... And holly shit, what a show that was!
They were tight as shit, and were obviously having TONS of fun. It felt like they were 20 again lol. Hetfield kept flippin' and adressing the crowd at how freaking loud it was. And he was right... Holy shit, it's been 5 years since they last came to Montreal and people were literaly going fucking crazy, yelling like it was their last hour on earth.
Having the stage at the very center of the arena was a great thing too. All 4 members kept switching positions so that everyone in the arena could see them.
Sound was really good (especially compared to the first acts Gojira and Lamb of God, wich I did not really care for... Couldn't hear a thing really). Highlights of the evening for me : "Blackened", "Shortest straw", "Hit the lights", "Seek and Destroy", "Master of puppets" and "For whom the bell tolls". They also did a couple of the new songs, wich were great too.
Sorry for the very crappy cell phone pics.
Oh yeah, and I went for free.
