Post by: Manny on April 06, 2010, 10:55:42 PM
Metallica are said to be touring Australia and New Zealand in November 2010.
No proper tour dates yet...

Yeah, a while back I heard about this too... the person who told me said they have some friends in the touring industry, and suggested the dates Nov 5/6.

I can't wait for this. I saw the video of the press conference where Lars mentions they will be here in November and it gave me butterflies.

Over 6 years is way too long.

Wf party bus might be a good idea if the venue is outside the city centre, helps with getting there and back and gives you a chance to knock back some beers with your mates.

From memory, they have only played Frantic once or twice since releasing Death Magnetic.

I think the best live version of that song was at Sydney Big Day Out.

Quote from: Lars Ulrich
?We?re staying out and doing dates up till November, in Australia and New Zealand is where we?re heading in November and then after that we?re gonna take a little bit of chill time, ?cause it?s been a couple of years on the road, and then after that I think we?re just gonna go back and continue with another record. There?s no particular plans to do anything else.?

Last time they were here it was the showgrounds with BDO.

Challenge Stadium?

Dome?
The Castle?

Where would they hold it?

If they decide to lug around the amount of shit that AC/DC had then Subi Oval could be a possibility as it wouldn't interfere with the AFL if the tour was in Nov.

Or they could play the Dome at Burswood like Maiden did - if they travel lighter

Does anybody know when the new venue in Perth is due to be finished? (the one being built on top of the old Ent Cent carpark)

And what's its crowd capacity?




not 100% sure but i think 2013 its meant to be finished and its already way way over budget. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perth_Arena

To be completed 2 years from now and seat 15,000

And like you said - way over budget. To the tune of half a billion dollars or something   :err:




didnt the ent centre seat 15,000 or so? whats the fucking point in building a new one when there was a perfectly good one just sitting there?

Wanna know how come Metallica haven't released a good album since 1988? This is the best explanation ever: http://www.leavethehall.co.uk/lists/metals-greatest-mysteries-solved/

I jest, of course. As it turns out, I pooh-poohed the gigs at length until a not-very-metal friend begged me to go with her on her spare ticket. Grudgingly I agreed but I'm actually kinda looking forward to it. I was at the last two shows at the Ent Centre (the first time as a proud fan, the second time at the behest of my mother, who was worried my little brother and his idiot mates would talk shit to a bikie and get pummelled).

That was a good show and fucking loud! The old entertainment centre really had a great sound. I have already seen Metallica twice in Melbourne last month and they are on fucking fire, it is absolutely freaky how good they are at the moment considering how old they are. Out of all the gigs I have seen in recent times including the mighty Slayer, Metallica undoubtedly blow them all away and I have seen some pretty fucking good gigs from some top notch bands.

I saw them at BDO last time too and if they can be as good as they were there, in that shitty an environment, touring an album as shitty as St Anger... anyone who chooses not to go because they don't like the later material deserves to stay home and suck their own sour balls.

Here's my review: Metallica were orright. Really old stuff they played (Hit The Lights, Four Horseman, even Creeping Death) didn't sound great, not much impact. Some stuff was fast, slow, speeding up, slowing down all over the place (Sad But True, Master of Puppets, Blackened). Their very newest stuff actually translated really well live, from a performance point of view they were the best songs of the night. But, they have far too many slow songs/ballads. And if James mentioned the "Metallica family" one more time I was going to stab someone.

Lamb of God were fucking amazing, played like motherfuckers, did not drop the ball for one second, had the crowd enthralled. After the set finished I was seriously considering trying to get hold of a standing area ticket for Saturday night just so I could see them again.

Baroness are a really great band, pity they were stuck on one side of the stage and couldn't move around more (I assume because of the gear set up around them for LOG and Metallica). I guess it's hard to have a whole heap of impact when you're playing with the house lights still up and daylight coming through from above. Still, impressive.

And $12 for a premix can of spirits and cola, OUCH.

They didnt play Creeping Death (10 points for paying attention) - its the one song I really wanted that they didnt play. I thought they played awesome by the way. Cant be fucked typing much right now, but that was fucking killer! And the cunt that climbed to the top of the rigging - what a MAD FUCKER!!

That show was fucking insane, I was on the rail the whole night right in front of Lars drum kit and in front of one of the mics and we got crushed! Fuck I am hurting though, got bruises everywhere, the crowd was just insane where I was. I managed to catch Lars drink and a guitar pick from Kirk. Metallica were on fire as usual, pity about the sound though but that's not Metallica, that's the fucking shitty Burswood Dome because Metallica sounded a hell of a lot better in Melbourne. But great show, standard set but I would think they will pull out a few surprises tonight. Now I'm off to go meet the band haha! Oh did anyone check out the fucking nutters climbing the support beams? Crazy!

Post by: World Maggot on October 23, 2010, 12:43:54 PM
Man some people are hard to please.

Of course they're gonna play a bunch of shit from their new album, what band doesn't play stuff from the album their touring?
You could look at it this way though:

nothing from St Anger
1 song from Reload
nothing from Load

Sure they played mostly just the well known songs off the earlier albums but I like those songs too. When they're playing to however many thousand at a city they rarely go to they're unlikely to be catering to the pre 90's back catalogue fans, as awesome as that would be.

When they were playing shit like Enter Sandman I just sat back and watched the crowd, made me enjoy those songs heaps more than I expected.

I choose to be thankful for the cool shit we did get rather than lament on what we missed out on. I just don't understand the whinging.

Judging by the security staff they contracted for the night (not to mention using metal detectors on people on the way out of the gig), they could have fooled me. :laugh:

Still, can't say I've ever been in a venue with a fantastic rock/metal sound. At least it's not Rob Pav, or Challenge Stadium.

Ah shit, I meant Seek and Destroy not Creeping Death. Right at the end I was like "which are they gonna play, it's either Seek or Creeping, please be Creeping please be Creeping please be Creeping" so of course it was Seek and Destroy.

But my comment still stands, I think the really old songs seemed kind of flat. Like they've bored with them or something.

Here's my review: Metallica were orright. Really old stuff they played (Hit The Lights, Four Horseman, even Creeping Death) didn't sound great, not much impact. Some stuff was fast, slow, speeding up, slowing down all over the place (Sad But True, Master of Puppets, Blackened). Their very newest stuff actually translated really well live, from a performance point of view they were the best songs of the night. But, they have far too many slow songs/ballads. And if James mentioned the "Metallica family" one more time I was going to stab someone.

They didnt play Creeping Death (10 points for paying attention) - its the one song I really wanted that they didnt play. I thought they played awesome by the way. Cant be fucked typing much right now, but that was fucking killer! And the cunt that climbed to the top of the rigging - what a MAD FUCKER!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't hear Creeping Death, I was starting to get worried that I've already forgotten part of the show! Would have been nice if they'd removed half of hte ballads, and thrown in Whiplash and Creeping Death. Even swapping a ballad for Sanitarium would have been awesome. I doubt they would have played them too well however, they did make plenty of mistakes in the old stuff they played. It was good fun though, don't get me wrong. It was nice to finally see the band, and I had a good time.

I was just waiting for someone to fall of the rigging and kill themselves... idiots. The security just got sick of climbing up and telling them to come down after a while.

Man some people are hard to please.
I choose to be thankful for the cool shit we did get rather than lament on what we missed out on. I just don't understand the whinging.

Agreed.

I dunno how they were thinking that people *wouldn't* climb on it when it's so obviously an ideal thing to climb on.

No way. Friday nights setlist was far superior although I had a much better seat tonight & got to see the "laser" show.
Still happy they played Orion & Whiplash.
I thought it was good that they did two different shows. Adds to the spontaneity and like James said "It keeps them fresh".

How was it down on the floor?

Was a good show. The drunken idiots shat me off a bit though. Chicks dancing in a sexual manner as hot as it looks, ruins the vibe and aggressive feel of the classic metallica songs. EG: Seek and Destroy. In fact any form of dancing to Metal is blasphemy in my book. Unless it's head banging.

The stage setup looked wikid. Looked like a cross between a boxing ring and the medical chamber where Darth Vadar was being reconstructed.

 Wanted to go into the casino afterwards but the line was too long. Even the club had a long line.

Eh. every night this tour the set has been different, so of course Fridays and Saturdays sets would be different. Also Orion on the sat night was a gimme as well after NZ. In fact this whole tour, only 7 songs have been played every night....other than that, the setlists have just been random stuff from all Metallica eras

I think I prefer Fridays setlist, which is good because its the one I went to. Only exception of course being Orion. Lots of whinging in here... what the fuck? It was an AWESOME show, the lights and pyro were really cool, the sound was brilliant from where I was (but Im no expert) and I totally enjoyed the entire evening.... so did my wife and mum (was a bit obscure going to a gig with both of them).

Awesome show again! Didn't get to the very front this time as I had to go meet the band before the show but still got pretty close to the front  ;D Fucking awesome meeting the band, really friendly down to earth guys. Also saw Baroness walk through backstage, Lars went and chatted with them for a bit. But the setlist was amazing. Disposable, Through The Never, Orion, Fight. Only downside was no Creeping Death but hey, no complaints about the show. Can't wait for more next month!

I was in the pit on friday night right near the pole that guy climbed right up the top. Seemed like a massive oversight by security..had they never done a metal gig before? I'm sure its happened many times before, I hope someone got fired because of it.

Also those fuckhead security guards up the front, obviously they were told to push crowd surfers back into the crowd, but their number 1 priority should be to protect the crowd not the fucking band. Some crowd surfers were actually just trying to get down, pulled down by security like every other gig but they kept pushing them back into the crowd. Needless to say it got a bit tedious and I had to drag a few crowd surfers down, there is a time and a place for crowd surfing and that wasn't it. The whole pit was pretty weak in my opinion, but i guess it is a Metallica gig.... Also, stop fucking jumping up and down you fuckheads. /end rant

I hope they have Eve open again pre show. Metal (mostly Metallica) playing and a cool vibe.

    Setlist:
    That Was Just Your Life
    The End Of The Line
    For Whom The Bell Tolls
    Fuel
    Fade To Black
    Broken, Beat & Scarred
    The Four Horsemen
    Sad But True
    The unforgiven
    All Nightmare Long
    One
    Master Of Puppets
    Blackened
    Nothing Else Matters
    Enter Sandman
    - - - - - - - -
    Breadfan
    Hit The Lights
    Seek and Destroy
Kris was hangin for Broke Beaten and scarred last night. But they didn't play it. I was blown away by the set last night. didn't expect them to play the thrashier stuff. like Disposable heros and Fight Fire with Fire(from my experience is a bit of a bitch to play on Bass) in their entirety.

Having said that the only thing I was disappointed about was that no local bands got to play support as it would have been great exposure.

That show was fucking insane, I was on the rail the whole night right in front of Lars drum kit and in front of one of the mics and we got crushed! Fuck I am hurting though, got bruises everywhere, the crowd was just insane where I was. I managed to catch Lars drink and a guitar pick from Kirk. Metallica were on fire as usual, pity about the sound though but that's not Metallica, that's the fucking shitty Burswood Dome because Metallica sounded a hell of a lot better in Melbourne. But great show, standard set but I would think they will pull out a few surprises tonight. Now I'm off to go meet the band haha! Oh did anyone check out the fucking nutters climbing the support beams? Crazy!

I hope you wernt one of the weak fuckers in front of me then, that just stood there and were to busy taking fucking photos with a piece of shit camera to actually act like you were in a pit!!!!!! fuck people that do that SHIT ME!

and to all the people bitching about their tempos being all over the place, do you actually follow this band? its something they have allways done live.
both shows were amazing, was in the pit friday and the grandstand sat, crowd was weak as fuck for LOG on fri which sucks ass cause they were fucking killer!

Apart from their first oz tour in the 80s with Mortal Sin where the promoter probably overode them (they werent as big then & the musos union were still a threat) Metallica have NEVER used Australian support bands.

There was a massive row with the musicians union on their 90s tour as there used to be some kind of stipulation that Australian support acts were a requirement by touring international acts. At least thats how the story goes from my understanding of it.

The pit was too crazy where I was to grab any pictures. I seriously doubt anyone in the area I was in would of been able to get anything at all. But I know what you mean, granted I take a few pics when I can but some guys on Saturday were sitting there filming the whole thing. Just a waste of time in my opinion.

I was in the pit for the first half of the gig on Friday night. It was pretty insane, to the point where I pulled right back for the second half of the show. I ended up having more fun where I could move around a little and headbang, instead of being a sardine hoping no one breaks my toes. Weak I know  :raspberry:

Metallica will always divide a crowd, especially a crowd (Perth metal scene) which can never be pleased. We're Australian, and the simple fact that we're talking about the band still, shows that it was a good show. If we really didn't like it that much, we wouldn't bother to rag on them.

very true i had 3 people around me have to beg to get out of the pit. Security are generally pretty quick to pull someone out when they feel they are going to pass out but these cunts refused to and pushed people back down. I had to lift a girl over the barrier with the help of a couple of others cause the bouncers wouldn't help her. Also saw a guy get his leg snapped.

Friday nights show is now available as a 2CD MP3 download from the Metallica website

Cost is US$9.95 and with the Aussie dollar currently going gangbusters it's a good time to purchase anything that's greenback priced. Their website accepts Paypal which is very handy

There's also CD inserts and disc labels to download and print

Up to you... or you might be waiting for Saturday's show... still to come...




Yeah, already downloaded my copy this morning.

Yep DL mine as well.

They were selling the download cards at the merch stands for $10. Considering shirts were $50 I reckon its a bargain.
It's a great idea too.
