Tastes Metallic

Due to the facts that a) I became the proud co-owner of a new digital camera yesterday and b) I scored tickets to last night's Metallica show at Nassau Coliseum, you now see before you a selection of images captured by yours truly at that very event. You can read my account of the show--wherein I time-travel back to eighth grade to ask "Why, oh why?"--by following this link to the TONY blog. (Yes, those are black Metallica beach balls you see in the last picture; you'll have to read the review for more on that.) A full set list appears below the pics.

Don't forget about Tim and Eric tonight (see below)! I will see you there.

Song 17 was Phantom Lord from Kill 'em All

Thanks for sharing your experience. I enjoyed the show. It's probably one of the best Metallica concert that I've been to....and I've been to many since the "Master of Puppets" tour. The stage set up hearkens back to simplier times....and I'm sure with a purpose. I know some people will say that Metallica has lost it's edge. For the past couple of albums I was almost convinced that they have...its good to have the old albums to listen to get hope. Metallica has certainly redeemed themselves with Death Magnetic.
