Sound: As far as singing goes, James' was way better than the voice from the opening band Necropsya, a peruvian death metal band. James used a variety of guitar, ranging from his famed KL Explorer, to his Truckster. Kirk also used a lot of his custom made guitars, like the KH-2, his Dracula ESP and the famed Boris Karloff Mummy graphic guitar. Rob used 5 string basses most of the time, and eventually used a four string based. Lars was sitting behind his huge drum set, by Tama. What can I say, Metallica brought more sound than a hurricane would bring to the Caribbean. Impressive clean, massive distorted tones and incredible drum tone. // 10
Perfomance: I can honestly tell you that the audience loved the show. The setlist was well put together and was beautifully perfomed.
01. Creeping Death: the crowd went nuts when they came on with this song. Also is worth noting that during the DIE chant, it could be heard by a kilometer.
02. For Whom The Bell Tolls: they didn't stop the enrgy from flowing, For Whom The Bell Tolls really had the crowd jumping like mad.
03. Fuel: and they still didn't stop. Fuel opened with a burst of actual fire, you coul feel the heat a hundred feet away.
04. Harvester Of Sorrow: then the heavinnes kicked in, Harvester Of Sorrow made you head bang until your neck simply cracked.
05. Fade To Black: one of the highlights of the concert. Impressively played and very well put together.
06. That Was Just Your Life: out of the sudden, you hear a familiar heartbeat, then go into a fast paced riff that made the crowd go absolutely crazy.
07. The End Of The Line: then comes The End Of The Line. Very well played and and impressive solo by Kirk.
08. Sad But True: then the heavinnes kicks in, again. But this time in the shape of Sad But True, a classic from The Black Album.
09. Broken, Beat and Scarred: just a few words, What Don't Kill Ya Make Ya More Strong. Very good song.
10. Cyanide: the only let down of the concert. But still they made up for it later on.
11. One: you then hear gunshots, war sounds, a helicopter going past, then an impressive fireworks shos, and then that very familiar starting riff and solo. Getting heavier as the song progresses, and then the blisterng machine-gun drum solo by Lars, followed by one of Kirk's most notable solos.
12. Master Of Puppets: and when you thought it couldn't get any better, a screech a of a guitar, followed by a fast paced down-picked riff by James and Kirk. Goes into the familiar chorus and then as the song progresses, the famed solo by Kirk. One more thign to say, the crowd went absolutely mad with this song.
13. Battery: then you hear a nice and calm acoustic guitar, going into a thrash riff. You simply cannot stop the Battery.
14. Nothing Else Matters: after a very impressive solo by Kirk "The Rippa" Hammett, comes that very familiar arpeggio, and an incredible piece by Metallica.
15. Enter Sandman: after the solo from Nothing Else Matters is over, athere is a little moment of silence, in which James shows us his Death Magnetic Pick, then the finger, then the horns, and finnally goes into thge opening riff of Enter Sandman, the crowd was pleased with that.

16. Am I Evil?: after a little brak, Metallica were back with more, this time they playeds their famous version of the Diamond Head classic, Am I Evil?. Even though they just played half of it, they made up for it by...
17. Blackened: ...playing Blackened, a true classic from the ...And Just For All. That starting riff was enough to get us going full force on the headbanging.
18. Seek and Destroy: James wanted to play one more song for us, and it was three simple words: SEEK AND DESTROOOY. An absolute classic and definately worth the wait.
One of the funniest thing from the concert was when James showed us the finger. And also when Roberto Trujillo shouted into the mic, "Los Peruanos son de putamadre!" (which in english means, peruvians are f--kin awesome!) // 9
Overall Impression: The concert took place in Lima, Peru, on the Estadio de la Universidad de San Marcos, the 19th of January, 2010. The band that opened for Metallica was peruvian death metal band, Necropsya. The one thing I didn't quite like about this concert was the setlist, I thought that it could be better in many ways. For example, you could have put All Nightmare Long instead of Cyanide or The Day That Never Comes instead of The End Of The Line. But it was still an amazing concert. The tickets were actually quite expensive, but they were 110% worth the money. // 9
