Metallica @ SoFi Stadium

By Los Angeles Digest Staff on August 28th, 2023 | Music

Over the weekend, the powerhouse heavy metal group – Metallica had two sold-out shows (back-to-back) at the SoFi stadium. One on Friday night and the following on Sunday night. Both shows broke single attendance records (previously was Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’) – by allowing an open “snake pit” area to allow for fans to get the best fan experience during either show date. This resulted in an attendance of approximately 78,000 on each of the two show dates. The group’s ‘M72 World Tour’ was in promoting their 11th studio album, 72 Seasons. But as many fans know – the group’s shows are all about their famous hits and tunes. A gambit to showcase a variety of songs on each night and have each night to be unique.

Setlist (Night One) – Creeping Death, Harvester of Sorrow, Leper Messiah, The Memory Remains, Lux Æterna, Too Far Gone?, Fade to Black, Shadows Follow, Orion, Nothing Else Matters, Sad but True, The Day That Never Comes, Hardwired, Fuel, Seek & Destroy, Master of Puppets
