I've also worked local road crew before when Overkill comes through, and while they are very particular about how the lights and stage setup, their road manager has been with them forever, knows how to achieve what he wants in a very short amount of time, and tries to take care of the locals. Bobby Blitz is also one of the coolest human beings on the planet, so I have a hard time seeing Overkill being malicious to the locals, just for the sake of being malicious. They're not Blind Guardian.
