If it was Load and/or ReLoad in full I would go and suck up the ticket + hotel + gas/tolls + food/beer costs. And since it's AC, you know gambling costs are gonna have to be factored in too. But that much $ for a totally shitty lineup and the need to see Escape & The Struggle Within just isn't enough sadly. 2.5 hours isn't a crazy drive, but can't commit to this unfortunately.

And if you've ever been to AC, you will know sleeping in your car is definitely NOT an option.

The answer is simply that I haven't seen them perform a good number of the songs from that album, and it's one that I absolutely love. Today's Metallica may not be as strong as the 80's version, but I'll take what I can get.

For a metal fest, sure. This isn't supposed to be that, though. It's supposed to be a "Metallica-curates-a-summer-rock-fest-and-headlines-both-nights" thing. Which in my book, isn't the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

EDIT: If Metallica showed up at Coachella or Bonnaroo and headlined not one but several nights, half of you people would be all like WWWWWOOOOOOO METALLICCCAAAA!!!! WWWAAAHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!! TAKE THAT YOU PUSSY ROCK FAGS!!!!!

What a fucking joke. I'd be more inclined to pay $150 and go if only Metallica was playing and I wouldn't have to sit through a heap of shit.

You are right on that. But the thing is, with them playing Ride the Lightning, metalheads are going to be attracted to it, and that contradicts what the lineup is geared towards.

That's what I said to myself before I saw Coroner, and I (as well as many others) was left disappointed like no other.

The fact that you would go through that much to hear those alternative rock knockoffs live in their entirety instead of Escape or Struggle Within makes you an asshole.

Alrighty. I'm just saying I've already seen every single one of those RTL songs besides one of course, and the other album isn't that great to begin with, I've seen all the hits of course, Struggle is the only real thing left to see.

Besides, they sais it's the only No. American performance for 2012 of those records, so that leaves the door open for future years, which is ok with me, I can wait.
