    CONCERT REVIEW: HOUSE OF BLUES, MYRTLE BEACH, SC

    Darren Pope for Examiner.com has posted the following concert review: "The thrash metal icons are currently touring in support of the 20th Anniversary rerelease of what many consider to Megadeth's definitive album, "Countdown To Extinction". On Saturday, the band brought the tour to the Myrtle Beach House of Blues, and it was phenomenal. ...If you didn't make it to this show, you missed one of the best metal shows you could ever hope to see. The sound, the visuals, and the overall production were as close to flawless as you could get. To see a band of Megadeth’s magnitude at such an intimate venue was really something special."

    CHRIS BRODERICK TALKS TECHNIQUE WITH GUITAR WORLD

    Andy Aledort of GuitarWorld.com conducted an interview with Chris Broderick. "My musical tastes don’t belong to any particular genre," says Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick. "The only requirement is that the musicians are proficient and the music meets the intent of the composer." ...Broderick has a deep respect for both music and musical performance and has pushed himself relentlessly in the pursuit of technical proficiency and musical freedom. No less an authority than Dave Mustaine calls Broderick “the greatest guitar player Megadeth has ever had.” Read the interview at GuitarWorld.com.

    CONCERT REVIEW: LC PAVILION, COLUMBUS, OH

    Chad Hobbs for Examiner.com has posted the following concert review: "Metal-heads united in Columbus last night for the celebration of 20 years since the release of Megadeth’s smash album "Countdown To Extinction". An album, whose message and views on world events are far too similar to world events in the present tense. The reason these songs are still relevant is because the message within them is still relevant." Read the review at Examiner.com.

    *Note: Dave Mustaine agreed with Chad Hobbs' assessment of the review in "The Columbus Dispatch", calling it a substandard newspaper.
