Thought the set would be a lot different to the night before at the same venue, but surprisingly not, just basically a greatest hits show. Even more surprisingly, "One" was not played AGAIN. Still nice to see Leper Messiah though.

1. Hit the Lights
2. For Whom the Bell Tolls
3. The Shortest Straw
4. Harvester of Sorrow
5. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
6. Broken, Beat and Scarred
7. Leper Messiah
8. Wherever I May Roam
9. The Unforgiven
10. Sad But True
11. ...And Justice for All
12. Fade to Black
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman

-----------------------------

16. Stone Cold Crazy (Queen Cover)
17. Whiplash
18. Seek and Destroy

More or less "greatest hits" = 1 & 2nd time in China

No One = government censorship.

Makes sense. Must have been a long time since they've missed that off a headlining set.

There was a set in the last couple of years it wasn't played as well, but that was on a regular tour and there could have been any reason why it was dropped.

Good set, though. I have zero problem with One, it, NEM and Sandman are good spots for a piss or beer break!

Now that they're dropping major hits. Maybe it is time to drop Nothing Else Matters and Enter Sandman

I still think it's interesting that they didn't play One, Master of Puppets, or Creeping death; yet they played Leper Messiah, The Shortest Straw as well as And Justice for All...the two latter songs about government control in some form or another

Good point, but take MOP: it's about control, and despite China being modern in many ways, there's still one party, there are still concentration camps and so on...

No Master Of Puppets and One makes me a sad panda :confused:

Good to see Leper Messiah in there though and correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Broken, Beaten, & Scarred has been played many times since the actual Death Magnetic tour (2008-2010)?

If 5 times is not many times then you are correct.

Lol, why is everyone whining about the lack of two of their most played songs? I wouldn't mind not seeing/hearing ES, SBT & NEM either.
