Favourite Metallica live show/shows
Dublin Point Depot July 1999; The smallest indoor European gig in 1999! The whole experience was great. Right from the grueling pilgrimage (by National Express!) from Folkestone to Dublin as well as the pub crawl around the city with 2 metal friends that had been at the Dynamo Open Air gig with me a month or so prior to this compact show. The setlist on the 1999 tour was one of the best I'd witnessed. Old and new with a spattering of Garage Days Revisited! Eric Bells appearance on Whisky was the icing on the cake and a moment I'll never forget. Great gig, great crowd and bloody great hangover on the ferry going home....oh, and they played Turn The Page!

S&M Symphony & Metallica Berlin 1999; Yet again a Euro excursion that was never going to disappoint. And again, the journey that could have been so painful was turned into a gargantous belly of laughs with the first (unofficial) outing of a batch of Met World members! The build up to the gig was surreal, the gig was great and another show that will always be up there with the best. Made even more special since the death of Michael Kamen recently.

Werchter Festival July 2004; After seeing the boys at Donington (well 3 outta 4 ain't bad) and meeting up with a beefy stesh of the Metworld contingent for the Parc des Princes gig (another great show), I headed over to the Rock Werchter for the last European mainland gig on the Madly In Anger With The World Tour 04. The set in my opinion rivaled 1999. A real blend of every angle that Metallica have covered (and I got Memory Remains this year at last!). The Belgians (as always) were an excited, friendly crowd and by sheer fluke I managed to bump into Matthijs (Harvesters Of Holland) and have a beer with him before the boys did the business. The Pyro show was a great spectacle too. Jump In The Fire & Seek & Destroy ended the tour. I ventured back to good ol' Blighty very, very happy and pondering the possibility of taking in a US date on the tour...

New Orleans Arena, Louisiana, La, USA 2004. Taking MetWorld On Tour is always going to be an adventure with the added bonus of a Met show thrown in. The decision to go to New Orleans was based purely on time off work, tickets available and Expedia quoting me happy. It panned out nicely too. The seeds of this trip originally were planted back in June when the Hectorial suggested a State side jolly for the next tour. Fair play to him! Seeing Met 'In The Round' brought back memories from the Load tour but this time I was on the rail. Trying to savour the event took some doing due to the anticipation of what they would play and sheer enormity of traveling a round trip of 10,000 miles to see the boys. I was not left unhappy. The crowd rocked, I got a few songs I never heard live before and No Leaf Clover was in the cleft yet again. The whole socialising thingy that took me to the French Quarter made the trip complete. The patrons of Bourban street were complete fuckers (in a very good & positive way!)!!!! I don't think I've ever drunk so much! Coupled with being Jet Lagged worse than Alan Whicker after a tough week at work, made for an exceptional MetWorld On Tour expo.

Metallica Experience
My Meet and Greet experience from Athens 03/07/07

After the inevitable waiting about for the guys to arrive we were taken backstage and lined up ready to meet the band we have been following for many years. One by one they emerged. Rob was first, he seemed in good form, very happy to pose for a few snaps and see how we all were. Next up was Kirk, again he seemed his usual calm self making general chit chat and posing for photo's. To be honest, it took up until now for me to relax a little and prepare some questions for James & Lars. Big Jim strolled round next, he was quite shocked as I was English! I think he was expecting a 100% Greek M&G! We debated about the possibility of playing Breadfan or even changing the opening song, I got a generic "We'll put it in the suggestion box" reply but he genuinely came across as a nice bloke. Was I star struck... just a tad. After about 5 hours (slightly exaggerated) or so, Lars made it out, he too was shocked to be speaking to an Englishman in Athens! We spoke for some time about the set and the possibility of No Leaf Clover making a return. He was well up for it!!! Shame it didn't get an airing till Sunday at Wembley, maybe I planted the Clover seed!?! Lars was amazing though. He genuinely seemed to enjoy speaking to the fans and didn't seem just to go through the motions of "sign, picture & move on". Considering it was well under an hour before show time, he seemed happy to take his time and make sure all the M&G winners got to have a chat.
