Testament To Play Full Album on Slayer/Megadeth Tour
Testament revealed to fans that they will have a special treat for them on the upcoming American Carnage tour with Slayer and Megadeth. In a new interview frontman Chuck Billy told KNAC.com:
Last night we just made a crucial decision, so you’re going to be the first exclusive to hear. We decide last night that instead of putting – because we only have a 40-minute set to pick – instead of playing a medley of songs, we decided we’re going to do the entire The Legacy record, start to finish, in its entirety for the show.
We did it last year, over in Holland, and then we did a show in London. And that show we did The Legacy and The New Order back to back, just like on the records, song after song. It was awesome. It was such an awesome deal. It turned out way better than we thought. It was killer. So, we were rehearsing for this tour, and at one point we were like, ‘Man, we’re not playing this and we’re not playing that. Ah, shit. We only got 40 minutes; you can only play eight songs, so it’s tough to pick eight songs. We’re leaving so many good ones out.’ And we were like, ‘You know what? Since we’ve already toured a year and a half with PRIEST, we did our own headline, we did so much stuff out there, why don’t we go out there and do something different? We’ll give ’em a whole different stage look…let’s give ’em The Legacy album, start to finish.’ It’s a nostalgic kind of tour, so why not?
