Testament @ Starland Ballroom - April 5, 2008 (K.Knipp)
Testament

"We'll be on first, and we're only gonna have 30 minutes, so we won't be doing any talking.....We're just gonna hit you hard -- bam, bam, bam, bam -- with everything we've got."

Thats Chuck Billy from Sunday night's show at B.B.Kings, in response to whether or not his band Testament were going to open on the previously mentioned mega terrific super ridiculous tour with Motorhead, Heaven & Hell (Black Sabbath with Dio), & Judas Priest. Between Chuck Billy and Rob Halford, it sounds like all but a confirmation.....

Whats more, Blabbermouth.net are reporting that Testament had a few arena dates that were announced and then removed.... Ones that are MUCH bigger than the clubs that Testament played Sunday night and the night before (Starland Ballroom). The mystery tour dates and actual tour dates below...

So very excited until I saw the venue list. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Very disappointed. But I guess we now have something to do while Jack Johnson is playing APW.

So, seeing as Chuck Billy, Vinny Appice, AND Rob Halford have confirmed this going to happen...shouldn't we get something official already??
