Metallica, London – 15/09/2008

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to make it to the O2 Arena at the same time that Metallica happened to be playing the second gig of their Death Magnetic tour. Huge thanks to Toby Henderson for getting me a ticket. It was a bucket list event for me – that box is ticked now!

We saw

We met, we drank (thanks to Twitter for bringing us together)

Those white dots are camera ‘phones…
…Hetfield told the audience to put their ‘phones away…it’ll never be as good as the live experience. How true. I “do believe” that camera ‘phones should be banned from gigs of this calibre, although it’s very hard to enforce. Taking a handful of photographs is probably alright (as I did), however a lot of folks had their camera ‘phones out and up for the entire gig…such as waste and loss of enjoyment, in my opinion.
