Metallica -- Shanghai, China -- August 13th, 2013

1. Hit the Lights
2. For Whom the Bell Tolls
3. Fuel
4. Harvester of Sorrow
5. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
6. Broken, Beat & Scarred
7. The Memory Remains
8. Wherever I May Roam
9. The Unforgiven
10. Sad But True
11. Orion
12. Fade to Black
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman
Encore
16. Breadfan
17. Motorbreath
18. Seek & Destroy

While there is nothing super special about this setlist (expect there is no One, which is odd but they do have a 2nd show today) I'm posting this because this is the first time that I know of a metal band playing in China; I'm sure there have been other big bands in other music genres who have played in China, but I never thought I'd see a metal play;

I did a search based on thread title alone.. this is probably our first set list for a show in China, period. Nothing else shows up but this one.

It's really odd that One is missing, even if another show is scheduled. Given that it is China, censors? I don't know.

No one is a nice change, but it's gotta be the censors. Second show tomorrow.

One is still killer live, so I'd hardly call that a nice change. Now, if they decided one day "hey, fuck Nothing Else matters, let's not play it", then i'd be like "K cool"

In China, they're probably not going to be able to play any songs about war at all. No One, no Disposable Heroes, nothing like that.

Did I say it wasn't "killer"? it's just been played too much, as is NEM.

If I went to see Metallica, I'd definitely want to see One get played, that's the song that introduced me to Metallica and to heavier music in general so I'd say always play it.It's funny though, I never thought of it but I can't think of any other metal band to play China either.

I know Alcest has played gigs in China, but that's the only relatively metal group I can think of ever playing in China besides Metallica just now.

Bland setlist, but extremely cool they're playing in China.

Not sure about One being banned because of war, because Bellz is about the Spanish Civil War, if I recall. But who knows with China.
