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.

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.

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!


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.

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.

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.

MP3 is at 256k but I hear it's worth getting the FLAC for a few $$$ more.

Turns out there will be an exhibition of Ross Halfin's photos of Metallica for his new book at an art gallery just outside of Sydney's CBD next week. Book signing as well! Can't wait to meet him!

I just got back from the second Sydney show after going to the one last night also, and must I say, they have been fucking amazing!

Awesome setlists, great people, amazing performances. Ross Halfin took photos of my girlfriend and I with our banner and at the end of the show, Metallica took it and the whole of Acer Arena cheered :D

Lars looks more like Arj Barker in that Drawing.
So what kind of Metal classification would You give to CuntScrape?

I would say Thush Metal.
