Megadeth: Maximun Rock. Sports Palace, Mexico City, Mexico.15.07.00
I don’t know how or why Megadeth toured with Motely crue, this show is famous for the incident between Nikki Sixx from Motely crue and the audience, he had a fight with members of the audience, and stop playing, but first let’s talk about the show, Holy Wars… Is almost incomplete and lasts just some seconds, Trust has like 20 seconds lost of pure silence and Peace sells … is wrong edited in 2 parts, about recording a little bit floating sound, inside a cooper dome called Sports palace it’s difficult to tape, so sounds with some echo and far, they played 2 new songs by then, Kill the king and Return to hangar, now returning to the aggression that happened over this show, there are 2 versions, Dave’s version and real version, for Dave’s Version we have this part of an interview done on 2001 by The Rack:
The Rack: So how did the Maximum Rock Tour with Motley Crue go for you guys?
DM: That was really weird for us... something really weird happened down in Mexico on the Maximum Rock Tour. We're playing and the fanaticos are going crazy and there's this guy in the front row and he's lifting up his shirt and it says Megadeth and he's flipping me off and he's yelling between songs and he's going psycho. I said, "Chico, tranquilo." Which meant, "Hey buddy, just cool out a little bit we'll get to it." Evidently, we left and Motley hit the stage. And they were chanting Megadeth and that one guy is taunting Nikki so Nikki jumped off the stage and hit the kid in the head with his bass. Vince jumped in after him. And these two guys are trying to beat up this kid. The guy was tiny, too. I remember exactly who he was. They said, "This is our last song," and left the stage. The fans started burning cushions and heaving them at the stage and chanting our name for like five minutes. The Crue said it was about 15, but when you're on the team that's sorta been heralded as the good guys, everything gets a little bit more exaggerated. It was about five minutes. Then they came out and sang going home or coming home or on my way or whatever that song is.
OK since I was there at 10 meters from the action, I have a pretty good idea of what happened, Over Megadeth’s set there is a part of the audience asking for Motley Crue, like 80 fans being honest, so when Motley Crue played, several of us asked for Megadeth’s return, like 40, yes even when Megadeth is huge here in Mexico, Motley is bigger, we weren’t so we weren’t as much but we were very noisy, so Motley Crue’s members went angry then Nikki who is an asshole decided to spit every 30 seconds over the fans in front of the stage, also drinking water or beer and spiting them too, until a fan get enough shit from him and spited back and then was when Nikki jumped to fight the fan, trying to hit him with his bass, but then other fan jumped and pulled the bass and therefore Nikki to the audience and the fight started, Vince went to help him and Mick continued playing until he noted the situation, security rescued the asshole, but they refused to continue, after almost 20 minutes they returned to play Home Sweet home one more song and finish the show with several songs not played on the set list.
