i havent seen them since 2000 and with the last few albums i never thought i would again. but since death magnetic was so good i went anyway. had great seats and they kicked ass.

some pics for you.

























the coffins were pretty badass.

Cool.

I didn't really like Death Magnetic, but one or two of the songs grew on me.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 6:27:46 AM EST
Wow, those coffins look sweet.

I'd love to go, but the $100+ tickets are ridiculous.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 6:29:21 AM EST
tickets were around $85.

I'll give them credit where its due. For whatever reason , they are still able to pack a stadium.

My opinion, (hey, everyone has one) , they should have retired after AJFA , or maybe the Black Album.

They should have retired after And Justice for All.

See much Skin? I was at a Motley Crue concert a year or so ago and I would swear I was at a stipper convention. More tits in a single day then I have seen in oh 16-years since I got married PLUS several years before that. Most were worthy of showing off too

Naw, Load and ReLoad were better than Kill 'Em All and Ride the Lightning.

Great, another thread where people will bitch about them "selling out" or "sucking" after Justice. Here's a hint, don't like a song, skip it.
Metallica rocks. That is all.

I wont argue with that. The Black Album was definately the turning point; and everything afterwards, for me, just wasnt the same.

Wait did you really just say Death Magnetic was good? What the fuck?

Metallica hasn't been good for a long, long time.

this - i use to love their shit back in college, after the whole napster thing they bitched about, the music went down hill.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 6:44:49 AM EST
Not a big fan, especially of anything after Master of Puppets. But I've seen them four times and their shows are always great.

I've said it before ,but the most outrageous concert I ever went to was a Bon Jovi concert I got dragged to in high school. It was like fucking Sodom and Gomorrah. As a 16 year old kid, I really had no idea what I was in for. We got back stage passes, where we noticed that even the one-armed cyclops stage hands were two-at-a-timing the groupies. I have never seen a greater spectacle of open debauchery at any time since.

Say what you will about the music, but those guys had the "sex" part from the venerable sex, drugs and rock & roll triumvirate taken care of, and then some.

ETA: The "real" bands we saw –– Metallica, the Crue, Ozzy, Kiss, all had lots of groupies... but nothing like the hair band guys.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 6:46:10 AM EST
Did Hammett try to break a guitar this time?

He did that when I saw them in 91 or 92 for the Black album. He had a very hard time breaking it. I had to laugh. For a guy that rocks out as hard as he does you'd think it would be easier...
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 6:46:18 AM EST
Alpine Valley , Wisc. late 80's Van Halens Monsters of rock tour was awesome. Metallica kicked ass.

I'll go even futher to say they totally suck. Don't like them at all. I would say it didn't even sell out or if it did, it sold out at the last minute. They were advertising it on tv and radio pretty heavy.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 6:48:09 AM EST
Seen them 7 times, once on Master with Cliff on bass, 3X AJFI and 3X Black album. Not much interest in them now.

Oh I know I know, you listened to them back before they were on the radio and before the music videos and therefore your opinion is more valid than mine. Super.

OP posted a thread for fans, and then everyone else comes in here and shits on it. Awesome.

I'm younger than Master and older than Justice. Whoop-de-doo.

Watched them 10/08 here in KC, looks like they had the same set up as they did there. Pretty nice show, I wasn't really impressed with the balloons at the end while playing Seek and Destroy.

I paid $100 for 1st row at the Rosemont in 1992. Caught a pick thrown by Kirk. Damn prices have gone up.

they played a lot of stuff from death magnetic, but i was glad to hear it.

in no particular order they played,

ride the lightning
where ever i may roam
sad but true
enter sandman
nothing else matters
last caress
motorbreath
seek and destroy (last song, james ran around with a mic letting the crowd sing)
master of puppets
sanitarium
disposable heroes
damage inc
one
and a lot of death magnetic songs

I have seen them a couple of times (Black album and earlier tours) and I think they are horrible live. But-AH! I think-AH! that they were-AH! the-AH!.....oh, for get it........AH!

I saw them Tuesday in Cincinnati. The sound quality was incredible, particularly for the crappy venue they had. It was probably the best show I've ever seen. The boys have their act together.

Yes, I'm an unapologetic Metallica fan. I prefer their older stuff of course, but they still put out some excellent stuff.

I saw them on their Load and Reload tours. I have to say, they played one of the most enjoyable concerts I've been to.

I don't much care for anything after Reload, but I still think it's worth it to go see them.

Great pictures, btw. Thanks for sharing. It looks like it was a heck of a show.
