METALLICA IN CONCERT: DON'T MISS METALLICA ON TOUR IN 2017

Metal heads everywhere know nothing compares to the hardcore intensity of seeing Metallica tear through monumental epics like “Enter Sandman”, “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, and “Master of Puppets” in concert. Headbanging ticket buyers rock hard to countless classics as frontman James Hetfield growls through the band's thunderous throwdowns and brutal ballads. Kirk Hammett’s sick guitar shredding and Lars Ulrich’s furious drum fills complete the sonic assault, stunning listeners with each hard-hitting breakdown and pulse-pounding riff. Still serving up the same brilliant savagery that made them thrash metal superstars in the first place, Metallica continue to unleash the metal mayhem whenever they tour. 

BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:

James Hetfield (vocals/guitar) met Lars Ulrich (drums) when the latter placed an ad in a Los Angeles-based paper in 1981. After some initial jamming, the two conscripted Dave Mustaine (guitar/vocals) and Cliff Barton (bass) the following year to play their first pioneering thrash metal shows. Mustaine was ejected for drug use prior to recording sessions for the group’s first album, so the band brought in former Exodus guitarist Kirk Hammett to complete the sessions for their 1983 debut Kill ‘Em All. Just as their star was rising, bassist Barton died in a tragic bus accident in Sweden in 1986. Despite the shock, the group felt Barton would want them to carry on, and they found a worthy replacement in Jason Newsted. Soon after, they achieved mainstream success with the 1991 release of their self-titled album, also known as “The Black Album”. The record eventually sold over 16 million copies thanks to the popularity of massive hits like “Enter Sandman”, “The Unforgiven”, and “Nothing Else Matters”. After maintaining their success through the ‘90s, Newsted left the group to focus on side projects. Robert Trujillo (Suicidal Tendencies, Ozzy Osbourne) was brought in as a replacement in time to tour for the band’s 2003 Grammy-winning album St. Anger. The revitalized quartet continues to shred at their electrifying shows on tour, where headbangers worldwide convene for unparalleled rocking.

This was 8th time seeing Metallica and it was the worst! Volbeat opened he show, and were followed by some DJ that played in Avenged Sevenfold's place. It would've better if Volbeat was moved up, and given a longer set. I've been to other shows where that's happened. My main issue was with the sound. I was in 222, and couldn't hear any vocals or guitars. I left extremely disappointed, and felt like I wasted my money. I'm never seeing another concert here again!
