Monday Fresh: Metallica Perform 'Ride The Lightning' In Its Entirety
Metallica's two-day festival Orion Music + More kicked off Saturday night, June 23 at the popular Atlantic City, New Jersey concert venue Bader Feld, reports The band headlined both nights of Orion Music + More and played "Ride The Lightning" in its entirety one night and "The Black Album" in its entirety the other. This is the only time the band performed their classic sophomore album, "Ride The Lightning," in its entirety in North America. In an interview with CBS Local, Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett said, "I know 'Ride The Lightning' forwards and backwards. It's not like 'The Black Album,' where there are three or four songs that we rarely play. Over the course of the years, we've played most of 'Ride The Lightning', except for one song we've never done, 'Escape'. It was pretty easy [to re-learn those songs]. We put way more time into learning 'The Black Album' than 'Ride The Lightning'." Watch the full performance below ("Ride The Lightning" starts around the 38:00-mark). The setlist is as follows: 01. Hit the Lights 02. Master of Puppets 03. The Four Horsemen 04. Sad But True 05. Hell and Back 06. The Call of Ktulu 07. Creeping Death 08. Escape 09. Trapped Under Ice 10. Fade to Black 11. For Whom the Bell Tolls 12. Ride the Lightning 13. Fight Fire with Fire 14. Nothing Else Matters 15. Enter Sandman Encore 16. Battery 17. One 18. Seek & Destroy
