Oh, I'd love to be there, but when the tickets were first announced, they only showed the big package sets which cost anywhere from $500 to over $2000 ... EACH.

That was a turn off, as much as I'd love to do the full-on Metallica experience, that price is out of my wheelhouse.

According to Billboard, METALLICA‘s self-titled 1991 album (often referred to as The Black Album) has scored its 500th nonconsecutive week on the Billboard 200 chart. It is now one of only four albums with 500 weeks or more on the tally.

Only three other albums have spent more time on the Billboard 200 chart since it began publishing on a regular weekly basis in 1956 — PINK FLOYD‘s “The Dark Side Of The Moon”(937 weeks), BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS‘ “Legend: The Best Of Bob Marley And The Wailers” (539) and JOURNEY‘s “Greatest Hits” (539).

In 2014, “Metallica” became the first album to sell 16 million copies since Nielsen SoundScanstarted tracking sales in 1991. To date, it has shifted 16.83 million units in the U.S.

“Metallica” was already certified 16 times platinum on December 13, 2012 by the RIAA(Recording Industry Association Of America) for shipments in excess of 16 million copies in the U.S.
Pretty good achievement.

I finally picked up Hardwired. Shameful, I know. It's been out for almost 2 years. I've listened to a few of the songs that were released and none really grabbed me (other than maybe Moth). Didn't hate them, but they didn't do much for me.



Now, as I sit here listening to the full album as it was intended, I LOVE IT!

I think this album will end up in heavy rotation for the foreseable future. I'm really loving what I'm hearing while listening on headphones. Reminds me of some of my favorite Metallica stuff (meaning nothing from 2003-2015)

They did a live version of Frantic recently too. Was cool to see them bring out some St Anger stuff. Album is what it is infamously but Frantic sounded good live with more snare solid drums. Lol

I admit that I'm a Mustaine-nuthugger, but I do appreciate Metallica in general. That Kirk Hammett though... still don't get the casting process.
