Metallica XXX

So for everyone that bitches about Metallica, and how you may or may not like what they’ve become, what they’ve done over the years, etc. you have to take your hats off to them for the Metallica XXX thirty year anniversary celebration of the band. They essentially played 80 songs in four nights with an assortment of guests. Metallica is one of the last remaining bands that actually rotates their set list on a nightly basis. I’ve often heard people boast about the band being able to play 40 different songs at any given moment. But 80? Who does that? There are bands that can consider themselves more “kult” or “true” etc. But none of these other bands (sans Pearl Jam and U2) have the sack or repertoire, to actually pull it off. Or in the case of a lot of heritage acts (boy do I hate that term) just too damn lazy to do it.

Here are the setlists for all four shows, hopefully we’ll end up with a DVD of some sort.
