Was at Manchester tonight, enjoyed hearing almost all of Burn My Eyes with almost all the original line up.

Did Flynn really think people wouldn't notice if they skipped a track on what was supposed to be a full album set and play a slayer/Metallica medley instead? Knobhead.

They did, they skipped real lies. Went straight from I'm Your God Now to the medley then Block.

Real Lies was the intro tape to the Burn My Eyes set. They have never played it live as such. Didn’t on the original Burn My Eyes tour and didn’t play it when they did Burn My Eyes in full in Manchester back in 2004 either

I was either in the bog or the bar at that point, either way it still feels like a cop out and not what was advertised and I'll also be hearing Robb Flynn screaming for a circle pit in my nightmares for awhile now.

Really? It's basically an interlude, thought it worked well as an intro tape myself.

Did he insist on you grabbing the back of the person next to you's head and making them headbang in Manchester? Given how drunk a lot of people were I think that was just asking for trouble :lol:
