Megadeth, Motorhead & the rest of Gigantour hit the Theatre at Madison Square Garden (pics/vid/setlists)

Motorhead
Megadeth

Megadeth‘s Gigantour set played like most of their festival appearances of the past year- a greatest hits of their career with a few surprises peppered in. As longtime fans of Megadeth, their catalog of songs are all extremely solid live. But while the band never disappoints, we feel fortunate that Megadeth still exists at all considering all that Mustaine and the boys have been through physically and emotionally over the past decade. At around nine thirty the stage went dark and Shawn Drover’s unmistakable drum beats crashed for the opener “Trust,” from the ‘Cryptic Writings’ album. “Trust,” albeit not as hard as the rest of their catalog is a perfect opener…

At one point Mustaine had Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia come out on stage to sing, “À Tout le Monde (Set Me Free)” with him. It was a fantastic duet of a classic, and the first time I’ve ever seen Mustaine sing with a female. Besides being one of the best shredders in the business, this dude can harmonize with the best of them. Along with these rare on stage moments, fans got the red meat they wanted with staples such as, “Hanger 18″, “Wake Up Dead,” and “Symphony of Destruction,” all of which were played to perfection. -[Local Bozo]

Gigantour, which continues at Glens Falls Civic Center tomorrow night (2/1), rolled into NYC on Saturday (1/28) at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden with apperances from Megadeth, the legendary Motorhead, Lacuna Coil and Volbeat. Pictures/setlists from that show (sans shots of Lacuna Coil, though there are some of Cristina on stage with Dave) are in this post. More of them with some videos, the setlists and all dates, below….
