Metallica Rocks The New Wembley Stadium

Metallica rocked the new Wembley stadium in London for two nights in a row. Saturday, the boys turned on the autopilot and played the Black Album hits for the Live Earth show. Sad But True, Nothing Else Matters and Enter Sandman were played, same set (different order) as the band did in 1992 for the Freddie Mercury tribute show.

BBC reports some complaints about them cutting the Metallica set from the live broadcast.

“Bad language by stars attracted 123 complaints - but more than three times that amount were unhappy about rock group Metallica’s set being cut short. Metallica were seen playing Sad But True and Nothing Else Matters. But BBC presenter Jonathan Ross interrupted their set to introduce a recording of Weather With You by Crowded House from Live Earth in Sydney in place of the Metallica song Enter Sandman. Some 413 people complained about the decision.”

Sunday night Metallica headlined Wembley, playing the regular Sick Of The Studio set, with surprise being the inclusion of No Leaf Clover instead of Ride The Lightning.

Here is Enter Sandman for those who missed it:
