You want stats?

Here are some stats.... these 5 shows in Melbourne had over 75,000 fans in attendance. For all the shows in Australia and New Zealand, over 300,000 fans saw their favorite band play. Depending on who you ask, the stats may difffer, but this is what I have: The World Magnetic tour crossed 45 countries, 143 arena shows, 34 festival shows, 29 stadium shows, 4 club/theater shows, 3 tv/radio shows, 2 hall of fame shows, 3790 songs, and not a single setlist was the same.

Yesterday seems as though it never existed

This Melbourne crowd was chanting Metallica before they took they stage. They have brought a whole new level of energy to this 5th show, and final show of the tour! Set started with Life, Fuel, Disposable, Thingy, and now Fade is Ending. Wolf is next, with a song later in the set that has NEVER been played before on this tour!

Misc pics

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health. The Metallica crew are shaving and sporting their new moustaches in support of this event. Plus, James spent some time yesterday at the V8 supercar practice. Driver Greg Murphy took James on an exhilarating 3 lap ride that reached speeds up to 170mph! Needles to say, James had the biggest smile for the rest of the day!
