Warchest is a box set from the American heavy metal band Megadeth. Warchest features five discs (4 CD + DVD) and features studio tracks, demos and live recordings of a number of the band's songs from its previous eleven studio albums and rarities EP. The box set was released on October 9, 2007 by EMI/Capitol Records, and sold around 1,100 copies in the United States in its first week.
While the content on discs 1-3 is assorted, disc 4 was recorded live at Wembley Arena, London, England, on October 14, 1990. The location and date is incorrectly listed in the liner notes. The liner notes and packaging list disc 4 as being recorded at Wembley Stadium on October 16th, 1990. The concert featured on disc 4 was the last date on the European leg of the "Clash Of The Titans Tour" in 1990. This tour (including Megadeth) played Wembley Arena on October 14th, 1990. There was no concert on October 16th or at Wembley Stadium, for that matter. Furthermore, during the concert set, just before the Megadeth plays the song "Good Mourning / Black Friday", Dave Mustaine asks the crowd, "Today's Sunday, right?...". This can be clearly heard on the CD. October 14th fell on a Sunday in 1990. October 16th was a Tuesday. The "Clash Of The Titans Tour" also featured Suicidal Tendencies, Anthrax and Slayer during the European leg. Disc 5 is DVD, and it was recorded live at Hammersmith Odeon, London, England, on September 30, 1992. Its audio was encoded to stereo Linear PCM. The DVD does not include Megadeth's full performance from that night.
