Metallica played to a record attending crowd of 19,228 fans of all ages, playing for well over two hours through an 18 song setlist. Metallica opened with two of the newer songs, "Hardwired" and "Atlas, Rise!," from their latest album, Hardwiredto Self-Destruct.

After their song "One" from their fourth studio album, And Justice for All and songs "Holier Than Thou," and two of the new songs "Now That We're Dead" and "Halo on Fire" each band member got their moment with own highlighted solos. Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett provided their incredible drumming and guitar solo respectively while bassist Robert Trujillo had the crowd cheering during his breathtaking bass work.

Throughout the evening Hetfield would take a short break and mention the "Metallica Family" theme to the crowd and would interact with members in audience. Metallica also did a cover of Soundgarden's 1988 tune "Head Injury," which Hetfield dedicated to the late Chris Cornell.

Metallica closed out the evening with "Sad but True", "One," "Master of Puppets," and followed with their encore with "Blackened," "Nothing Else Matters," and of course "Enter Sandman."
