They are trying to be creative with the festival lineup, they should feel free to take their setlist decisions to the next level. Of course, each night they were tied to the full album concept, so I guess that limits your options.
I can completely understand feeling obligated to play Puppets and/or One both nights, but anything else should be fair game.... even Seek and Destroy (which, to me, is one of the most boring songs on KEA.... I'll never understand the fascination....).
With Metallica, they have so many songs to choose from they could have and in my opinion should have refrained from any Black album songs on Saturday and Ride The Lightning songs on Sunday! They could have pulled more from Kill em All, Puppets, Justice, Death or Beyond Magnetic! I must say that it would've upset me if I actually paid for a 2 day pass only to hear 8 songs twice!
