Testament got the crowed worked up. Megadeth put the crowd in a frenzy. Slayer brought the roof down on the crowd, blew it up and blew them all away in a maddening mosh pit frenzy of insane proportions. The pits were awesome, aside from the fact that when they got wet, it was like moshing on an ice skating rink. The crowd picked up on this rather fast and were quick to pull people up when they fell. Over all this mad the pits hard to deal with and not near as fun.
To the owners and proprietors of the Magnus Arena. Get new floor pads to protect the wood floor. The ones you have are a SAFETY hazard!!
