I was so excited to win these tickets off the local radio a year in advance to the date of the show and I was stoked. I've been to a lot of concerts in 45 years. Made it for the end of Jim Bruer's opening act and from what other reviewers said, glad I did. The music was muffled (too much low end bass), you couldn't understand a word that any of the band members were saying. I also expected more from a stage in the round as Metallica's back was to us most of the time, especially Lars Ulrich, and those cubes. When they dropped low you couldn't see the stage. It was my husband's last concert, as 2 months after I won the tickets, he was diagnosed with end stage cancer. The people at the concert were the best, helping my husband up and down the stairs. They were the real stars of this show!!

I love this band! BUT the sound was terrible! I was hoping it was just me, but I read through many reviews from other venues and many (not all) had the same reaction. Huge bummer! Not sure how Metallica hasn't worked to fix the problem. (It's possible, it's just me, but I don't think so). Set list was fine, but James's voice could not be heard well at all over the instruments.

I left because it was that bad, My son didn't like it either . He couldn't understand the words as well. Little sad when I hyped them up! Last one I attend! rock on men!

3.0 star rating Jeff Cole from Indianapolis, Indiana


Jim Breuer's "act" lasted nearly an hour and a half. That's an hour and a half too long. I was annoyed before the actual concert even started. Metallica's sound was too bass heavy. I could barely hear the vocals or lead guitar. I was fortunate enough to sit very close to the stage. However, those that were not so fortunate had to experience "display cubes" that were lowered randomly throughout the show which obstructed their view. The set list was a mix of old and new, but I would have preferred more old and less new. Songs that I would have like to have heard but were: Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Kill 'Em All, Battery, Whiplash, and Orion (to name a few). To say that Metallica did not perform to my expectations would be not true. From what I COULD hear, they are still ROCK STARS. I would encourage them to revise their opening act, clean up their sound, and play more "old sh*t".

3.0 star rating Daniel from Portland, Oregon


I have to agree with Cal. Dont know what happened to the sound. Kick drum and high frequencys on leads all i herd. No vocals to speak of. Love the guys tho. What they have accomplished is unbelievable! Im a sound engineer and dont expect anything with live accoustics but something was amiss big.

3.0 star rating Nick from Las Vegas, Nevada


Love Metallica, but this Vegas show was not that good. I expected a load show with an awesome Light show. Did not happen. Was happy to go see them but overall not that happy.

3.0 star rating Frankie from New York, New York


Metlife Stadium is not only a dreadful place re. accessibility. It also seems impossible to get acceptable sound quality there. Metallica was Metallica. But they sounded awfully bad, despite me sitting in level 1. 80000 fans may bring you a lot of money. But you deserve better than that. Will be there again on Sunday though.
