Metallica’s Rare Set At Rock In Rio Featured All The Classics

05.10.15 3 years ago 7 Comments

Metallica closed out the first weekend of Rock in Rio’s inaugural US festival in Las Vegas last night, and they did so in fiery fashion. The two-hour set — an especially rare stateside gig for the band — featured countless heavy classics from the earlier part of their discography.

In addition to “Fuel,” James Hetfield & co. tore through tracks like “Master of Puppets,” “King Nothing,” “Disposable Heroes,” “Nothing Else Matters,” “The Unforgiven,” and “Enter Sandman.” For their encore, they wrapped up with a cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Whiskey In The Jar,” “Creeping Death” (off 1984’s Ride the Lightning) and “Seek & Destroy” (off debut album Kill ‘Em All).

Metallica has been working on their first album album in nearly seven years, but they didn’t give Sin City a taste of any new material. Still, something tells me the audience was too busy losing their marbles to really care. Check out the full set list below:
