Metallica Live at the Prudential Center [1-31-09]

Metallica continued delivering a devastating onslaught of heavy metal to the Tri-State region, this time taking down the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Jan. 31, 2009. The band blazed through all of the great Death Magnetic cuts that they performed at the Nassau Coliseum on Thursday, however, fans were presented with several old school surprises and rarities.

This show marked the first time I have seen Metallica perform “Ride The Lightning,” “And Justice For All,” “Blitzkrieg,” and “Hit The Lights,” in this area all in their entirety. Other treats included “Battery” and “For Whom The Bell Tolls.”

James Hetfield still sounds perfect at the mic and Kirk Hammet’s pre-song guitar solos were more interesting at this show compared to the weak licks doodled at the Coliseum. Rob Trujillo sported his signature spider walk during the intro to “For Whom The Bell Tolls” and Lars Ulrich brought a little kid on stage to hit his drum kit.
