It was a pretty awesome show, i must say. The sound quality was pretty poor if you ask me, especially for Volbeat and Lamb of God. I guess that's sorta what I had expected from MSG. I will have their sets as soon as I fully remember them. As for Metallica:

1. That Was Just Your Life
2. The End of the Line
3. For Whom The Bell Tolls :party:
4. Holier Than Thou :blaze:
5. One
6. Broken, Beat, & Scarred
7. Cyanide
8. Sad But True
9. Turn The Page
10. All Nightmare Long
11. The Day That Never Comes
12. Master of Puppets
13. Fight Fire With Fire :rocker::rocker::rocker:
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman

-Encore-
16. Helpless
17. Whiplash :rocker:
18. Seek and Destroy

Fight Fire With Fire, Whiplash and Holier Than Thou were a nice surprise. Last time I saw Metallica was in Newark, and they had already done For Whom The Bell Tolls, so I didn't exactly get too excited. A more in depth review will probably come tomorrow.

i saw for whom the bell tolls last time in newark so i wasnt too crazy about that, but hearing fight fire with fire and whiplash made up for it. Awesome show!!

agree about the sound.
the in-the-round system doesn't really work in that setting, IMO.

this was the 4th show of this tour I've seen and the worst sounding.

it was nice to get whiplash, fight fire, helpless, and hoiler.

they're gonna bring the goods tomorrow night.
glad i'm goin again!

Should be a standard song on their setlist! :D

Fuck off Roddy.


'Twas a great show, though I have to say seats for a Metallica show are not the most fun thing. It kinda sucks when you seem to be the only die-hard fan in your section. I had GA last time in Uniondale, so much better than seats (and that show's setlist raped last nights). Anyway all I gotta say is if your are planning to see Metallica, try your hardest to get Floor tickets, it really makes all the difference.

And Fight Fire kicked a shitload of ass, even though I was the only real thrasher is the seats :lol:

I like Turn the page. AS A BOB SEGER SONG. They could have put creeping death, disposable heroes, frantic, And justice for all (That would make shows longer) etc. there. Three ballads is too much. If it was up to me, One would the only ballad.

for anyone interested, these were the Lamb of God and Volbeat sets:

Lamb of God
1. The Passing/In Your Words
2. Set To Fail
3. Walk With Me in Hell
4. Now You've Got Something To Die For
5. Ruin
6. Dead Seeds
7. Laid to Rest
8. Redneck
9. Black Label

I honestly wanted to enjoy these guys, since it was my first time ever seeing them. I just genuinely couldn't because the sound was just so awful. I could barely hear any of the guitars and vocals, it was just all bass (mostly double bass drum of course). I hope to see them in a better venue where the sound won't suck as much...

Volbeat
1. The Human Instrument
2. Sad Man's Tongue
3. Hallelujah Goat :rocker:
4. ?
5. ?
6. Still Counting

There may have been one song in the middle that I didn't recognize. The sound was alittle better for these guys than for Lamb of God, but it still was difficult to even hear. The volume was so low that people behind me were talking normally over the music the entire time. :mad: I was disappointed they didn't play "Wild Rover of Hell" seeing as how it actually has a Metallica reference in the lyrics. Last time I saw these guys, I didn't know who they were and they opened for Nightwish at the Nokia Theater. There, the sound quality was perfect and they played a great 45 minutes set. I guess the Garden didn't exactly treat their sound very well...

As for Metallica, this was my 3rd show seeing them (all of which were on this tour) and this was by far my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, it was an awesome show, but it just wasn't that enjoyable. I had shitty seats, while last 2 times i had the exact middle, but like 19 rows up (awesome view though) and then 1st row by one of the corners of the stage. This time, i had seats in the 3rd tier, off to the side so we were facing the corner of the stage. It wasn't a bad view, but i would've liked to have been closer. The setlist itself was pretty awesome though. I wasn't expecting to hear either Holier Than Thou or Fight Fire With Fire, so i was pretty happy. Only disappointing part was getting Turn The Page, since I'm really not a big fan of that song. Oh well. They were tight as hell and played great.

I will be seeing them again at the Garden tonight. This time, 5th row center :D and I'm expecting it to be even more awesome

Thank you so much. I heard him say cover, but i didn't hear who and i had no idea what song it was. I did recognize that ?? song that it seems we both have no idea of, but i just can't remember the name or what album it's on. And i can't believe i forgot to mention the raining blood part

Actually if you seen them live 3 ballads is perfect. It gives both the audience and the band a few minutes to relax after rockin out so hard to the faster heavier stuff. I don't like NEM but at my show they did Damage Inc before it and it fit perfect there because it gave everyone a chance to mellow out for a few before they hit you with Sandman.

It's actually a smart move by the band they wanna make sure that not only they have to energy to go all the way through the set but you gotta make sure you don't burn out the crowd and make sure they keep the energy up for the whole show. Metallica used to do sets with Fade, Sanitarium, One and Unforgiven in them all the time. So it's not like it's anything new for them to play some slower ones. It's really does help pace things out better for everyone involved.

Do you really think Lars could play drums like he does live for two hours every show without a few ballads thrown in so he can catch his breath?

It used to be in the sets all the time before they started rotating songs around live in 2004. They're always rotating a song off KEA in that spot every night so it still does show up some regularity still.

Metalheads need a "break?" What is this world coming to? I'm paying to rock out, not sit and watch aimlessly as a band plays a no-talent song.

I assume the song you're talking about here is NEM right?

I don't listen to Metallica, I just saw that you said they played 3 ballads. That's a bit to many for a "thrash metal" band to be playing.

OK that's cool but even I wouldn't consider Metallica thrash anymore. Yes they still play the old thrash stuff live but they certainly aren't that now. They've been writting ballads ever since RTL and they've always been part of their live sets I guess some people just don't like that kinda stuff. Even though Fade, Sanitarium and One get fast and heavy during the second half of the song and aren't ballads all the way through like that peice of crap song NEM.

Overall the show was good, but I was slightly disappointed with Metallica's setlist. Realistically they could have dropped "Holier Than Thou" and 1 of the Death Magnetic songs for something better. I was actually fine with hearing "Turn The Page" since I hadn't heard that one live before, but even still, that song wasn't exactly a highlight.

On the other hand, "Fight Fire With Fire", "Helpless" and "Whiplash" were awesome. :rocker:
