Megadeth in Bangalore

This is a preview to the Megadeth Concert as part of Rock in India Festival that took place on March 14th 2008 at Palace Grounds in Bangalore. If you are looking for a review on the concert, click here

Ok. Everybody who was anybody and who listened to some kinda music were there to see Iron Maiden at Bangalore last year. Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t make it there (and yes I still call myself a rock fan). Now before you make up your mind to bash me up for good, please listen to the lame excuses that I have to offer. Please listen to what I have to say.


Ok it actually makes sense for you to bash me up. Go ahead. But just make sure that I am in a state to attend the Megadeth concert in Bangalore on 14th March! Goddamnit! Finally I will be able to see them in front of me. All these years I have been living without even the smallest hope that I will someday see them live. But here I am. Just a little over a month to go and I will be headbanging till my neck breaks.

I am going to make amends for missing out on the Maiden concert by doing whatever it takes to get the front row. Even if that means standing in the queue from 11 in the morning for the Megadeth show that starts at 8 in the night!

And about the event, there is another big name band coming. The whole event is actually a Rock Festival. The first of its kind in India. So with Megadeth headlining the show, we have Machinehead supporting them! And apart from all these, we have our own local Professional Rock bands performing before them. The list goes like this:


2)Thermal and a Quarter

3) Mother Jane

4) Prestorika

5)Junkyard Groove

6) Casino Blues

7) Millenium

So thats the complete list of the bands that will be performing at Rock in India Festival on March 14th 2008. The show as such will begin at 2PM. So I presume the local bands will be playing in the daytime and Machinehead and Megadeth will perform in the night. Tickets are priced at 1000 Rs.

I have been reading a lot about Dream Theater also coming down for the Festival. Obviously it is a dream come true for any metalhead. But of what I have been able to gather info, they are scheduled to perform in Venezuela on the same day. So I guess that sort of ruled them out…But then I was later to learn from a variety of sources about the rumour of DT having cancelled the entire South America Show. Being highly unlikely, I checked out their official website and it said no such thing. So officially atleast DT is not coming to Bangalore. Will update if anything comes up…

UPDATE: I bought my passes for the concert online. The ticket cost is 1000 bucks but you will be charged another 100 bucks for the courier fee. So I suggest you buy in numbers more than 1 to save money. The tickets are due to come by March 4th or 5th.

Man, I can’t wait to make amends…..

You coming?
