What a great show! This was my first Metallica show, and wow! They were fresh off a few days rest, and their energy was excellent; you could tell they appreciated the Portland crowd.
It's cool to see Metallica tweaking their set-lists a bit every show, when you see most bands simply sticking with their same set all through their tour.
Loved the addition of And Justice...
, and a great selection of classics (Bell, Ride, Remorse).
I missed The Sword, but Down put on a great show as well; I'll definitely catch them on their next solo tour to town.
