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.

Metallica’s Black Album Came Out on This Day

In 1992, I was in Kansas getting ready for work, and I clearly remember seeing the video for "Enter Sandman" come on MTV.  Yes, this was back when MTV actually showed music videos, and not crappy (un)reality shows.  Where were you?  What were you doing?

There was so much anticipation for the new album, since they'd been touring relentlessly for their previous albums, and everyone was excited to see what they would do to top ...And Justice for All.

They went in a totally different direction, instead of trying to top it!
