Note: this "concert" was not announced until 3 days before hand. The cost of admission was NO JOKE 5$ (all general admission) from ticketmaster. Proceeds went to the Vancouver Food Bank

Metallica as some of you know Filmed a live concert here in Vancouver over the weekend on what they called "The Full Arsenal" tour or, more so set of show's. A bunch of us already saw the setlist from the Mexico City show's.

This show was Metallica running through the setlist one more time and grabbing extra footage. Starting and stopping after each song and changing camera angles's etc. to the directors liking. Btw the director of the recent "Predators" movie is doing this film as well.

The setlist was as follows: (730pm - 1130pm run time) including MANY breaks.
-Ecstasy Of Gold
-Creeping Death
-Creeping Death (from Second Verse)
-Bell Tolls
-Fuel
-Ride The Lightning
-One
-Cyanide
-Memory Remains
-Wherever I May Roam
-Sad But True (up to first chorus)
-Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
-...And Justice
-Master Of Puppets
-Enter Sandman
-Seek & Destroy
-Fuel (repeat from Solo on)
-One (repeat)

inbetween songs the band was either off stage or sometimes they would stay on and Jam a little bit while the cameras got shuffled around.

Lars, at a couple points during the show was teasing "Run To The Hills" and honestly not doing a good job on the cymbal work haha. Anyway Kirk tried to come in with the guitar on that song and was way too many frets off. It sounded pretty funny though.

Also during the second runthrough of One, Kirk fucked up his intro pretty bad too. Another funny loose jam moment for Metallica last night.

All in all it was a great show for 5$ and im VERY happy to have been there.

I also went on Saturday night too for the FULL Experience of this concert and whoa it was a monster show. Just wait till this movie comes out, im sure most lf you 'Tallica fans will love it.

Can't complain about a Metallica show for 5 bucks. Paid 120 for floors to Edmonton. Thanks for the report, was real curious about this. Can't wait to see the movie and see if I can see myself in the front row since they were filming there too. How was the crowd during the repeats?

From the website they said the film crew missed something from the first play after reviewing the footage so they asked Metallica to do One again along with Fuel

...Sorry, I had to.

In all seriousness now, that Metallica set for $5 isn't bad. The constant cuts would have irked me, but it's a small price to pay, I guess.

Robert Rodriguez? That's really cool - did they include Danny Trejo into the live set somehow? ha

I guess? You can't even see a shitty local band for 5 bucks!

Nimrod Antal, actually. Rodriguez produced and came up with the story for Predators, I believe.

I might be exaggerating with that "huge pile of shit" comment, but Death Magnetic is a trillion billion gazillion times better than TFF.

Didn't make it to this show, unfortunately, as it was only announced a few days beforehand and I was already leaving Vancouver on the day before.

But I did catch the first two shows (24th/25th) and they were both fucking awesome. Metallica have seriously improved over the last few tours, their performances were spot on and with a great setlist to boot.

People can slam them all they want, but Metallica still puts more effort and energy into their live shows than most bands out there. They play two and a half hours every night, switch up the setlist regularly (playing plenty of old, obscure songs), and even if they're not as intense or aggressive as the 80s you can tell they still have actual passion for their music and live show and really care about it. That's more than you can say about most bands their age.

:fist: Good to see at least one person not joining the "let's hate on Metallica" bandwagon.

I love this comment it sums up my thoughts on Metallica perfectly. I will always make an effort to see them if they are playing in my area (hell I went out of state 2 times to see 'em, 2009 in San Jose and 2011 at the Big 4 in Indio, CA) because I know they have always give effort and I feel like they can continue to do so for the next 5-10 years

Exactly. They don't need the money, they do it because they love it.
