Metallica’s Death Magnetic world tour 2008/2009 rolls on. Metallica played a concert in Missouri, USA on 25th October 2008. Stjoenews reviews the concert and reports that a symbol of death was literally hanging overhead during Metallica’s performance at the Sprint Center in Kansas City Saturday night, where nearly 14,000 people witnessed the an old-school metal show where rock icons performed the genre with maximum toughness and precision.

Metallica’s singer James Hetfield referred to himself as a “deaf old man”, while Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich got on the mic and asked the crowd if they should do this “more than once every four fucking years?”. The full Metallica concert setlist in Kansas City:

That Was Just Your Life
The End Of The Line
Harvester Of Sorrow
Ride The Lightning
Broken, Beat And Scarred
Sad But True
Until It Sleeps
Wherever I May Roam
The Day That Never Comes
Master Of Puppets

Seek and Destroy

The day after, Metallica stopped at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa. Des Moines Register reviews the Metallica concert and reports that more than 9,800 fans attended the show, many packed into a general-admission area surrounding the stage. Mosh pits and pumping fists were constant from the crowd, along with waving lighters during solos.

Austin metal band The Sword and New Orleans supergroup Down opened the show. Down got a good reaction from the crowd, particularly when frontman Phil Anselmo dedicated the song “Lifer” to his murdered Pantera bandmate “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott (shot and killed on stage in 2004).

Lars brought up a lucky Metallica fan from the front row to count in Seek And Destroy. “Am I the only one who thinks Metallica should come around more than every 12 years?” Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich asked the crowd before leaving the stage. The full Iowa Metallica concert setlist:

    Going to the show in Newark on 1/31. I am sooo psyched they are getting back to the hard stuff I think the album sounds great. Rick Rubin does wonders re energizing legends.

    Going to the show in Edmonton, i’ve been waiting about fourteen years to see them (from Tuktoyaktuk, where they played a show labour day back in ‘95) was just a bit too young to attend the show back home (age of four). should be a great one.
