Metallica -- Ontario, CA -- December 12th, 2008

Oh man what a show!!!!

I was there at the rail, in front of one of the mics for the whole show!!

I went to the venue at like 8 in the morning cos I wanted to be totally sure of the spot on the rail And I sure did get it!
Met an Aussie guy Mark at the show who has come from Australia for all the 6 Cal shows. I had my Ride The Lightning flag and he had his Aussie flag up the whole time. That felt gr8!
It sure was a long wait but totally, totally worth it.
The Sword were ok .. I liked their closing song a lot. It was great headbanging fun
Loved Lamb Of God Their new songs sound coool. I honestly knew only Laid to rest and Walk With Me, but since I got hold of their setlist which was taped on the stage,here is the whole list People were going crazy in the circle pit behind me. They were letting off firecrackers lol.

Hourglass
Laid To Rest
Walk With Me In Hell
Ruin
Dead Seeds
Something To Die For
Omerta
Redneck
Black Label

Before Metallica's show a lot of smoke was let off on the stage (to add to the whole atmosphere obviously). And the fire alarm of the venue went off! That was so hilarious! "Emergency Reported. Head to nearest exit". Then there was an announement after that "There is no need to exit the building".
And some females in the 2nd tier seats section started flashing their tits to the entire crowd! And they kept asking the crowd to shout more to make them flash more lol.

After all that fun it was time for the real fun.. time for the Ecstasy of gold!!! The place from where the band went onto stage was right in front of us! We saw it all .. the band coming in, Kirk and James picking up their guitars and then running onto the stage. They sounded awesome tonight. Really did. In the pit the vocals were not sounding loud enough though. My friends in the seats told me the sound was great. And anyway we knew each and every word of Metallica's songs so the vocals didn't need to be loud

James came to the mic on our side to sing almost the whole of Sanitarium and Nothing Else Matters, and Kirk played the Master Of Puppets solo on our side, which made my day all the better

One guy jumped on the stage and he was tackled so brutally by the security that it appeared that the security was just itching for some action. The pyros were intense. We could feel the heat. It was so much fun that I felt the show flew by too fast!

Anyway here's the list:

That Was Just Your Life
The End Of The Line
Ride The Lightning
For Whom The Bell Tolls
One
Broken, Beat & Scarred
Cyanide
Sad But True
Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
All Nightmare Long
The Day That Never Comes
Master Of Puppets
Blackened
Nothing Else Matters
Enter Sandman
------------------
Stone Cold Crazy
Whiplash
Seek and Destroy

All in all, amazing show, amazing setlist, made great new friends, got a beach ball and a setlist!

Monday in San Diego will be much much better ... as I am getting to meet the band

Will post San Diego review too. Cheers.
