Final vid for 2009

And the final indoor gig video for a while. The San Jose video has the usual suspects in meet and greet, tuning, plus the huddle right before the show, and the laser infested That Was Just Your Life! Have a great holiday everyone, and we'll see you in 2010 with more Metallica On tour madness!

Back to the beginning

Metallica's first ever show was played right here in Anaheim, at the old Radio City. 27 years and 9 months later, they boys are back once again to play the Honda Center. They have actually played in Anaheim a total of 9 times, with the last time in 04 at this same venue, which used to be called the Arrowhead Pond. Video Update: Vegas is almost done, and the others will be coming next week. Thanks for being so patient on the videos.
