Battery and The Four Horsemen from Metallica’s Heavy Montreal Show Tour Wrapup

Metallica finally wrapped up the touring for their non-touring 2014!  The last show of their "By Request" show was at the Heavy Montreal festival on August 9th.

The tour was really cool the way they did it, with each city getting to vote on the songs the band played every night, except for the one new song, "Lords of Summer", which they played at the shows to tease the next Metallica album.

Johnnie’s TBT – Meeting Metallica in 1997

Today is the anniversary of Metallica's black album release, so I figured I try this throwback Thursday thing for once.

This doesn't go back to '92, but '97, when Metallica was touring for the Load album, before Reload came out.  I got the chance to hit a couple shows, as I was part of a station event where we gave away a trip to Phoenix for the Metallica show on January 5th, and then we raced back for the show in Las Cruces on January 6th.

Watch a Megadeth Full Live Show from Bloodstock

This is why the internet is awesome.  A band can play a show on a completely different continent on Sunday, and by Monday afternoon, we can watch that show here!

Megadeth is doing some festivals and big shows, while they work on the next Megadeth album, which will hopefully be fast and thrashy again.

Last night, they hit the Bloodstock Open Air festival in England, and tore it up in front of a huge crowd.  Today, we can turn out monitors so the boss can't see them, and watch the entire show, pro-shot on our computers!
