  1. Mr. Bungle Reunion

    Yeah, super excited to see Scott a part of this too since I'm a massive Anthrax fan. Him and Dave both seem really honored to be a part of this.
  2. Mr. Bungle Reunion

    The extraordinarily weird Mike Patton-led band Mr. Bungle are back! They just announced their first shows in nearly 20 years, and they’ll be performing their chaotic, hardcore-tinged 1986 demo The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny at these shows, which will mark the first time these songs have been played live in over 30 years. Original members Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance are all on board for the shows, and their lineup will very impressively be rounded out by Anthrax’s Scott Ian and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo (who also plays with Patton in Dead Cross and played with Patton and Dunn in Fantomas), both of whose classic bands were clear influences on Mr. Bungle in the thrashy Easter Bunny era, as Mike, Trevor, and Trey acknowledged while discussing these upcoming shows. See quotes from them — as well as Scott Ian and Dave Lombardo — below. The shows happen in February 2020 at LA’s Fonda Theatre on 2/7, San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre on 2/8, and NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on 2/10. They say these are the only three cities they’re playing, and support bands TBA. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/16) at 10 AM local time with an artist presale starting Thursday (8/15) at 10 AM local. Presale password = SHADE. Here are the quotes on these shows from all five members of the band: “Ever since Trevor hatched The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny v.2 idea a few years back, Patton, Lombardo, he and I had each been incubating some idea of that egg. Lombardo called me one day and asked me to make some guitar demos so he could learn the songs. He had this generous idea to surprise the other guys with being totally ready to go with the tunes. It just so happened that I was in Eureka at the time. So, I found myself re-visiting all of those riffs in the same goddamned town and in the same goddamned house where I recorded all the original guitars on that demo 33 years earlier. There was something about actually physically working out the mania of those riffs again at DAVE LOMBARDO’S request, in that environment — it just split my head open. It wasn’t long before the train of destiny had picked up too much speed for any of us to jump off.” – Trey Spruance “When we recorded that demo, we were 16 and 17 years old and we were absolutely serious about the music. At the time, we were living the deluge of ’80s metal and absorbing every riff and every drum fill from every known band from Denmark to San Francisco. The recording and playing were amateurish (save for Trey’s video-game-solos) but the schooled composition and spirit were solid. I always felt like this music held its own and deserved to be presented in a clearer and more defined package even if it meant being 33 years later.” – Trevor Dunn “I remember writing riffs for this cassette in my parent’s garage, with no heat, so I recorded in a sleeping bag for analog warmth, playing a one-stringed acoustic guitar that was piped into a ghetto blaster. Thank god I had Trevor and Trey to help decipher my rotten riffs into something intelligible!” – Mike Patton “When Mike hit me up about this my brain thought he was asking me if I wanted to come to a show, him knowing I am a HUGE Bungle fan. When I realized he actually meant for me to play guitar with them it broke my brain, I was a giggly drooling mess. Somehow I pecked out Y E S on my keyboard and holy crap I’m playing in Mr. Bungle. Seriously, it’s an honor and a privilege to get to play with my favorite ‘Mr.’ band of all time.” – Scott Ian “I don’t know what was in the water in Eureka California, but it certainly wasn’t clean. This is going to be a ridiculously, insane band to play with and I am honored to have been asked to join the wrath.” – Dave Lombardo The idea that Dunn, Patton and Spruance will be joined by their early musical heroes is not lost on the musicians: “They are a significant percentage of ‘The Big Four’, all of which had a major impact on us. Aside from their obvious skills and –for crying out loud, INVENTION of this genre– there’s nothing like being in a band with those whom which you have rapport. If we are going back to the source with this stuff we might as well go ALL THE WAY back.” – Trevor Dunn “To have Scott and Dave with us on this suicide mission is more than an honor. THEY are a big part of the reason we wrote this stuff in the first place, and to realize it 30+ years later with these maestros is an absolute miracle… we can finally play this teenage nonsense correctly! A total catharsis for us. “ – Mike Patton “At our very first show, at the Bayside Grange Hall, Nov. 30, 1985, we played Slayer’s ‘Chemical Warfare’ and a S.O.D. cover. I mean, are you kidding?? We WORSHIPPED those guys! And now they’re gonna PLAY in our band?” – Trey Spruance February 6 - Fonda Theatre, Los Angeles, CA February 7 - Fond Theatre, Los Angeles, CA February 8 - The Warfield, San Francisco, CA February 10 - Brooklyn Steel, Brooklyn, NY February 11 - Brooklyn Steel, Brooklyn, NY February 13 - The Warfield, San Francisco, CA I managed to get one ticket to night 2 in NY, but I also need to find a ticket for my girlfriend. To StubHub it is I guess
  3. Which shows? I did Chicago 1 and Foxborough and thought both were fantastic. Really enjoyed last year in London but I thought both shows this year were better.
  4. Cool, I’ll have to check it out.
  5. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2019

    Because they like playing amphitheaters also? That indoor show in Dallas in 2017 was the first indoor show in Dallas in some time, maybe they just didn’t like the venue. I know it was a shitshow organization-wise, so that could have something to do with it too.
  6. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2019

    Went to the Bristow gig with @Black Sabbath tonight!
  7. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast World Tour 2018-2019

    2019 tour kicked off in Florida last night. Good gig, but evident it was their first show back. Same setlist as last year, with only the smallest production changes.
  8. Not really, no. But I’m not surprised they’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of Highway To Hell. It really laid the groundwork for them to break through the way they did, even if it wasn’t fully realized until after Back In Black came out. It gets overshadowed by BIB, but Highway was a huge album for them still.
  9. It was on the left if you're standing at the tunnel. I didn't really care for him, but I'm also not a huge Oasis fan for that matter.
  10. Last year the only gig I saw was night 1 at London Stadium and I thought they were fucking incredible. I'll admit there was probably a good bit of bias there for me; it was my first time seeing them in their hometown, West Ham is my team so seeing a gig there was really special, and it was a great setlist by current standards. I think the performances this year so far are as good as last year, though London is still my favorite Stones gig. Chicago was a very special one with it being Mick's comeback gig - everyone was really firing on all cylinders, I think it's the most fun I've ever seen them having. I love that they're back to performing as a full band on the B-stage, and I love that it's acoustic - makes for a very intimate moment even in a massive stadium. Like I said last night was a bit more laid back, but a good bit of that stemmed from the setlist. And even so, a laid back gig isn't a bad thing, it just had a different feel. I've seen them 11 times; Hershey 2005, Brooklyn 2012, Toronto 2013 (Night 1), Rome 2014, Columbus 2015, Indianapolis 2015, Detroit 2015, Buffalo 2015, London 2018 (Night 1), Chicago 2019 (Night 1), and Boston 2019. Hershey and Brooklyn were probably the weakest shows I've seen from them, every show since has been far better than either of those. Columbus was the only show where I've found the setlist to really be lacking.
  11. Good show in Foxborough last night, if not a bit more laid back than Chicago. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, but Chicago was both a more energetic performance and setlist. Had seats that should’ve been marked obstructed and weren’t, so got upgraded to $400 seats - that was nice. Play With Fire was great acoustic, and I’m glad She’s So Cold won the song vote.
  12. Same here - I was supposed to do Philly, Boston, DC, and one of the NJ gigs, but almost everything fell during the Maiden your after the new dates got announced. Just did Chicago 1 and doing Boston now.
  13. Which gigs are you doing? Yeah, night 2 was a good setlist. A bit jealous I didn’t see that one (Especially over Monkey Man), but the rotating songs on night 1 were great also. Sad Sad Sad was really a highlight as Steel Wheels is one of my favorite Stones albums, and surprisingly I had never seen Dead Flowers before.
  14. Chicago 2 setlist: 1. Jumpin’ Jack Flash 2. It’s Only Rock N Roll 3. Tumbling Dice 4. Bitch 5. Ride Em On Down 6. Monkey Man (Song vote) 7. You Can’t Always Get What You Want 8. Play With Fire (B-stage) 9. Sweet Virginia (B-stage) 10. Sympathy For The Devil 11. Honky Tonk Women 12. Slipping Away 13. Before They Make Me Run 14. Miss You 15. Paint It Black 16. Midnight Rambler 17. Start Me Up 18. Brown Sugar - - - 19. Gimme Shelter 20. Satisfaction
  15. AXL/DC Bootlegs

    Links can't be posted on the forums anymore, but a lot of this stuff is pretty readily available elsewhere. From the US leg, the best recordings out there IMO are Buffalo (Which was also Axl's strongest voice with AC/DC if you ask me), and Philadelphia (Which was also the only time they played Problem Child).
