San Francisco, CA@
Chase Center
September 11th 2019
AN UNBELIEVABLE CONCERT!!! Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra blended together perfectly as they performed an updated Setlist, which included older classics from the original S&M of 20 years ago along with selected fan favorites covering the years since. An historic event as this concert was only the 2nd event ever held at the just constructed $1.5 billion, 18,000 seat Chase Center in San Francisco, only a mile from Oracle Park and on the Bay. The venue's seating design allows for reasonably good viewing-even from the higher "nose bleed" seating sections. However, many fans commented on the "steepness" of the steps going down to their seats, as well as the climb up the steps when leaving their seats to go to the main lobby. The sightlines and audio were superb for excellent viewing and hearing from every seat in the venue of this performance "in the round", and enhanced by a slowly "rotating" stage, allowing everyone in attendance an equal opportunity to see and hear. Their were many surprises and firsts as this over 3 hour concert unfolded, which included frontman James Hetfield-without a guitar-singing by himself as the Symphony accompanied him. A "tribute" song, specially written to honor the memory of the late Cliff Burton, was superbly performed by a member of the Symphony. Finally, Metallica and the Symphony teamed together to flawlessly perform a song that highlighted the very best of both. As usual, the light show and computer graphics were mind-blowing!! And the highly difficult task of getting a good mix of Metallica and the Symphony went without a hitch, and the sound quality was outstanding. Metallica gave a trademark "indescribable" performance and had the tremendously appreciative fans in awe of their hometown heroes. The entire concert was professionally filmed and recorded for a 1 night only showing in over 3,000 theaters nationwide, scheduled for Friday evening, October 11th, and tickets can be preordered now. For those fans who were not one of the lucky ones to have witnessed this once in a lifetime event, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND viewing the movie on October 11th. I will NEVER FORGET THIS SHOW!!!
Metallica were awesome, great sound and pyro. A bit cheesy playing a few Irish tunes, always knew they'd play Whiskey in the Jar but Wild Rover was a bit much. There wasn't anyone in the support acts that I wanted to see and Ghost really are as good as a bag of dicks! Regular ticket holders were too far away considering tickets cost so much because the "Golden Circle" rip off area was so bloody big!
Metallica was amazing!!! They always deliver a great show! However I reserved a star due to the excessive long wait for them to take stage. Doors opened at was advertised to start at 7:30pm.... band didn’t take stage until 9pm. So from roughly 6:30-9pm we had to listen to the local radio DJ and very unfunny Jim Breuer..... everyone in my section was about ready to leave due to the stupid sing alongs and name that tune crap from the preshow lackeys. We want Metallica, not 2.5 hours of listening to the radio and a washed up college comic.
Last night's show at Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas was amazing. I haven't seen Metallica since they played Brown Field (San Diego) in July 31, 1994. It was by far the worst venue I have ever been to, but Metallica made up for the terrible location (literally a brown field - just dirt). They closed with "Enter Sandman" to a capacity crowd. None of the seats were bad; Lars' drum kit was on a revolving pedestal and the band faced all directions equally. Well worth the cost of tickets and the 33-hour drive from Capitan, New Mexico.

I loved it the stage show was awesome! I that it was really cool how they played some stuff I didn't expect. I liked how in Now That We're Dead they added extended drums in the song. Though the arena sound wasn't that great that didn't stop Metallica from rocking the show! Jim Breuer was funny and Metallica rocked!!! I really liked the set list and they did really try to make your money's worth! It was awesome!!!!!

First time seeing Metallic live! Excellent show! Big production! Love how they treat their fans and all the cool things they do to personally connect with them! Show was amazing and held alotta surprises (if you don't follow the tour on YouTube). Loved hearing Metallica songs performed live that are actually being played by Metallica! Metallica was absolutely a 5 star show! Only complaint was the arena sound. Snare, guitars and vocals were just lost in the mix most of the show. Definitely looking to see them again at a different venue.
