What an awesome experience to shoot photos of legendary metal band Megadeth, who took the stage at WaMu Theater Sept. 27 wtih tremendous energy and proceeded to tear through a great mix of old and new songs.
The sound at the WaMu theater was amazing – perfect for a metal show – and the group’s high-production lighting and stage presentation made the whole thing feel even more epic. I was at home among a crowd of current and former metalheads, which included classic long-hairs, sleeveless shirts, and leather jackets, as well as some teens…. Teens who assuredly have very cool parents.
Opener Amon Aarth but on a great show as well, performing in front of what looked like a Viking ship. Here are my favorite shots from the night.
