I was really impressed. My third Metallic concert, and it damn good. I mean these guys are 60 years old, they've played so long together, they know what the others I'm the band are thinking. Definitely kid friendly, Awesome, I hope they come back soon. They kicked ass in true Metallic fashion!!!!!

After being a fan since the late eighties, I finally got the chance to see them at the Moda Center and was excited to bring my wife to see a legendary metal band. Before Metallica came on, a guy who I understand has know the band for years came out introduced himself as the "DJ" and played some classic metal songs. But what we thought was going to be something brief turned into around an hour and a half of "scrap" material. We were almost worried that an emergency happened with the band and he was sent out to fill up the time with whatever he could think of. By the time Metallica finally came out everyone was so fatigued that we weren't was like we were glad they finally came out so that we could get to the end of the show and go home. I agree with the sound issues from the other reviews from the tour. I've gone to dozens of mind-blowing concerts from major headliners, and I hate to say this wasn't one of them. 3 starts only because of their legend status.

The opening act and all the stalling and boring banter with the crowd was annoying at the least! The band didn't even take the stage until almost 9:30pm. By then we were all so annoyed and frustrated it was hard to get into the show.

I can't find words to discride how awful this attempted mock comedy/reality show warm up was. If I could invent a word it would be SHAWMFUL, a hybrid or shameful and awful. My kids first metal show and we both agreed during the warm up that we wanted to leave and go to Denny's for a $5 meal while watching a 90s Metallica show on YouTube. Once the music started all the aggravation subsided, somewhat. I say somewhat because Breuer was still a running joke from the people around us who were fearful he would return to the stage. Metallica rocked tho!

4th time seeing Metallica live. The comedian dude that opened was....bad. I like having opening acts to warm up the crowd. Once Metallica hit the stage my excitement quickly turned to disappointment. The sound was brutal....I couldn't hear a single word and Kirk was completely drowned out by Lars and Rob. Been looking forward to this show for months and spent a good chunk of change on good seats. Love these guys to death and i'll go see them anytime they come near here but man did the sound crew miss the mark here. The stage was set up really well with the exception of the video cubes they had going up and down, at times really restricting, and sometimes completely blocking the view of the stage. From one the biggest names in the game this fell short.

Jim Breuer warmup was a Bust! So painful. Didn’t platy creeping, wherever, sanitarium etc. but they sounded crisp and raw. High energy. Need to have metal bands warmup

3.0 star rating Andrew Tester from Nashville, Tennessee


I’ve been to 2 different shows (Run the Jewels/Lorde and Metallica) at Bridgestone and both times the sound quality was pretty bad. There was so much low end (kick/bass drum and bass) that it made the concert sound like a rumbling mess. Hard to hear the lead guitars or the vocals. Also, the seats are tiny. Not much space at all. I’ve been wanting to see Metallica my whole life and I figured the sound was going to be stellar but I was unfortunately disappointed. :(
