Baltimore.

    I liked the first song I heard on their album.. had some promise.. the rest were let downs for me. I'm sure they're someone's bag, just not mine.

    Last time they came through they had Cold and some band from Texas that had a good video for one song but both bands were a snoozefest.

    \/olbeat appeals to young fans as well. There was quite a mix the last time I saw them.

    The incident took place in Winslow, AZ which is a Podunk town. The Volbeat show is in the greater Phoenix area not even close to where the incident took place. You can make your own determination as to the driver who is getting jail time.

    Yeppers I will go to Arizona for the Volbeat Show, as well as Nightwish, you think it's bad with one-way streets in Arizona you ought to come here to El Paso. And no it wasn't even covered in the US press at all, this is the first I have heard of it. Coming from El Paso i will stay on I-10 from ElP to just outside Chandler Az then take the 202 for about 3 miles hit the 101 north then back on the 202 for less than a mile to the hotel(Best Western). The Marquee theater is about a mile from the hotel, North Scottsdale road left on E. Curry to the corner of E. Curry and N. Mills rd(730 nothe mills). No one way streets involved, thank God.

    The thing is I like Volbeat a lot better than DT. Plus it is time for my wife and I to take a road trip, to get away from El Paso.

    All I can say is, VOLBEAT THOROUGHLY KICKED MAJOR ASS LIVE
    this past sunday @ Project 96.1's "Cinco De Mayo" show @ Verizon
    Wireless Ampitheatre!!!

    Although, I really would've really preferred to hear "Soulsweeper" or "Wild Rover Of Hell", "Maybelenne I Hofteholder", or even their badass Misfits cover
    of "Angelfuck",
    way more than the Dusty Springfield (& covered by the Bay City Rollers!)
    song, "I Only Wanna Be With You",
    I was STILL totally blown the fuck away live!!!

    VOLBEAT RULES!!! :headbang:

    Go see them immediately, They are fuckin' Incredible & Amazing!!!!
    Absolutely one of my favorite bands & live performances
    of this whole year!!! :kickass:

    Yep I'd love that Wild Rover Of Hell and Soulsweeper could be in the setlist...

    How long did they play? Last year in Montreal, it was around 75 minutes including the encores. I'm gonna do the 6-hour drive to see them with my wife in Clifton Park, NY. Will be my third time seeing them, but the 1st time for my wife, who also loves the band.

    Also, how long does Iced Earth play? Probably 30 minutes or so...

    I only saw the MISFITS do this sone ONE time!
    Pretty cool they covered a more obscure tune.

    Still shocked as hell that hard rock and metal crowds have taken to these guys. If this were 10 years ago they would be regular tour mates with Social Distortion, Flogging Molly, or Dropkick Murphys.
