The way the stage is pushed to one side of the field, about 50% of the seats are poor views of the band. We all love the thumping bass of Metallica but seemed to drown out guitars and vocals. Maybe it was due to where I was sitting. The giant wrapped screens I would have preferred to be able to watch all shots of the band, but often just moving patterns.

Metallica was to worried about new album Playlist to promote sales. Older songs were Meh! I would of loved to here a number of songs such as The Four Horsemen!, But the Playlist was short and lazy with no oncore as the audience couldn't stroke their ego. Review by fan who hasn't missed a concert since the warehouse days. Best wishes!

3.0 star rating Less from Detroit, Michigan


I started seeing Metallica in the 80"s when the music mattered.I'm blessed to be able to afford seeing Metallica in Dallas in the snake pit both nights and in Detroits snake pit both nights.In Dallas I stood both nights in the center of the pit just watching. The sound was so bad that I decide in Detroit I was going to see them up Closer so I could at least see there finger actually play the music. Plus how much worse could the sound be from Dallas to Detroit get. Well it did.One person away from the stage. Myself and a young attendant who allowed me to stand side ways to see up closer.Metallica"s head of security who's name started with a D which we will just call him Dick had him removed and most likely fired for letting a beautiful women get a 1/2 a person closer to the stage. YEAH that's rock and roll. Because I was close I got to watched the whole thing go down. How Odious.They talk about the Metallica family as one of their head liners are slitting women's throats, stabbing human beings on stage. So much for family. So Sad it use to be about the music. We now know if that was the case They wouldn't be playing in a 70 or 110 thousand person stadium would they.Money Grab.

This is a great band, and they sounded horrible throughout the show. I can only imagine it was the venue, as Metallica has always been consistently great. The stage and show were down really well. I can't understand the reason for the horrible sound of the performance though. I wish their was a way to get your money back!

Attended the Metallica show at the Wells Fargo Center last night. The sound system was horrendous. Couldn't hear vocal or Kirk's guitar. How does this happen at a show this big? Not sure if it was the venue or Metallica's system, but it needs to be fixed fast. Changed our seats to a different location and it was a little better.

2.0 star rating Jason from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Ok.. die hard Metallica fan here... it has been a while since I have see. Them.. maybe them not having an opening act is their norm now, but was odd to have Jim Brewer their. Seem like he crashed the party because he is playing Pittsburgh tomorrow night.. awful opener in my opinion. Then Metallica finally came on stage.. been waiting for this for a long time.. and the sound was horrible. Someone had to have been fired for that non Metallica feel/sound. The band just seemed off as well. Maybe the sound was just that bad, but I was on the floor and their were times that Lars rushed songs.. Kirk was late. Or his guitar was out of tune.. nothing else matters.. his strat sounded horrible.. how could a guitar tech allow that to happen. I am disappointed.. still a die hard fan and I rocked it out as much as I could, but I couldn’t believe I dropped the amount of money that I did for a bush league performance from a band that is not bush league.

At the very first noise Metallica made...I immediately said: This is not loud enough. I hope the remedy this along the tour. I also felt like I could have brought a non-metal fan to this show and they would have enjoyed it. I also felt that their show is geared towards youth, i.e. PG rated. I read that the setlist was immediately changed after the Madison show, and for good reason. The song choices caused the fans to be very low energy, including myself. I felt that I overpaid greatly for this concert. The stage setup is legit though, it's cool and you will get a decent view no matter where you sit.
