There is a lot to talk about, but nothing more important than this:
This is a night I have been hoping for, for many years now; the night before a “fierce new Megadeth release.”
I want to tell you all how much I love you and how many times I have felt like I was going to explode in anticipation just watching you hear United Abominations for the first time.
It’s no secret how much we care about each other here at Megadeth.com and Myspace/Megadeth and I wish I could be there with you, hanging out, to share the moment and chat with you, and hear your excitement when you are done experiencing U.A. for the first time.
But I have a secret for you… it is going to get better every time you listen to it.
I want you to know we thought of every one of you, each time we sang, and we thought of each one of you, each time we played. We were so excited about you hearing this, because WE like it. And that is a kewl thing.
Your love for Megs has fired me up to make a record that I love, beyond just about anything I have ever done.
I would like to say a li’l prayer that each one of you would know how much I love you and appreciate your support…. even the assholes.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Megadeth’s latest DVD Release That One Night, – Live in Buenos Aires was from a concert filmed live at Obras Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 9, 2005! Megadeth’s lineup at the time were Dave Mustaine on lead guitar and vocals, Glen Drover on Lead Guitar, Shawn Drover on Drums and James MacDonough (from Iced Earth) on bass.
Personally, I thought the track listing was good, but I would have liked a couple more tracks from Countdown to Extinction, but that really isn’t a show stopper.
The crowd energy in this show is amazing to see. I don’t know how many people were in the audience but had to be well in the tens of thousands. The crowd sings along to Dave Mustaine’s guitar parts at times, and it is pretty amazing to behold. I have been to a lot of rock shows, and I have never seen that.
Mustaine’s voice is in perfect form, and the band sounds great. My only gripe is that I kind of got the feeling that the band was somewhat tired during this show. I wasn’t seeing the same kind of energy that I saw when I saw them open for Heaven and Hell recently. Sometimes this is hard to capture on film, but I wouldn’t call this a WOW performance.
Regardless of the band’s energy, the video is crisp and clean, and the sound is damn near studio quality. Personally, I don’t think this is Megadeth’s best performance, but it does whet my appetite to see them live again. I would certainly recommend this DVD to all Megadeth fans out there, but probably isn’t essential for all hard rock fans.
Here is a small taste of what you will see on the DVD That One Night – Live in Buenos Aires:
