Metallica played the first of two shows celebrating its 40th anniversary last night at San Francisco, California’s Chase Center.
While in-person tickets were available exclusively to members of the group’s Fifth Member fan club, Metallica fans across the globe were able to view the performance live from home or on mobile via Amazon Music, Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, and Prime Video (with or without Prime on-demand viewing membership). The show — along with tomorrow night’s (Sunday, December 19) gig at the same venue — will then be made available exclusively at The Coda Collection/Prime Video channel for subsequent viewing.
As of a week ago, limited tickets for Friday night’s show were going for between $757 and $1,457 via Ticketmaster, while tickets for Sunday’s concert were going for at least $582, with several higher-priced tiers.
The setlist for the December 17 concert was as follows:
01. The Ecstasy Of Gold (intro)
02. Hit The Lights
03. Creeping Death
04. Trapped Under Ice
05. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
07. The Shortest Straw
09. Sad But True
10. Nothing Else Matters
11. King Nothing
12. Fixxxer (live debut)
14. No Leaf Clover
