Yeah, the show was great, but the sound was horrible. Most songs were unrecognizable. You couldn't hear vocals and rarely could hear the guitars. All that came through was the kick drum and the bass guitar. I expected more from from band like Metallica.

2.0 star rating T&J from Raleigh, North Carolina


There was not opening act. I do not consider a guy playing CD's and another guy talking for 1.5 hours and opening act. The biggest disappointment of the night, THE SOUND! Something was way off! I refuse to believe that Metallic could be one of those bands that just doesn't sound good live but something was way wrong with the sound! I thought it was me until my husband (a HUGE fan that had been waiting for this concert for months) was ready to leave on the 4th song. Been to a lot of concerts and NEVER left before the end of the first set but it happened last night! For the price paid for "cheap tickets" , I'm disappointed, mad, and sad all at the same time. We like Metallica but this will go down as the WORST concert we have ever attended.

I was at the show at Quicken Loans Arena last night and this was the worst sounding concert I have ever been to for any band. The opening act was terrible and the time that Metallica starts should be announced on the ticket. The Four Horseman is a much better act for the money!

The Fiserv forum in Milwaukee was the third time i have seen Metallica. The opening act was incredibly annoying, but i suppose the venue wanted people to have time to spend money on beer, etc. The moment Metallica started playing i was very disappointed. It was not loud enough, i could talk to my wife next to me, and we were pretty close. The drums and bass guitar came through. The electric guitars and especially lead was practically non existent. I expected more speakers, sounded like they were trying to push more sound than there system could handle. 750 dollars for 3 tickets, what a joke.

The band was rocking as hard as ever, but I could not hear James at all! So disappointed. I can't believe that Jim Breuer as the opening act was terrible.

2.0 star rating Josh from Indianapolis, Indiana


Sound was horrible. The setlist selection was......crap. Save your money and go watch a high school Metallica tribute band.

2.0 star rating Metallica Junkie from Indiana from Indianapolis, Indiana


I saw Metallica in 2018 in Chicago at Soldier Field and they were next level awesome. Fast forward to Indianapolis @ Bankers Life Field House and the sound system ruined everything. I mean it sounded horrible. I will always be a huge Metallica fan but idk who to blame for the sound quality in the building. I saw RHCP last year at the same venue and they sounded great, so I'm inclined to believe it was a Metallica sound engineer responsible for the atrocious sound quality of last nights concert. I feel bad for anyone who had not seen them before, because this is one of the best live bands you will ever see, and last night was an anomaly. (I HOPE) Regardless, I dropped around $400 after fees and all taxes for 3 tickets at the absolute last row of the venue but I knew it would be worth it, boy was I wrong. These guys rock so hard, but all that was put out last night was noise. It seemed like all instruments were plugged into the same amp. I love these guys, but I'm very disappointed today
