The inaugural Megadeth’s MegaCruise set sail from Los Angeles, California to San Diego and Mexico in October 2019. Armored Saint lit up the deck stage, under the stars, as the ship sailed through the Pacific Ocean.
Armored Saint formed in 1982 and is one of the rare bands that still feature all of their original members, with the obvious exception of founding guitarist Dave Prichard, who passed in 1990, and was replaced by Jeff Duncan.
Vocalist John Bush has one of the most powerful and emotional voices in thrash, and he shined as bright as the full moon on this night. Joey Vera was as cool as ever on the bass and backing vocals. Drummer Gonzo Sandoval and his brother, guitarist Phil Sandoval bring the family bond that draws in the audience.
