Anytime I see Fight Fire With Fire I want to be there and that encore
While I do like DM and think it's more of a return to form for them, I agree with you about playing less new songs in every set. They can do three or four each night off DM and just rotate the songs from it. I think Life, Line, Nightmare and Judas would be fine for the rest of the tour. They've been together almost 30 years now and they fall into the whole "band who should be playing their best of sets now" territory if you ask me.

As for Am I Evil? I don't know if it was played in full at this show or not. I didn't read any show details on the web page, I just got the set and that was it. Throughout the 80s and into the mid 90s it was in just about every set. In fact Metallica played it so often live that most fans thought it was their song since Diamond Head was such an obscure band in the US. You'd have to figure that somewhere along the way they use to play it in full. I think it was when they started touring for TBA that the shorter version came along and that's what they've done for the most part since then. I'm sure the full version has popped up here and there in recent years though.

We basically agree but I think two songs from Death Magnetic is enough. I like the album, it's better than anything they have done since the Black Album, but I don't love the album like their first five.

They do basically play a best of set every night, the problem is they have so many 'best of' songs that they can't play them all. I think they need to start doing album tours, mixing in other good songs after. So like RTL, mix in Welcome Home, Master of Puppets, One, etc.... at the end. Hell, I'd drop $100 just to see RTL played in it's entirety.

I disagree. I like the one-two punch of That Was Just Your Life right into The End Of The Line.

I'd rather have The End Of The Line than any of the songs you mentioned, except for Creeping Death and maybe Disposable Heroes.

Agreed.

I like seeing FFWF in there, but hate the fact that Battery is now in the encore slot. That slot should be left as a rotation for rarities from Kill em All and Trapped Under Ice. Less songs from DM would be nice. Eliminating Fuel for good would be great IMO.

You all have to remember that they are touring to SUPPORT DM so they're going to play at least 4-5 songs from it just like any other band who tours to support their new album.
