Metallica -- San Jose, CA -- December 12th, 2009

My first time seeing Metallica, after [guesstimation] 100 shows. Shocking.
Volbeat was pretty forgettable. That's it n that's all.
Machine Head was a little worse than I expected, their music just doesn't transfer to the Metallica atmosphere well. Yelling "I want to see a bigger circle pit" while there is a circle 20 feet in diameter empty except for 3 drunk dudes walking around is pretty Spinal Tap. Seeing them for the 3rd time with short sets and a small pool of songs takes any excitement out of it, Fucking Hostile was the only real highlight.
First I want to say that Death Magnetic still does nothing for me. The most exciting part about the opener was the web of lasers hitting the stage. But sure as shit, the old stuff delivered. Nothing like the rush of hearing, "tonight we pay tribute to.....................uh......................... ........................DIAMOND HEAD. 1-2-3-4"

Machine Head:
Ten Ton Hammer
Now I Lay Thee Down
Fucking Hostile
Beautiful Mourning

That Was Just Your Life
The End of the Line
Ride The Lightning
Harvester of Sorrow
Fade to Black
Broken Beat & Scarred
Sad But True
My Apocalypse
