Seeing Metallica tonight
Praying for Orion
Bands never come to Scotland unless they're doing a UK tour, it's always England (Although this time I don't think metallica even did England, it was Wales )
By the way how much do metallica tickets cost, round about?
Mine was $150 AUS
woah that's like over £100 isn't it?
I hate how big bands can charge that much and fill massive venues :argh: it's costing me £75 to go see Roger Waters, just learnt that earlier today. I'm gonna have to either not go, or not go to other bands I wanna see live. I'll probably ditch Periphery. I'm kinda prioritising Roger Waters because it's very likely the last time he'll ever perform. And it's in England so there's extra travel expense and probably staying over night somewhere.
Well I was at the very back of the arena. The pit was around $300 I think.
Holy shit. Fucking extortion.
Were you sitting or standing?
they gotta make their money somehow since no one buys their CDs in anymore
/music business major
I'm sure they have enough money.
I would pay more to see Metallica. The show I went to was one of the best nights of my life.
Fucking amazing setlist for the last show of the tour
FUCKING DISPOSABLE HEROES
And they nailed Leper Messiah, which I love but wasn't expecting it to be that great live.
that is a kickass set besides unforgiven 3 which is absolute shit
I liked the Unforgiven 3, it was one of my favorites off the album. Maybe I'm weird.
Same here its one of my favorite songs
ANGER!!! MISERY!!! YOU'LL SUFFER UNTO ME!!!
That's a pretty fun song to play drums to. Well then again most metallica songs are. But I just started doing seek and destroy and it's such a workout and it's fun to do what lars does an improvise most of the song.
The "cheap seats" were $100.
Bigger venues means higher initial expenses and booking fees, so only the biggest bands get to play there, and because of their extra fees and standing in the music world, they get to charge more and still sell said venues. Artists' profit comes from touring and merchandise almost entirely.
I was still on crutches when they came to NYC and I had no feasible way of getting to/from Manhattan at the time. Same goes for Iced Earth.
Otherwise, I just might have to kill you for witnessing something that awesome which I will never get to see.
Oh yeah something else worth mentioning.
My related teacher met and jammed with kirk hammet.
Yeah I am and I guess it might be that hard compared to what, some garbage from Load?
It's incredibly easy. Like "Paranoid" easy. Even the fills are incredibly easy. By far the easiest song to play on Kill 'em All.
Awesome performance of Fade to Black from 1985, there's a slight glitch in the video at about 2:53-2:56, nothing terrible though.
I still can't bring myself to like Thing that Should not Be. It just seems like such a feeble song compared to everything else on the album.
I still need to learn Orion..
Really? It's one of those songs that really sucks you in if you ask me, and the climax at the solo is fucking amazing, really is a perfect musical representation of spiraling into insanity
Yeah if you ask me it's the second best song on the album
Play it louder, maybe you'll like it then

Yeah old but funny
I'd rank the tracklist as:
2. Disposable Heroes/Welcome Home
3. Damage Inc./Master of Puppets
4. Battery (even then the song is a letdown after the intro, apart from the post-solo riff)
5. Leper Messiah
6. Thing That Should Not Be
Anyone else love The day that never comes? I love the main riff/tune structure on that one.
Whenever I listen to Master of Puppets I can't help but fast forward through the slow intros of the later songs in the album like damage inc or orion.
for AJFA I only skip during blackened to the point where I can hear the fade in
I don't mind MoP particularly amazing but its production feels soft and it's nice, easy and enjoyable to listen to.
