    Re: DEC 8th....Me....Metallica.....

    I haven't seen em since the Madly in Anger with the World Tour.

    Wanted to see them when they came to San Diego in the Death Magnetic Tour but Financial reasons lead me not to.

    Then when I went to check out the LA show coming up, they were sold out.

      I hate to say I've seen them 8 times which is enough. I saw them on their Master of Puppets tour and that last time was probably 19 years ago during their Black Tour. Great live band but I only like their old school stuff.

        It've been nice to see them with Cliff....But ya know, the whole being born the year he died kinda hindered that, so I'm slightly jealous....Their set on this tour is pretty much old songs with Death Magnetic tracks thrown in, so I guess you're not alone in liking their old stuff and they know that.

          First time I saw them was after Cliff died. It was the Monster of Rock tour and they were still working on Justice album. They did play "Harvest of Sorrow" as a teaser. Amazing concert. My favs were at Long Beach area where Queensryche opened for them during the Justice Tour.

            I used to really love Metallica, but after the Napster controversy, I want to make sure they never see another dollar of my hard earned money again.

              I saw them on the "Black Album" tour and they were indeed amazing to see live. I heard a live recording of one of their shows on the St. Anger tour and I was less than impressed. James was having the audience sing 1/2 the songs. I didn't pay all that $$ to hear these drunk ***es sing, I want to hear his drunk *** sing. Oh sorry, his un-drunk *** now.

              That said, hope the show is good and you have fun. If your a fan you should see them at least once.

                That's a pretty idiotic statement....Or at least very ignorant. What are you 12? Ey, buddy, when you grow up, open a business so I can rob you. That's ok right?? No? Oh, it'd make you mad too? hm.....

                    I know what you mean. I saw them during St Anger tour and....naw. lol. It wasn't as spot on as it was when I saw them on the Reload tour, or the 2000 Summer tour. The tapes I've checked out of them recently have been quite good, though. So I'm looking forward to it....I agree. Every fan should see em at least once...

                      The opened for Scorpions & Van Hagar. The crowd was obviously more there for Metallica than the other 4 bands. The people went absolutely nuts, didn't matter if you or I was playing bass.

                      No attack needed. She has her reasons for not liking them, you don't need to break out the maturity card when you are showing little yourself.

                        concerts just aren't worth the money they charge these days.

                        I've seen metallica in both arena and stadium venues... I'll enjoy their music from the comfort of my personal space. Paying $50-$100 to mosh with 30k other people just isn't in me anymore.

                          I wasn't questioning her maturity....her business sense, yea I was attacking., thus why I asked her age. I sell music as a living. Albums aren't cheap to make and are very time consuming, so someone saying they won't listen to a band they "love" because they aren't allowed to steal their records is an idiotic statement that sounds prepubescent and ignorant. Maybe if I wasn't involved in the business, I wouldn't take it personally, but I am, so I'm going to stand by it. It's like saying 'I love Disneyland, but since I got in trouble for trying to sneak in, I'm not giving them any of my hard earned money.' See my point?


                          On a more positive note, So you got to see Van Halen when Eddie was still doing back flips? lol. I saw them in 94-95??? at Arco Arena, and they were great live, but I still heard people grumble about how great they used to be...

                            To each his own. I can't say I don't agree with you, though, about the concert prices. It is a hell of a lot to put on a concert but, man some prices are outrageous. Its been a long while since I've been to a concert, so I am looking forward to it!!!

                              I know what you are saying, it was just relayed poorly. When all of that was going on I hated that Lars was doing a lot of the speaking because he really isn't a very smart person, he seems kind of not all there. James on the other hand deserves respect because he's all business. I have no problems with musicians fighting piracy, it's nice to get paid for your work.

                                I'm 31. It took me many years to become this idiotic and ignorant. I can't for the life of me think of any other response to this comment.

                                  Pretty much at my last concert with metallica and linkin park where I pretty much experienced the crowd crush in the GA field... I saw very clearly how people can die or get seriously hurt in conditions like that. Combine that with the meatheads whose purpose in life is to pick fights with people just so they can feel all powerful when there are like 8 of them... I eventually just went to the back of the crowd and watched where I could breathe, sit down, and just enjoy the show.

                                  Besides, when you're an old dude.. and the majority of the crowd is under 20.. you're the old dude at the club.

                                  The last concert I saw was Springsteen this summer.. from a fully catered suite with open bar. It was nice to hang out with my friends and others in a casual setup with all those perks.. but would it have been worth hundreds of dollars to do? hell no. I only went because it was free for me.

                                  I enjoy a band at a bar/club more... even if its just a good cover band. And I didn't have to drop a Benjamin to enjoy it either.

                                    I miss Jason Newsted in Metallica. I loved it when he sang the Kill 'Em All stuff live.

                                    Was awesome when he was playing with em at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony tho.

                                      There is absolutely nothing wrong with disliking a band for their stance on on certain issues.

                                      First of all, it was The stones, Emienem, DMX, or any of the other bands out there that have publicly stated that they are in the music industry for many reasons but the main reason being for the money. Metallica was, up till after the back album, was all about their fans. If it was not for the hardcore early fans. This was a band that was made by fans tape trading live shows to other fans. When they got a taste of well deserved success they, or rather, Lars went aper **** over the fans "stealing food from my table!" Er, Um did ya watch "Some kind of monster"? It didn't look like any of them, especially Lars was hurting for money. Metallica is not some indie rock band depending on their record sales to eat. Metallica is a band, made famous by it's fans, that got really greedy and that put a bad taste in some fans mouths, like me.

                                      I have not owned or had anything to do with them since "The Black Album", for the exception of watching "Some Kind of Monster" on VH1, and I will not have anything to do with them ever. Although i will say this for them, it was a class move to allow Jason Newsted to join them for the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.

                                      Plus, for future reference, there is no need to personally attack someone who disagrees with whom you like and don't like, unless you want the thread to end up in the Litter Box. You like Metallica, great, I used to once, now I don't, because of whatever reason. If you don't like the reason debate it, don't attack. It makes it harder for people to get behind your arguments.
