So...so they played it backwards!

That's kinda fun.

Yep and I just confirmed that with their website.

Ehh... I mean it's an alright idea, I suppose, but I would've preferred it start to finish, then an encore.

Interesting. Would see this if it was coming closer than NJ and without all the shit bands.

I would'nt care either way, I would be just excited about hearing the 3 songs they've never played.

We're never going to get rid of Sandman in that pre-encore spot.. Cool idea I guess, playing it backwards. Shortest Straw and For Whom The Bell Tolls are far more exciting propositions in my opinion.

That seems like such a crime it's taken this long for Don't Tread On Me. The other 2 not played before are kinda meh for me but it's a shame Don't Tread has taken this long.

Well, at least the first five songs are awesome.

I would've prefered if they just did the world premeir's of TSW, MFOM and DTOM and saved the other spots for different songs instead of going through with the stupid idea of playing TBA backwards.

Jochen
05-07-2012, 06:55 PM
The first five songs are great, and I like the idea of doing the album backwards, but Seek should be changed out, maybe they should just end with One?

Creeping Death should be the regular closer. It's sad that the song is not a set staple anymore like it should be.

Meh, not a fan of playing the album backwards; it'd be a lot cooler if they opened with Sandman, did the album then do 8 songs at the end....I do dig them bringing back the snake pit

Also James is wearing a bad ass vest in most of the photos from the tour page:rocker:

^ I don't know what's more embarrassing, their performance or the attempt to act like they're anything other than a bunch of fat and happy over the hill fucks cashing in on their past success.

I'm down with hearing three songs they've never done before live. I find it hard to believe people are complaining about this set.

Meshuggah will be the opener for the next tour. And their success isn't in the past. You can hate them all you want, but they are still selling out every seat in the house.

And they are not fat, it's kinda pathetic that some anti Metallica people can't debate in a reasonable way. How old are you?

I can whine for hours about Maiden's lesser records if you don't mind.

Tony's comment seems completely reasonable. You're the one giving a knee-jerk reaction. Let me get this straight though, any band who sells out shows right now isn't cashing in on past successes? Ha.

They made their OWN decision to make Load & Re-Load, not "BOB ROCK TEH DESTROYUR". We are 15 years later now.


I'm proud to be a Metallica fan, despite crapulu.

And how's that a knee jerk reaction? Because I dare to defend MY favourite band, that happens to be Metallica?

Please.

Metallica too is my favorite band. I actually love this set list.

And instead of bashing the bands I don't get into, I choose to skip over their set lists in general. Or if looking, I keep all remarks to myself. Not every band is for every person.

Pretty cool Metallica set imo, but the encore is pretty weak in my opinion

Right, and when you got to see Van Halen and Iron Maiden this summer they're not cashing in by doing the exact same thing. You can't call one band out for it and not another. Not sure why you're calling them fat either considering the guys in Metallica have been skinny twigs since they started.

I know I haven't listened to that song in 10+ years so that was pretty damn cool.

That intro makes me want to go see Ride the Lightning now. Sitting through all that hipster crap music would be brutal though...

What does Load and Re-Load have to do with anything? Metallica's career for at least the past 10 years or so have been about cashing in on past success. It's OK, that's what happens when people run out of good ideas.

And when other bands play entire albums and/or mainly old songs it's not cashing in, I take.

It's OK, that's what happens when people run out of good ideas.I don't think they ran out of good ideas. Death Magnetic proved that. They just tried to go mainstream for a while, their fans gave them shit for it, and eventually they listened and went back to their roots and made a pretty damn decent comeback album. Nothing wrong with that, really. At the end of the day, it'd probably be better if they hadn't made Load, Reload and St. Anger, sure - but then we wouldn't have GIMMEFUGIMMEFAGIMMEDAWAZABAZA! :rocker:

Honestly, I think they figured out they were an oldies show back in 2003 and haven't changed since.
