Past, present & future - 2006-01-27 00:00

2006-01-27 00:00 - ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has issued the following update regarding the band's recently completed U.S. tour and upcoming European trek:<br><br>&quot;Wow. These were the best gigs we've played in the states in a long time. We had only played a handful of shows in the U.S. with the reunion 8-9 months ago. It hadn't really sunk in yet I think and even though those shows were good, they were nowhere near as great as many of the shows in Australia or Europe over the summer. People were really excited and had been waiting months to see us and were finally getting the chance. Almost all the shows were sold out and the crowds were insane. Best NY show in forever. Somehow Chicago was even better, Minneapolis was ridiculous, and Los Angeles of all places topped them all! The L.A. show was crazy. I haven't seen a mosh-pit like that since L.A. 1987. Unbelievable. The crowds were a great mix of new and old fans. There were so many kids at the shows and they are dressing like I did in 1986 with tight jeans and big hi-top sneakers. Is that fashion coming back? I hope so!!!!<br><br>&quot;This reunion has become bigger than the five of us. The band is tighter than ever and we are so strong musically as well as personally that nothing could stop us. It really feels like we are riding on a wave. I can feel the excitement all around us and the support growing every show. I know that people were skeptical of this reunion and some still are. I challenge you to come see us and then see what you think. People shouldn&#8217;t judge or speculate about something they have not had any experience with. And as far as the future goes, we will be able to tell you all about that very soon. . . I can only imagine how great [the upcoming European tour] will be. The gauntlet has been thrown Europe. You better represent!!!!&quot;<br><br>Regarding the fact that the band's upcoming European tour is limited to only 19 dates, Scott said, &quot;We only have three weeks to play shows there in April because of our schedule. If we had more time, there would be more dates. I am bummed we are not coming to Ireland. The shows have been great and I wanted to see the Phil Lynott statue outside the Bruxelles and have a pint. We asked about a show there but it comes down to the promoters, hall availabilities, and the routing. Three weeks doesn't give us any room to breathe. That's why we can't make Poland. Next time on a full tour for sure.&quot;<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=464"><u>ANTHRAX</u></a>&quot;
