Metallica - November 21, 2010

By jeffreyhuge, Mon, 22 Nov 2010 18:01:06 +1100

First up, the epic final concert of Metallica's 2 year World Magnetic World Tour.

After 182 concerts across 46 countries in a tour that started in October 2008, fitting really that Melbourne’s 5th sold out Rod Laver Arena concert was Metallica’s final stop in their epic production that was the World Magnetic tour.  The entire band gave it their all and left nothing in the tank as they belted out classic Metallica whilst ensuring all parts of the stadium both heard and saw their playing in all its glory courtesy of one of the many microphones that were placed around the unique stage.  As great as their newer tracks (The Thing That Should Not Be, The Unforgiven III) sounded live, it was their epic numbers (Fade to Black, One, Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters) that really threw the crowd into a frenzy.  If the fans hadn’t had enough by the encore, they were treated to a very special cover of the Misfits Die, Die My Darling as well as Trapped Under Ice, a track that up until the World Magnetic Tour had only been played 3 times live.  With the house lights up, their final track Seek and Destroy was greeted by massive black Metallica balls that came down through the crowd.  With the band seemingly not wanting to leave the stage, they gave away literally hundreds of guitar picks to the adoring fans.  It’s been 6 years since Metallica have been here last and in his emotional closing address, James Hetfield promises they’ll be back real soon!

The extensive 18 track set list, one of their biggest for the tour went a little something like this:

That Was Just Your Life
