Gigantour Australia Tour 2007

gigantour.jpg

Today the dates have been announced for the Australia tour of Gigantour, the brainchild of Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, which will kick off in Perth on Nov 10th with Megadeth, Static X, Lacuna Coil and Devildriver as the touring crew for the show. Does anyone else feel bad for the Australians for having such a shitty line-up grace their country? I mean it sucks already that this country, despite being its own damn continent, can’ t get decent tours there, has to receive this year’s Gigantour with the likes of Lacuna Coil and Static X. I honestly have no problem with Lacuna Coil as artists, as they have the capacity to make some beautiful music, however, they suck at metal festivals. This band sticks out like a sore thumb and are often boring to watch with their constant attempts at odd headbanging/body gyrating.

Do I even have to mention Static X? They were a second rate nu-metal band even when the genre was popular, and now all of a sudden they are on a legit metal tour? This is almost as bad as Papa Roach trying to look hardcore with their new outfits, hair-do’s, and logo. I won’t consider myself elitist, but surely Mustaine and his troupe of organizers could have picked some better bands than these two? I have to agree with the choice of Devildriver as they are quickly becoming the new darlings of heavy metal, and will inevitably get a proper reception in the Outback (not to mention they slay live). I hope that the North American tour will supply better choices.

Here is the entire list of dates:

November
10 – Perth – Metro City
12 – Adelaide – Thebarton Theatre
13 – Melbourne – Festival Hall
15 – Sydney – Luna Park Big Top
18 – Brisbane – Riverstage
