Adelaide Dissapointment

Gday all,
Im a big time slayer fan and was hugely dissapointed that the boys didnt end up coming to Theby to play like scheduled. We were all lined up ready to go in when an official walked passed letting everyone know that Tom had laryngitis so they have continued onto perth and our gig has been canceled.
The pissy part about the story is they are flying over the top of us to go and play an extra gig in sydney after playing in perth then heading off out of Australia... i guess they dont like us in Adelaide...

Sydney gig 8th October 2009

I wanted to voice my absolute disappointment in the Slayer/Megadeth Sydney gig on October 8th 2009. I am a huge Slayer fan, and was greatly looking forward to this gig, but found the sound quality so poor I left before the band had finished in disgust. I know this is not a reflection on the band, as they were obviously giving it their all, but who ever was behind the desk mixing the show was an absolute ammeter. I've never walked out on a gig before, but my disgust at the overall sound was too great and I hated watching such a great band sound so bad.
And I'm not the only one, as anyone I talked to after the gig was also disappointed with the sound. I heard comments like "The band was great but the sound sucked!" and "The sound for Megadeth was just as bad!"
I know the troubles Slayer have since had with Tom Araya's voice giving out, and I hope it had nothing to do with such a crap mix at the Sydney gig and Tom having to strain to be heard.
