Dream theater, destruction, kreator, Amon Amarth huge amounts of bands have been to China already, but Metallica is the first one did it in an arena.

Ps, Mater is missing
Pss, creeping is missing too

Just noticed that too

so:

no war (unless it's Spain then it's ok)
no drugs
no bible references I guess?

I think this would get them arrested, but they should play Eye of the Beholder, The Shortest Straw and Don't Tread on Me in a row

They won't get arrested, it's China not North Korea, though they may pay a bit fine if they play those banned songs

metal gigs in china

I was in China for 2 months in 2009, including 2 weeks in Beijing (1 in October, 1 in September). In September I saw Terror at Mao Live House and Kreator at a different venue a couple of days later. (I can't remember the name of the venue). In October on back to back nights at the Star Live House I saw Children of Bodom on Oct 22 and Arch Enemy on Oct 23rd. The censors posted the Arch Enemy show as Angela Gassow, but Arch Enemy posters were around town.These last 2 shows are posted on setlist.fm These 3 venues play metal in Beijing at least a few times a month. Lamb of God (2 shows), Firewind, Testament, Hatesphere are a few other bands that have played Star Live House. Finntroll is playing Mao Live House on Aug 23rd. There is plenty of metal in China. You don't here about it because they almost never post the setlists and the venues are small. They don't mosh very much and it drives the bands crazy. Go to China and catch a show!

Hard to believe there are still countries that aren't 3rd world that Metallica have not yet played. Very cool for them and the fans. I'd imagine the censors probably gave them a list of basically half their material that they aren't allowed play - not that it would matter, Metallica can afford basically any fine, though they would probably risk making metal bands harder to get booked, which would be a big issue.

Metallica didn't play One, Master of Puppets, or Creeping Death because the Chinese government gave them a list of 30-40 songs they were allowed to play. Those 3 songs were not among them.

NIN played there in '07. I remember reading that there was a TON of uniformed security between the crowd and the stage/band. There also was a large VIP area between the regular folk and the stage reserved for the rich & powerful. As echoed above, Trent thought it was a pretty weird show.
