|I've loved Metallica since 1984 when I first heard "Ride The Lightning". I first saw them live in 1986 (with Cliff!) on the "Master of Puppets" tour from the 10th row when they opened for Ozzy. Since then I've had the privilege of seeing them more times than I can recall, and thanks to the all mighty Metallica Club I've been able to meet the band four times - so far...|

The Cow Palace was much smaller than I expected - the smallest place outside of The Filmore that I've seen the Mighty Met. It was a general admission show and we lined up outside at 4:30pm - but it was really unnecessary as we opted for seats instead of the floor. The stage was a huge square in the middle of the floor and had a center section that slowly revolved throughout the show and seemingly had more lights than Las Vegas, complete with much pyro and lasers.. Overall a very fast paced, high energy show with the band obviously happy to be playing in front of many friends and family. We got a great set including tunes not played in years like "Holier Than Thou", my favorite track of St. Anger - "The Unnamed Feeling" and for only the 2nd time ever "Dyers Eve". The intro to "One" has been slightly tweaked to include clips from Full Metal Jacket followed by the traditional blowing up of everything on stage - the explosions at this show were the absolute loudest things I've ever heard. Everyone was holding their ears shut - each burst made me wince. A small price to pay to once again see the reigning Gods of Metal. Don't forget - you can actually by this or any show from the tour at www.LiveMetallica.com And here is another review of the show - http://www.livedaily.com/news/6212.html

They have a brand new stage and show for this tour - they are using a center stage once again, but this one is only 3 feet off the floor to keep them as close as possible to the fans. It is full of ramps and levels and has a center portion that slowly revolves so Lars ends up in being in front of everyone before the night is over. Here are a couple shots from opening night.
