Metallica -- Toronto, Ontario -- July 3rd, 1998
 
Metallica
Support: Jerry Cantrell, Days of the New
Date: July 3rd, 1998
Venue: the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, Ontario

Iíve been finding a lot of setlists from shows Iíve been to on the past so I decided to post them. Some of them are with the help of setlist.fm, but these arenít just me ripping setlists and posting them (that would be too easy). These are all shows Iíve been to and have stories to tell.

Iíll always remember this show for how much work it was just getting a ticket. I think I bought them in late 1997 or early 1998, whenever it was it was before getting tickets was easy on the internet. I had to do it the old-fashioned way; telephone. I remember starting to call Ticketmaster when tickets went on sale at 10am and getting busy signal after busy signal after busy signal for hours. Literally. I think I ended up getting through at around 4pm and somehow still got tickets, even though they were lawns.

Six months later we went to the show and ended up the FURTHEST spot you could possibly get at the Amphitheater. Thatís probably why I still hate it to this day. We showed up as Days of the New were already on stage. They sounded pretty good. They were a band that was good in small doses, a few songs was enough and that was all they got at this show. My friend had their first album and an hour of all acoustic hard-rock got old about halfway through. This was when they were still a band before the lead guy got all rock star, fired the rest of the band and dove headfirst into obscurity. No setlist but I know they played [I]Stand and Peel[/I] last.

Jerry Cantrell was great. Iíve always said that he is the key element to Alice in Chains, and his solo stuff was great too. This was his first tour for his first solo album, [I]My Song[/I] was great, just a great song and all the Alice in Chains stuff was (obviously) awesome.

[U]Jerry Cantrell[/U]
1. Devil By His Side 

2. No Excuses 
(Alice in Chains song)
3. My Song 

4. Heaven Beside You 
(Alice in Chains song)
5. Between 

6. Got Me Wrong 
(Alice in Chains song)
7. Them Bones 
(Alice in Chains song)
8.Keep the Light On 

9. Cut You In 

10. Brain Damage / Eclipse (Pink Floyd cover)

I wasnít at the time and am still not the hugest Metallica fan but you have to see them if youíre a metalhead; so this was my show. Opening with [I]Helpless[/I] was awesome, since the Garage Days tape was one of my favorite Metallica albums. It caught a lot of people off guard but they ended up releasing Garage Inc. six months after this so they were probably just testing the waters. The whole set I just wanted to hear either [I]Leper Messiah[/I] or [I]Orion[/I], neither of which I got. But I enjoyed all the pre-Black Album stuff and the stuff from ReLoad (I actually liked that album). And after opening with a cover I was hoping they may play something else from the original Garage Day Revisited album, but again nothing. I admit that I tore this setlist from setlist.fm and I donít remember them playing [I]Creeping Death [/I]at the end, I remember them playing [I]Enter Sandman[/I] and tons of fireworks (this was at an outdoor venue) and everyone left. So maybe everyone left early?

[U]Metallica[/U]
1. Helpless

8. Nothing Else Matters 

9. Until It Sleeps 

10. King Nothing 

11. Wherever I May Roam 

12. One 

13. Fight Fire With Fire 

(break)
14. Low Man's Lyric

15. The Four Horsemen 
(Acoustic)
16. Motorbreath 
(Acoustic)
17. Sad But True 


Encore:
18. Enter Sandman 

19. Creeping Death

It was a good show. A little long actually. I swear to god they were on stage for three hours. At least I got to see Metallica once, not at their best or at their worst.

Cool review man. Would've been cool to see those acoustic songs.

x-voltage 03-08-2012 11:36 PM

Motorbreath and the Four Horsemen acoustic. That's interesting.

History will judge Load & Reload differently, but it bothered me that they didn't play more of both albums.

AND of course they didn't play much more material from the eighties than the "classics" during 1996-1999. And MOP was mostly the short version too. hm.

I would be so pissed at them for playing these acoustic.

I saw this tour when it came here. This was before Metallica changed the set up every night so everything is the same but instead of getting an embarassingly bad acoustic version of Motorbreath we got one of Last Carees instead. They most certainly ended the show with Creeping Death so i'm not sure why you don't remember it.

As for the acoustic version of The Four Horsemen, I don't think i've ever seen a band insult one of their classic songs more than Metallica did with this version. It was fuckin pathetic and Tony Iommi should've nailed each member of the band upside their head with his guitar for comiting such a metal sin.

I'm fine with acoustic songs if that's what the original arrangment is or if it's already a soft and slow song. That's why Low Man's Lyric worked fine that way but people were completely dumbfounded at the show when they did Horsemen like that. Hardly anybody sang along and everyone was just standing their with blank looks on their faces and thinking "what the fuck are they doing?" I'll never understand doing an acoustic version of a rocking song. The whole concept will never make sense to me.

Other than that, the show i went to was great. I don't remember how I got tickets but I know it wasn't as hard to get them as the OP said it was for him. I know I was within like the first 10 rows and during FFWF I could feel the heat from the fire pods that went off during it:rocker:

I can't remember Jerry Cantrell's set but i know it was a bit different. He did Down In A Hole and Would at my show.

Yup. This was the second show I ever went to (I believe I've already posted the setlist in here somewhere) and my buddy and I were fucking pissed about the acoustic songs. We had been building this show up since we bought the tickets in April or whatever and they give us The Four Horsemen Acoustic?!

Anyway, it was a good show and an incredibly fun day.

I saw this tour the week prior - June 28 in Manassas, VA. I just had a lawn seat, and remember not being very excited for the show. This turned out to be the last time (out of 7) that I saw Metallica.

The acoustic section sucked. It was an awful idea.

I distinctly remember Creeping Death being played as I was leaving the ampitheatre and avoiding the inevitable traffic jam getting out of there.

I assume DotN and JC were the openers, but for whatever reason we missed both of them.

Fail. That would have been worth seeing without Metallica!

Although before Jerry's better solo album, but still.
