Metallica kicked off their show with That was just your life, a song from their latest album, this evening at the O2 Arena in London.
The stage was set in the middle of the arena, doing the gig in the round properly. The stage set up gave the entire audience a great view, maybe except if you stuck in the back of the highest tier. Binoculars are definitely needed if you are seated that far back.
Metallica is really in top shape on this tour. Every song is performed with enthusiasm and some of that rock and roll flavour.
The crowd was electric, really up for some Metallica on this night. Songs like Sad but true, Enter Sandman and Master of Puppets are definitely crowd pleasers.
Among the highlights for me were One, Overkill and the explosive last song Seek and Destroy. I screamed, in an attempt to sing, along to all of them.
A denim vest with patches and tight jeans are the perfect fit for me.
