I love this band! BUT the sound was terrible! I was hoping it was just me, but I read through many reviews from other venues and many (not all) had the same reaction. Huge bummer! Not sure how Metallica hasn't worked to fix the problem. (It's possible, it's just me, but I don't think so). Set list was fine, but James's voice could not be heard well at all over the instruments.

3.0 star rating Scott Waertz from Louisville, Kentucky


I left because it was that bad, My son didn't like it either . He couldn't understand the words as well. Little sad when I hyped them up! Last one I attend! rock on men!

3.0 star rating Jeff Cole from Indianapolis, Indiana


Jim Breuer's "act" lasted nearly an hour and a half. That's an hour and a half too long. I was annoyed before the actual concert even started. Metallica's sound was too bass heavy. I could barely hear the vocals or lead guitar. I was fortunate enough to sit very close to the stage. However, those that were not so fortunate had to experience "display cubes" that were lowered randomly throughout the show which obstructed their view. The set list was a mix of old and new, but I would have preferred more old and less new. Songs that I would have like to have heard but were: Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Kill 'Em All, Battery, Whiplash, and Orion (to name a few). To say that Metallica did not perform to my expectations would be not true. From what I COULD hear, they are still ROCK STARS. I would encourage them to revise their opening act, clean up their sound, and play more "old sh*t".

I have to agree with Cal. Dont know what happened to the sound. Kick drum and high frequencys on leads all i herd. No vocals to speak of. Love the guys tho. What they have accomplished is unbelievable! Im a sound engineer and dont expect anything with live accoustics but something was amiss big.

3.0 star rating Nick from Las Vegas, Nevada


Love Metallica, but this Vegas show was not that good. I expected a load show with an awesome Light show. Did not happen. Was happy to go see them but overall not that happy.

2.0 star rating Joe from Las Vegas, Nevada


This is a great band, and they sounded horrible throughout the show. I can only imagine it was the venue, as Metallica has always been consistently great. The stage and show were down really well. I can't understand the reason for the horrible sound of the performance though. I wish their was a way to get your money back!

2.0 star rating MIke from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Attended the Metallica show at the Wells Fargo Center last night. The sound system was horrendous. Couldn't hear vocal or Kirk's guitar. How does this happen at a show this big? Not sure if it was the venue or Metallica's system, but it needs to be fixed fast. Changed our seats to a different location and it was a little better.
