And just like that, my normally non-soiled jeans were not. Yes, March 2 the traveling metal bonanza Gigantour is hitting Houston's Verizon Wireless Theater, with Megadeth, Motorhead, Lacuna Coil, and Volbeat in tow. Are we excited? A little. Kind of a fan of Motorhead fan and all.
Megadeth last came through Houston in September 2010, with Slayer and Anthrax. Lemmy and company's last Houston date, in September 2009, ended with me having temporary hearing loss. Sweet, sweet deafness. You owe to yourself to at least experience the inability to walk due to sound at least once in your life. You can read more about Rocks Off's unhealthy Lemmy fixation here. The man just turned 66 years old.
This show is on a Friday night, so you have all weekend to recuperate. Pre-sale starts next week, and all the information can be had right here.
