Once in a Lifetime

Posted by The Wine Whore |


Last night I did something that I should have done a long time ago. I finally went to see one of my all-time favorite bands in concert: Metalica. Here's what they had to say about it:





It was everything I thought it would be: loud guitars, tons of energy, and a packed arena. After the show my ears were ringing so loud, I couldn't even sleep. Now that's the mark of a great metal show!

I was a little disappointed with lead guitarist, Kirk Hammett's guitar solo. It kinda sounded like he had never played it before. There were also a couple of moments where I picked up on a musical blunder during the set. Otherwise, the band was solid for their old age.

Prepare yourself for a few surprises during the set. I'll let you discover those on your own when Metallica comes to your town. This is truly a comeback tour for this group. Don't be like me and miss seeing this band. It's an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.

I haven't listened to Metallica since "Enter Sandman", but I did see them with GnR on the Monsters of Rock Tour in '92 at the "big sombrero" and solo in '93. They put on an awesome show!

The first time I saw them, Hetfield had previousl hurt is arm in a pyrotechnics accident and the guy from Metal Church played his parts.

Hello Nate!

That's awesome! Those must have been two awesome shows. I remember that whole pyro accident and the dude from Metal Church filling in... was it still the same?

There was a lot of great energy... I wish I could have seen a show before this one to compare how things have changed now that the band has gotten older.

Either way, they still kicked ass!

Cheers!

Nothing having a bottle of wine while listening to Metallica, or at least smashing a bottle of wine.

Awesome concert.

I couldn't agree more! A nice cold beer works well too... smashing the bottle is a must! :)

Cheers!
