Metallica: Footage From Second Mexico City Concert
Official footage of Metallica's pre-show meet-and-greet, tuning-room jam and "Fuel" performance on July 30 at the second show of the band's eight-concert run at Palacio de los Deportes (Sports Palace) in Mexico City is ready now, Blabbermouth reports. The video can be seen below. Metallica's setlist for July 30 concert: 01. Creeping Death 02. For Whom The Bell Tolls 03. Fuel 04. Ride The Lightning 05. One 06. Cyanide 07. The Memory Remains 08. Wherever I May Roam 09. Sad But True 10. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 11. ...And Justice For All 12. Fade To Black 13. Master Of Puppets 14. Battery 15. Nothing Else Matters 16. Enter Sandman Encore: 17. Breadfan 18. Seek & Destroy Two members of Metallica's road crew caught fire during each of the first Mexico concert, as the two stagehands were seen struggling with a malfunctioning pyro launcher during "Enter Sandman" when both were suddenly engulfed in flame. As frontman James Hetfield called for the band to stop playing, other crew members doused the men with fire extinguishers and took them off the stage in stretchers, with the band resuming its show a few minutes later. A spokesperson for the promoter said the stunt was "all part of the show", and in fact Metallica has staged this type of "accident" before during its 1997 tour, on which the show ended with the stage seemingly collapsing around the band as one crew member caught fire and another dangled upside down from the fallen lighting rig. The effect was caught on the band's "Cunning Stunts" DVD. The show on July 28 marked the debut of a new 140-foot-by-50-foot stage that features "colossal components and striking visual elements spanning Metallica's entire 30-year career," meaning that the "accident" stunt could be back for an encore. At a press conference before the show, frontman James Hetfield said that the band was focused on "staying alive" while performing alongside the "dangerous elements" of the new production, with bassist Robert Trujillo adding, "Like James said, it's very dangerous - we've got stuff flying every which way." A post in the "Tour Journal" section of Metallica's official web site related that "shit really hit the fan (during "Enter Sandman" with) loud bangs, random fireworks, falling towers, falling spot light guy, falling scaffolding, guy was caught on fire... then a complete blackout." Following its Mexico City stand, Metallica next plays the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco and then two shows in late August in Vancouver, which will be filmed for the band's upcoming 3D movie.
