I still don't understand why people like this band...

Some people don’t understand why I love Rush.

Some people don’t understand why I hate Axl Rose’s voice.

Individually, I wouldn’t put any Metallica member near the top of their respective instrument BUT they have 2 albums that I love, 3 that I like. That’s enough for me, and more than most bands in the grand scheme of things.

I love RUSH.
I love Axl Rose and Guns N Roses.
I love the first ok four METALLICA records.

"It's a matter of opinion...."

Fun Fact:   Did you know Les Claypool tried out for Metallica?  As they were all impressed with his audition they all told him that he would be better off finding his own niche.  

He did!

Yes, I read an article on that way back when Sailing the Seas of Cheese was new.

If Metallica would ever think about the old school fans for once and do "Master Of Puppets" all the way through.  I would go.

Does this make me a hypocrite?

Probably.

Who cares.

They played all of Master of Puppets at Summer Sonic (summer music festival) in Osaka in 2006. EVERY track and in a row. I was there and so close to the stage that the sweat from Kirk Hammett’s curls was spraying my area. I let it slide though because he had some Marvel character design on one of his guitars. :P

They played almost nothing from Re-Load and St. Anger. Good! Towards the end, they played a track off the then-unreleased Death Magnetic.

Excellent show.

:hail:

You lucky bastard!  No wonder I love you!  METALLICA USED TO RULE!

Saw Metallica just twice (in 2013 and 2006) at that same summer festival.

The 2013 festival had more bands I was interested in:
((I went both days of the festival))
http://www.summerson...neup/osaka.html

But the 2006 festival was the one when they played all of Master of Puppets:
((Just went on the day Metallica played; wasn’t really interested in many other bands but I’m glad I went because of the Puppets surprise treat - it was MoP’s 20th anniversary soooo they played it all))
http://www.summersonic.com/06/

And here’s that 2006 gig’s setlist:
http://www.setlist.f...n-5bd6dfe0.html
Just ONE song (total) played from Load, ReLoad, and St. Anger! Excellent! That’s fewer than I remembered! :hail:

I plan on going to Tulsa or Wichita show.  Can't get tix when they go on sale so I hope there is some available later.

This might be one of those tours where waiting to buy tickets on stubhub as the show gets closer might be the best option. There are a ton of presales and it looks like nothing will be left for anybody once they officially go "on sale to the public" friday morning. There are at least six presales for the show here and I imagine it's the same everywhere else. My brother even signed up for the Metallica fanclub to get tickets for the show with their presale and he couldn't even log in the site was so jammed up. He tried later and the presale for our show was sold out. Not even joining the fanclub helped. The ticket sale system for these big arena/stadium shows has become a complete mess over the last few years.

Good luck getting tickets.

No Western Canada shows :(

And by that I mean BC, Alberta.  No way I'm travelling to Saskatoon or Winnipeg

Last summer they did a stadium tour that hit a lot of the bigger markets. Did they play anything in Western Canada last year? If they did then that's probably why there's no dates for you or in the bay area (Earl brought that one up). This tour is hitting a lot of the secondary cities they haven't been to in a long time.

I haven't seen Metallica since the '98 Reload Tour, but then again they've been pretty scarce around KC. I wasn't about to drive 8 hours round trip last year to STL to hear Lars NOT play double-bass. But, I gotta go this time. But WTF??!!! I seriously have to lay down money A FULL YEAR before they come here? Tix go on sale 3/2/18 and they play KC 3/6/19! The chrome plated balls on those f***s.

For those of you that don't get Metallica--particularly their first 4 albums...you are mental midgets.

I've yet to see Metallica but hope to remedy that on this tour, with hope being the key word. As a member of the 2nd tier fan club, I had access to the 2nd pre-sale yesterday (the 1st one was for the long time, hard core, paying fan club members). I logged on about 27 minutes after it started (freaking work getting in the way again) and there were no tickets available and I only wanted 1.   So I guess I'll try Friday when the general sale starts. :rage:

I enjoy most of that. Load is the one that's a little up and down for me.

Yes they played Vancouver and Edmonton last year, and I saw the Edmonton show.   Would love to see them again.

I bought tickets for Roger Waters on October 21st 2016, for his show October 28th 2017.  I agree, anything longer than six months is a long time to wait for a concert.

These big acts are grossing a million bucks a show and turning around an investing that money for 6-12 mos before they even come to town. So anyway....anyone know who might be opening?

$310 for two tickets in the upper nosebleeds. No thanks....
I paid less than that per ticket for Rush and I was ridiculously close.

Wow, if they're charging that much for the upper level then where are the $65 seats that are listed on the site? I'm not sure I'll be going to this show now. My brother got shut out on three of the presales and they're charging that much for the upper level? I'd love to see them again but it just doesn't seem worth it. Maybe I can luck out and get something cheap on stub hub as the show gets close.

I'll go see Ozzy in Syracuse or something instead. I'm seeing Anthrax tonight so I get to see a few of the Big 4 before they retire
