Ugh, Paris show is nearby, but those opening bands SUCK!

I'll see how I feel about going on the week or day of one of the shows...

If "Pantera" were opening I would be first in line to get a ticket!

New song isn't bad at all, very good for a bunch of aging millionaires. But their new album will be around 77 minutes for 12 songs, I wish they would trim down their songs a bit...

Nobody goes to Mettallica to see the warm up bands. Nobody cares.

Well in 1999 I was presented with Monster Magnet and Ministry (who btw played louder than the Mets). grinning smiley
3 great acts for what? 45 Euros?

I'm a bit surprised they're playing Edmonton and not Toronto/Vancouver. I guess there's still time to add shows in July/Sept/Oct 2023.

They probably figure Vancouver & Portland covered by the Seattle show. Lot of seats to fill @ Lumen Field. Incidentally, Lumen Field actually has great sound for a stadium as it was designed for it. Unlike the baseball stadium down the street. I don't think I've seen a bad sounding show @ Lumen Field. Unusual for a football stadium. Probably same thinking for Toronto being covered by Detroit.

Its an interesting tour, in many ways. I'm excited, but a lot of strange, but I'm sure well thought out choices.

The new Pantera is the most obvious one in terms of openers. All the others are kinda on the same level-ish, but Pantera is just too big to be one of their openers. Not that it overshadows Metallica, but it does feel unfair to other places that don't get them. OR, because its not really Pantera, its a slap in the face to them that they're being compared with these other people. The tour announcement IMO should read "Metallica, at some shows with special guests Pantera, and then also all these other openers."

The locations are interesting too. I know what they're trying to do, and I think it works, but only 10 locations in the US total and they aren't even all the obvious ones. I know it won't work out for everyone obviously but I'm genuinely surprised for example that the DC area's closest show is NY. Thats not super close and I'd have thought they'd get chosen over some others there. I'm in NY so no issue to me but just saying.

Also, in terms of the tour, its a fun idea that its "no repeats" and two totally different shows (and again I'm excited for this tour so I'm not trashing, just more putting a perspective on it), but also Metallica only usually play like 16 songs a show. Basically take their 16 most played songs live (they usually play a very similar setlist unless they're doing a specific residency), spread out half to one show and half the other. Thats half the show. Then throw in 4 songs a night from their obligatory new album, and you're left with only 4 spots. And they have a pretty easy pull of 30 songs that are fairly well known that I still doubt you'll hear many rarities or anything. I know the production and show will be top notch as Metallica always is, but I do feel the "two entirely different shows" sounds like they're putting more effort into this than they actually are. Maybe I'll be wrong about that.

Again, having said all of that, I'm stoked lol. Its a cool concept, I'm glad they're still big enough where they can just do what they want and make these events. Their limited touring allows them to still play at such a high level which is cool. Props to them for still putting out new music, and I just hope ticket prices aren't insane, which I'm sure they will be.

Maybe, although you're looking at around 8 million people in the Pac NW vs a little over a million for Edmonton or 2.5 for Alberta.

Prices for TWO shows in Helsinki:

Snake Pit 562€
Standing 212€
Seats 129€-260€

For two shows this is a real good price! Hope to catch some for Munich!

There's no way he played the song the whole way through - it will be parts spliced together. He has recorded this way for years.

I'd like to be proven wrong but I don't think he'll manage that double bass the whole way through live.

Read over on PJ forum there is a ‘season ticket’ type thing for Metallica fans with cash and time on their hands - with single and multi continent and year versions - quotes as staring at around 1000 usd for ten shows GA

He’ll have to manage it live. He’s always managed before and he’ll do so again. It’s a blistering song.

Myself, I'll wait. All kinds of time until 2024.

Any Montreal natives on here?

Very interesting to see Stade Olympique on the tour, not sure when the last big gig woulda been in there?

Been hoping The Stones would make a return for a show there, so this could be a good sign!

I will definitely have this Metallica gig on my radar come 1-20-23 when the single show tickets go on sale... The Big O is on my bucket list... it'd be nice to know The Stones' plans before that, but we shall see.

A while ago, I forget exactly how long, "recently", whatever that means these days, he was saying he couldn't do 'that' anymore.

Maybe he's one those that says things about not but... .still does anyway.

I just realized that the Seattle date isn't until Labor Day weekend 2024! Almost 2 years ahead of the show. I love Metallica but that's ridiculous!
