I'd love to see Hit The Lights live! Good set, hope to get ...And Justice For All though when they finally come around here.

Thats funny every Metallica web site says they did! In case you forgot I included a web site where you can buy the mp3 to refresh you memory!

Ehh. It's cool that they played Hit the Lights, but it seems like every good song they put it replaces another good song. Notice No Remorse and Ride the Lightning missing this time.

that is really funny that most sites do say FWTBT but the people who went claim they didnt play it...interesting.

I wonder if it was on the set list initially, but they chose not to play it for whatever reason.

Here is a youtube video of them playing "For Whom The Bell Tolls" at the show in Des Moines, IA!

that's how it always is with them. they play half the set the full tour, then change the other half and encores

either a) you weren't there, b) you had your head up your ass during that part, or c) you have no idea what FWTBT sounds like because yes, they did play it. I was there and the OP's list is correct unless you want to include the 2 solos that Kirk played during the set.

Overall I'd give the show a B+. Good effort from the band and the crowd was into the show the whole time. Sound quality could have been better, it sounded like they were purposely keeping the bass drums down so on songs like Battery and One where it really should hit you, it just didn't. James's vocals came across good for the most part but there were areas when it was drown out by Kirk. Guitars sounded great. I was happy with the set list, Hit the Lights was a nice addition. Sure there where other songs I would have liked to have heard also like Whiplash, Fight Fire with Fire, Leper Messiah, No Remorse among others but I can't complain too much. Outside of them playing for 3-4+ hours, it's impossible for them to come up with a set list that will make everyone happy(even then someone will still complain about why they didn't play their entire catalog. There's just too many good songs that people want to hear to fit in a 2hr. window.

I got early sale (2 weeks before the public) tickets through metclub so I got to download the mp3 of the show from livemetallica.com for free. I burned them to cd and it sounds damn good in the car.
